The cultivation of Brendan's talent and inspiration started at a very young age, going back to the third grade when he met fellow classmate Michael Bayley. Under Michael's expert tutelage, Brendan was introduced to rudimentary songwriting techniques. The youthful synergy inspired some advanced creations, and the influence of Michael can be heard in Brendan's music today.
Brendan's assault on the local scene began with began piano lessons at the tender age of six. He received these lessons from a reputable teacher; a so-called Mrs. Semen. Yes, you read correctly... Mrs. Semen. Humble beginings count, you know.
More recently, he has been taken under the wing of the generous Brian W. Spencer. The pair has a few exceptionally evil plans for the future. Current war plans include a possible collaboration.
With influences ranging from Ben Folds, Alanis Morissette, and Liz Phair, Brendan's music is a unique blend of piano driven underpinning, with sugarcoated pop guitars and drums. Prime examples can be heard on 'Book Pressed Rose', Brendan's debut independent release. Stand out tracks include 'Sweet sixteen', which displays Brendan's first marriage of lyric and song, and 'The best you've ever had', a sad commentary on a gay man's lifestyle in the present society in America.
Have high expectations from this once reserved and inhibited teen. He's found an outlet, knows how to use it, and isn't afraid to speak his mind through song!
