Brendan O'Shea
Brendan O'Shea
Originally from Killarney in the South-West of Ireland, singer-songwriter Brendan O’Shea moved to the United States in the late 90’s. Since then, he has become a veteran of New York City’s songwriter scene and released three albums which have garnered praise from critics and press around the world.

Irish music magazine Hot Press rated his 2nd record Be Here Still an 8 1/2 out of 10 and XM Radio’s Mike Morrone called it one of his “Favorite records of the year.”

Brendan’s singing can also be heard in such films as Ron Howard’s Academy Award nominated film Backdraft and in the wildly successful Karen Gehres documentary Begging Naked. His songs are also featured on ABC’s docudrama Boston Med.

Brendan has shared stages with The Frames, The Swell Season, Glen Hansard, Cowboy Junkies, Elliott Smith, Loudan Wainright, and Interpol as well as other innovative contemporaries. In addition to headlining his own shows in both the United States and Europe, he has embarked on four tours of Japan with the Trinity Dance Troupe and is currently collaborating with Colin Dunne and Mike Kirkpatrick on new works for the company.

In 2007 Brendan became a founding member of Fairplay Collective, a unique endeavor in which songwriters come together to support and promote each other’s individual projects as independent artists. In 2008 Brendan, Pete Olshansky and Karl Geary (Sin-e) began hosting a Sunday night concert series in NYC’s East Village called the Scratcher Sessions which features musicians from around the world.

Brendan has just finished production on his fourth full length release to follow up from his 2011 release Songs From A Tenement.
