Melbourne-based songwriter Brendan Welch has been writing and recording original music for more than a decade, with his first EP ‘The Unbeat’ from 2005 receiving national radio play and leading to a tour with Paul Kelly. His first single ‘Burn Away’ was featured in the classic Australian TV series ‘Love My Way’.
This was followed up with 2007′s EP ‘That Ghost’ which also received national radio play and a dedicated following among songwriters and music lovers as well as shows with Tim Rodgers, The Sleepy Jackson and Something For Kate among others. ‘The Gleaner’ was one of the most beautiful and accomplished records of 2009 – the album, produced by Paul Dempsey, was featured in The Age’s EG Magazine as one of the top ten releases of that year. More recently, Brendan provided original songs for the acclaimed Australian TV drama ‘The Slap’ and collaborated with Australian hip hop artist Drapht on his upcoming album ‘7 Mirrors.’
2016 will see the release of a long gestating follow-up collection of songs, produced by Nick Huggins featuring musicians from Rolling Blackouts CF and Cash Savage’s Last Drinks along with backing vocals from the Brown sisters (Banoffee / Otouto) being released exclusively through Little Lake Records on the 19th of August with a vinyl pressing and official Album launch to be announced.
