Currently Brendan performs as a solo act. Brendan oversees a small publishing company, Cambren Music, created to better manage and promote his growing catalog of works, which are sometimes described as “Jazz Fusion”. Brendan’s style has evolved over the years, and his need for “self-expression” always trumps the stereotypical jazz genre. This can be felt in his music, which is deeply soulful, but also fun and easy to listen to. Brendan enjoys creating music that is energetic, full of rhythm, modern, and fun to jam along with. Ultimately, he is a performing artist, and his music is always born with the motivation and intent that he will perform it live.
