Originally from the small sugar-growing town of Ingham in North Queensland, Brendan left his recording studio of 6 years, ‘Tropic Records’ located in Townsville and migrated South to the much cooler climate of Melbourne in 2006.
With over 20 years experience in the music industry, Brendan has worked with hundreds of independent bands and solo artists as both a sound engineer and professional musician. To date he has produced over 40 albums, EP’s and singles for independent release in just about every musical genre, many of which have enjoyed radio-play in Australia and overseas.
On top of his production credits, Brendan has engineered countless recording projects in both his own studios and others in Queensland and Victoria.
A talented keyboard player, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Brendan has won many awards as a solo artist including the prestigious Aristocrat Entertainer of The Year award in 2000 among many other various awards and completed a 4 month national tour as part of the Brian Young Show in 1999.
To add to his experience in sound and production, Brendan acquired a Diploma in Technical Production completed at SAE College, Melbourne in 2006. Brendan is also a Technical Producer on radio with the ABC working with their International broadcasting service, Radio Australia.
In 2009, Brendan opened his own Melbourne based recording facility, Bounce Recording Studios located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. The boutique music production facility offers professional music recording, pre & post-production services and great coffee.
Bounce Studios have also partnered with experienced producer songwriter and song-coach, Lyndon Wesley to also offer services such as song development, artist development and extensive pre-production.
Brendan enjoys working with artists that have the drive and determination to tackle a career in today’s music industry and seeks to draw the best out of them in the studio to create a sound they are proud to promote
