Niall Brennan is a singer songwriter/musician who has been gigging and working in music from his hometown of Dublin City, Ireland for over twenty-five years.
Niall has a unique vocal style that is earthy, raw, and soulful. His songwriting encompasses a wide variety of influences ranging from Bob Dylan to Mike Scott to Frank Ocean.
He was formerly the frontman and principal songwriter with The Prescriptions who made two albums and an E.P. A ‘best of’ compilation of this work will be released this year.
After The Prescriptions folded Niall remained an active working musician playing solo gigs and continuing to write songs but it wasn’t until he reconnected with old friend Gavin Ralston at a gig that the Something Glorious E.P. was born.
Gavin and Niall had both played music growing up together in their earliest bands The Close and Silverwood Blues Band. The E.P. was almost finished when Gavin tragically passed away after a long battle with cancer.
This music is dedicated to him and stands as a testimony to his brilliance.
Another long- time friend and solo star in his own right Brendan Tallon subsequently stepped in and helped Niall finish the E.P.
Other musicians who play on the songs are Aonghus Ralston, John Boyle, Frank McGing (Woodtown Sound) and a special guest appearance on The Other End Of Your Dreams by Steve Wickham of The Waterboys.
The full E.P.will be available on all streaming platforms from 23rd of January, and available for download from Niall’s Bandcamp page.
