Niall Brennan New Single ‘There Are No Words’ Out Today

August 30, 2021

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 song writing encompasses a wide variety of influences ranging from Bob Dylan to Steely Dan to Frank Ocean. His work has reflected these influences while retaining his own unique identity and has over the years successfully fused and crossed different genres. 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 next 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 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 single are John Boyle (Marianne Faithful) and Aonghus Ralston (The Waterboys). The second single ‘There Are No Words’ will be available on all streaming platforms from 30th August and available for download from Niall’s Bandcamp page.
