Wayne Brennan & band playing "In My Hands" at the Zodiac Sessions which is held every Wednesday in Bruxelles Bar, Dublin.
Hi. My name is Wayne Brennan. Music is my life ... it's what I live and breath... I am a self-taught guitarist with a distinctive and energetic style, influences include blues, flamenco, reggae, classical guitar, country, metal and rock. I play the guitar the way the guitar asks to be played... hmmm.... and just try to be honest to myself and my own artistic creativity. When I first started playing I was big into Grunge... you know... early 90's masters like Pearl Jam... Temple of the dog etc... and then got into Thrash metal for a few years... waa waa waa waa solos etc on the lead guitar. But as the years passed I was drawn to the sweet warming sounds of the acoustic especially nylon string. I'm a singer/songwriter from Daingean in Co. Offaly. When I was young I played traditional Irish music (Tin Whistle and flute) but it was only when I got my first guitar did I really feel a connection with playing music... When I was still playing very basic guitar I got into writing poetry and so as soon as I was able to "string" chords together I began writing melodies and composing. Part of my style is due to the fact that I lived in Paris, France for 3 years soaking up the rich french culture and also because I have travelled a lot during my life. So, I was given the opportunity to hear music from different cultures which had a profound effect on me. I think if you are prepared to open your mind then your heart will lead you in the right creative direction. In Paris I played in places such as The VIP Room, and The Chesterfield Cafe on the Champs Elyses. I decided to return to Ireland to concentrate on my song writing and pursue my musical career path. My journey brings me to where I am today; ready to unveil my music to the world. My music is filled with a heartfelt passion, soul and life. There is no more I can say at this point, except don't come this far without sampling a track or two!! Enjoy...Wayne"
