Brendan, a classically trained saxophonist and composer, discusses how he transitioned from a love of bebop jazz to house music. He reflects on his perseverance and success as a multi-faceted musician, especially in view of the pandemic, when lockdown conditions forced the performing arts to shut down. He also considers what the authenticity of music is in relation to simplicity and commercial appeal. And . . . we feature some of his composition and saxophone playing!
