As an alt-pop dreamboat, Brendan Maclean started his career at the piano. With a vocal quality that will soften the hardest of hearts, the last few months have seen a stunning direction change for Maclean. Stepping away from the piano, the Sydneysider has drawn on his love of crisp Swedish production reminiscent of Robyn and Röyksopp; instant classics built on anthemic hooks, mammoth choruses and some of the finest bridges you will ever hear.
Having been signed to Universal Music Publishing Group, Maclean has written quietly in studios alongside acts like Megan Washington, Ngaiire and Sam Cromack of Ball Park Music. This exclusive Melbourne show will meld together Maclean’s creative journey thus far; it’s simply Maclean, the songs and our theatre’s stunning acoustics.
Brendan Maclean is a rarity within Australian music: A full voiced, dynamic singer possessing an incomparable performance style accompanied by an educated songwriter’s mind. As The Age put it, ‘he’s an absolute complete package.’
