Irish native Brendan Loughrey has released To Those Who Fell, an album that features some of the most poignant, significant songs of Ireland’s unrelenting struggle for sovereignty against British Imperialism. Brendan began his music career at an early age and soon found himself following in the footsteps of the artists who inspired him, Christy Moore and Tommy Makem, on the road performing in just about every pub, club and venue in Ireland.
Prompted to cross the Atlantic by a prestigious position as the house musician at the famous Seanachie Irish Pub in Nashville, Tennessee, Brendan quickly attracted the attention of other Irish venues across the United States.
Traveling to Chicago, Brendan formed the powerful Celtic rock trio Bluestack, releasing 6 CDs including the popular Last Set of the Night. In 2012 Brendan returned to his roots as a solo acoustic performer, a platform that better allowed him to deliver his unique brand of emotionally charged, passionate Irish music.
To Those Who Fell features five of Brendan’s original songs as well as fifteen of Ireland’s most treasured and emotive songs recorded as they were written and intended to be, timeless stories of truth, rebellion and bravery.
Brendan’s powerhouse vocals and stunning guitar work coupled with his pure, unaltered recording style allow the listener to feel the emotion behind the song, stripped bare of anything other than the inherent purity of the song itself.
