Of the 2016 album, Brendan & the Strangest Ways:


"Brendan & the Strangest Ways sing with heart and soul on their spirited self-titled debut. Lyrics are pitch perfect as they reveal a keen talent for storytelling. The arrangements are done in just the right way with a fine mixture of Americana, folk, and a little bit of country. Rather restrained at times, the album has a conversational tone to it.

Earnest to its very core​ ... tasteful, and infinitely inviting​." -- Skope Magazine





"Dude, what are YOU doing at Pike Place?" -- Emery Carl, fellow busker
