Brendan O’Hara and the Rescue
(Roots Rock Soul ) “Like a modern-day troubadour, Brendan combines his ample musical gifts with a compelling stage presence, incisive lyrics, simple hymns and the occasional joke, political commentary or honest moment of public self-reflection, weaving tales and verses of bliss and woe for live audiences across Miami… ”
– Ocean Drive
“The man not only knows the strength and the beauty behind a melody, he shows how such great strength and beauty can burrow to the core of our soul. Make that hot-buttered, blue-eyed soul, as much Isaac Hayes in his ballad days as Sinatra at his most circumspect. Or, to be rudely blunt, kinda like the cracker equivalent of John Legend, had the soul stirrer spent his nights in indie land rather than church. With a little of Waits’ way with a throwback, The Boss’ innate ability to bleed sweat and Randy Newman’s classicist approach to songcraft thrown into the mix just for fun.”
Brendan O’Hara…accompanied by a wide array of musical instruments, artist and epic awesomeness… the latest incarnation…The Rescue…Keith Cooper on Saxaphone, Ralf Valencia on Bass, and Armando Lopez on Drums.
