About Brendan McMahon

Brendan, originally hailing from Adelaide, is a singer/songwriter that currently resides in Melbourne, Australia.

Brendan discovered his love of music from the early age of ten but it wasn't until his adult years that he started nurturing his unique songwriting ability to tell a story through song. The narrative feel on each of Brendan's songs often take the audience on a musical journey where the genre of music never remains the same. From Country Rock to Blues and Roots and even moments of Pop, you will be pleasantly surprised at what this singer / songwriter has to offer.

It is through Brendan's wide collaborative experiences and involvement in the music world that eventually inspired him to release his first solo album. Brendan says, "It was a lazy Saturday in December 2014 when I picked up my acoustic guitar and started strumming a few chords... about 60 minutes later the song Morris was complete. Morris was the first track I wrote for my first solo album" .

Brendan released his first 2 solo albums 'Falling To Earth' and 'Marker 7-58' under the band name 'Satellite Gods' and in doing so, was fortunate enough to have collaborated with a bunch of renowned musicians including: Peter Maslen (Boom Crash Opera), Jason Vorherr, Bob Spencer (The Angels), Dave Leslie (Baby Animals), Simon Hosford, Wilbur Wilde (Ol'55), Danny Spencer (Jimmy Barnes), just to name a few.

In 2017, Brendan's passion for songwriting was further expressed through his release of 'On This Fine Occasion, an album that received rave reviews both locally and overseas. At around the same time, the album 'About Joe' was released specifically for the US market.

The topic and tone of Brendan's music often draws upon personal experience with people, travelling, the elements of nature and everyday life. His unique take on storytelling through music takes the listener on a personal journey where the lyrics inspire and ignite emotion. Brendan says, "I dream a lot of my song ideas. I had quite a long break from the music space and then in late 2013, I wrote the first track for my first solo album, a track called Morris. After I finished Morris I made a promise to myself that I’d capture as many of the song ideas that came to me as I could. This seemed to open a door for me and I had a flood of ideas start to flow and quite a lot of them in dreams."

Brendan is an artist that refuses to be labelled which is evident in the music produced thus far. The eclectic mix of rock, folk, blues, country and even pop across his body of work to date is genre-defying. However, though Brendan songs vary in genre, there lies a distinct style of music that is prevalent across all his albums, a style that embraces a country rock feel consisting of storytelling, solid guitar riffs and infectious beats.

Hey everyone
Just thought I'd share the video clip for the first single from my upcoming 4th album. We filmed the clip by a beautiful river in country Victoria, Australia. The weather was kind to us on the day of filming so we were able to get some great ariel footage of the surroundings. Check out the video on the YouTube link below.

Hey Everyone

Wishing you all a very happy New Year

A quick note of thanks... I'm very humbled by the amount of support and emails I receive from my music fans all over the world... your messages of support really mean a lot to me.

A bit of clarification firstly... I have changed my profile name from Satellite Gods to my name... Brendan McMahon. I released my first 2 albums under Satellite Gods thinking I'd put a band together under that name... a couple of years I decided that I really wanted to move forward as a solo act so hence the change.

FYI... I have just uploaded a new track called "Mother" (from my third album) which is a very personal song for me as you'll no doubt understand if you get a chance to have a listen... I wrote this one a few years ago in a melancholic moment and needless to say I shed a few tears over my guitar that night.

You can also listen to my full third album via my website... link or on Spotify under Brendan McMahon... don't forget to follow me on Spotify and my website so that you get all the updates on my music... my 4th album will be out in a couple of months so you'll be able to have a listen then.


All the best
Love and luck
Brendan
