Album Notes
2010 WUMB Music Fest Performer (aka Boston Folk Festival)

2009 BACHA Showcase Artist

Following 10 years in radio as host and producer at WERS and WGBH FM, Brendan Hogan has released his first full-length studio album, 'Long Night Coming'.

Hogan started his career in music at Emerson College in 1999 working for the school’s acclaimed student-run station, WERS, 88.9. Upon leaving WERS in 2002, Brendan was hired by Boston NPR-affiliate, WGBH, 89.7, to take over a popular long-running music program there.

Released in late 2009, Hogan has written and recorded his debut CD, 'Long Night Coming', featuring original roots, modern folk, and blues-based songs, as well as two familiar standards in the folk and country genres. Hogan’s work in songwriting and performing has seen him share stages with Kris Delmhorst, Geoff Muldaur, Ray Bonneville, Eilen Jewell, Les Sampou, Paul Rishell & Annie Raines, Spider John Koerner, Brooks Williams, and others, and he has recently showcased for the Boston Area Coffeehouse Association and the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference. The Boston Phoenix newspaper has called Hogan “a distinctive new musical voice”.

Less Is More
"Long Night Coming" is straight forward, heartfelt lyrics complemented by just the right amount of musical notes.  Brendan's song writing style turns the mind with elegance and grit.  Melodic vocals, nice guitar picking, some tasteful treats of accordion and slide backed up by a solid rhythm section is what you can expect from this debut CD and it won't disappoint.
