Album Notes
Brendan O'Sullivan launches his new album ‘Took a Notion”
After twenty years in the business as a member of several successful musical collaborations, Brendan has finally put together his own CD with the help of some well seasoned musos. Mixing Irish Traditional and World music styles, including new compositions and old favourites, ‘Took a Notion’ provides a variety of tastes for the listener to savour.
Brendan has toured the world with several different groups including Jack L, Stockton’s Wing and Rea Garvey from German mega-band Reamonn– encompassing different styles and performed in such places as the Sydney Opera House and to 160,000 people at the All-Ireland National Hurling and Football Championships.

Coming from a musical family, Brendan has performed in countries as far afield as Zimbabwe, Thailand, India, Japan, New Zealand and Australia as well as throughout Ireland and Europe. He has recorded on numerous albums including with the contemporary traditional group Gráda signed to Compass records and has just completed his debut solo album ‘Took and Notion’ which will be released later this year. When not touring, Brendan is based in the picturesque Kerry region of Ireland where he has established himself in the vibrant local music scene.
