Vancouver artist Pennan Brae draws his inspiration from the likes of Elton John, Muddy Waters, BB King, the Stooges and the Kinks. A singer, songwriter, guitarist, and filmmaker, Brae is a true storyteller, no matter what medium he uses to tell his tale. His latest single, ‘The Love That I Got’, is an ode to the human condition, and the artist transcends eras with his guitar led rock.
Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Pennan Brae is right up there alongside such classic rock and blues storytelling songwriters as Elton John, Muddy Waters, BB. King, and Elmore James. The guitarist is also a screenwriter and filmmaker, and loves to poke fun at and celebrate the sound of the 80s. His latest single, ‘Crashland’, is the lead track from his album, ‘The Astronot’, which accompanies his film of the same name.
Pennan Brae’s sound is steeped in the sound of classic American rock and blues, storytellers such as Muddy Waters, BB King, and Elmore James. He’s also influenced by the likes of Elton John, and the sounds of the 80s: in fact he describes himself as the kind of rocker who “travels back in time yet remains unmistakably contemporary”. He builds huge rock songs, based on three or four chords, and gives them a timeless classic quality, turning humour, nostalgia, pleasure and pain into intense pop-rock and piano-driven ballads.
