Brendan Gallagher: Via del Fortino

Karma County front man and ARIA award winner Brendan Gallagher casts a long shadow in Australian music – over forty records in as many years, more than half as an artist.

Producer of indigenous luminaries like Jimmy Little, LJ Hill, Emma Donovan, Kutcha Edwards and Oz music icons Doc Neeson, Jeremy Oxley, Dave Mason & more, prolific songwriter, author of The Open Tuning Chord Book For Guitar, one off session guitarist for David Bowie.

August sees the release of his eighth solo work Via del Fortino, an EP recorded in Italy in late 2022.

In concert Brendo plays songs from the many albums he’s made over the years, and other artist’s songbooks – Scott Walker, Charlie Rich, Blur – good songs come from anywhere.

Oh, and he likes to tell a few yarns. Loquaciousness is his bag.
