Session drummer available for touring, remote tracking, and/or studio dates. Extensive touring experience (most notably with Between Friends, and Twin XL) as well as access to a multitude of gear and recording equipment (primarily multi-tracking for live drums). Able to write and replicate drum parts for compositions of varying genres.

With years of touring and studio experience under my belt, I offer availability for live performances, rehearsals, studio dates, and remote tracking of live drums for your song or record.
While I excel particularly in rock drumming, my most notable work has primarily been rooted in pop and electronic music. With that said, in addition to my collection of acoustic drum kits and recording equipment, I'm also in possession of various electronic percussive instruments, including but not limited to the SPD-SX, RT-30K and RT-30HR acoustic triggers. My touring experience began with the 2015 Vans Warped Tour drumming with False Puppet, then completing VWT the following year in 2016 playing for The Heirs, whom I stuck with throughout their name change to the now more notable 'Between Friends.' After recording 'We Just Need Some Time Together,' and several more runs with The Heirs/Between Friends (Riptide Music Festival, SXSW, opening slots for Walk the Moon, and an American tour with The Big Pink), I went on to play for my now current employer 'Twin XL.'
Since the beginning of 2019 I have completed tours in support of Fitz and the Tantrums, Lovely the Band, The Maine, and music festivals such as 97X Next Big Thing, City of Trees, and El Dorado Music Fest with Walk the Moon.
Between tours I've invested into expanding my home studio/drum room for remote tracking and making records.

    Brennan is incredible! One of my favorite drummers in the world, and a beautiful human to boot. So reliable, so professional, and so damn CREATIVE! The timeline for the project was a week and he got stuff to me the next day. 10/10 would highly recommend - Brennan on the drums will completely transform your music in the best possible way.

    Brennan is a fantastic drummer with an incredible intuitive musicality. His drumming style is always creative and nuanced as well as the way he mixes them. I always look forward to hearing what ideas he has on his own and how he interprets notes sent back to him.
    It's always a joy to work with Brennan.

    Brennan is an absolute animal behind drums. I've worked with plenty of great drummers, but he's definitely at the top of the list. Consistency, tempo, everything. He's also an amazing person, always willing to do whatever it is that needs done so things can run on time, and always down for anything that may need to change. A true gentleman and scholar of the drum world.
