Here's some more info about Brendan Rivera:


On June 12 New York native and singer-songwriter BRENDAN RIVERA will release his latest LP No Ocean In Ireland via CT-based Veggie Co. Records.

The Brooklyn-based Rivera penned and recorded his first full album, The Musician with his longtime friend turned producer Mike Kalajianin 2008. The collective, Looking Glass Warswas formed, and they began playing The Musician at clubs throughout NYC. Looking Glass Wars would go on to play east coast shows and tours with the likes of Anthony Green, Silverstein, The Starting Lineand more. The band collectively wrote and released an EP titled a Place in a Parlor before disbanding shortly after.

Not being able, or willing to slow his creative process, Rivera immediately continued writing songs for what would become his Veggie Co. Records debut, Body of Land. The album resonated with friend and vocalist Shane Told of Silverstein, and was released in Canada on Shane’s personal label, Verona Records. BRENDAN RIVERA armed with only his acoustic guitar embarked on a 2009 Fall Tour with Silverstein and A Day to Remember headlining the shows. Rivera was honored in 2008 with Looking Glass Wars and again in 2009 forBody of Land, as one of the artists featured on Absolutepunk.net’s “Absolute 100” list of up and coming artists.

In late 2010, BRENDAN RIVERA entered the studio yet again with producers Mike Kalajian and Gregory Dunn of Moving Mountains to record No Ocean in Ireland. The album features 11 songs that Rivera describes as “Irish-Americana Indie Rock.” The album showcases Rivera’s ability to pull from all of his varied influences and still create a cohesive album that is steeped in originality.

I have to say this is definitely one of my favorite albums ever. Brendan Rivera absolutely deserves to be heard by more people and what better way than on vinyl? I just recently got this beer colored vinyl and it just looks fantastic. It also goes along really well with the artwork, which is one of my favorites of any record that I own for sure. And of course the music is just incredibly beautiful. I highly recommend checking out the album stream and then ordering this record because it never gets old no matter how many times I play it through.

Pretty good, I agree... definite mumford & sons vibe. I'm into harder stuff but would still consider picking this up sometime.

I might be down for a trade...If you could share his music with some friends that'd be even better. The 2009 album "Body of Land" is available for pay what you want including free on bandcamp here:

Got a sale out of me with the discount on it. Love the record and the price drop finally convinced me to grab a physical copy as well!

Awesome thank you, I'm actually shipping it out today, sorry for the slight delay!

Everyone should follow this guy's lead and pick one up! Beer color won't be available for too much longer...
