Brendan Hogan is a Boston area singer-songwriter and guitar player with a foot in the blues. He’s a 20 year veteran in Boston public radio, most notably with WUMB since 2011. His musical touchstones are the 50s/60s folk revival, classic blues, and Dylan-esque songwriters.
Hummingbird Syndicate is a collective of like-minded musicians, led by singer/songwriters Lynn Shipley and Jon Macey. On stage and in the studio they shift deftly between a dynamic power pop jangle and a softer, folk/rock shimmer. Most songs feature three- and four-part harmonies and a 1960s/70s vibe, blending sunny Laurel Canyon folk and East Coast urban pop with an edgy dash of early ‘70s British rock. All of this is delivered with a modern twist by veteran musicians drawing on myriad musical and cultural influences.
