Tim Brennan


More than 25 years ago, Brennan bought a bass on his way to his first band practice. Since then he has credits on a dozen CDs and counting, played hundreds of shows, operated a small record label, was offered a job at SubPop, invited to be the touring bass player for the All-American Rejects, written copy and articles for record labels and No Depression, and has generally had a lot of fun playing music. In 2009, he settled into Charleston with his wife and kids. For his day job, he sells aircraft. Nights he wants to wander the bars in search of new and good. Brennan's blog will draw upon his musical experiences and offer his views on what is happening in the local music scene.
