Seán Brady - recent news and developments

 

Writing and recording. My Hollywood debut. Jackie's Army. 2 new albums released. Heading to Sweden.

Jackies Army - The Irish world cup song.I returned to live gigs as soon as the restrictions were lifted and it's wonderful to be back!

Recent bookings include private functions in Essex, Oxon, Chislehurst, Milton Keynes, Broadstairs, Hertford and earlier this week, Orsett Hall in Essex.

This Thursday I'm heading up to Stevenage on Thursday and across to Chessington on Saturday.

They're both private/closed functions but I'm hoping to announce a couple of open gigs on here shortly.

My band and I did our first wedding since January 2020 back in July and it's wonderful to be back playing with my fellow musicians once again.

I'm pleased to report the release in August of 2 new albums, 'I Saw the light' and 'If Nothing Changes'.

Both are available on all the usual platforms. 

My band and I are pleased to report that we've been booked to perform a series of dates in Lapland (The Swedish section) for January and February 2022.

I'll provide details of the actual resort and venue location on here nearer the time.

 

St Patrick's week this year was most peculiar and was the first time I haven't performed live on the big day since I was 18 years old.

I did several live streaming shows on Zoom and similar platforms throughout the week including Saturday March 20th.

I'm very grateful to all of you for the bookings and I enjoyed meeting you all in cyberspace via Dublin, Liverpool, Glasgow and Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

Here's a sampler video featuring excerpts from of one of my live streaming shows.

Enquiries for St Patrick's week 2022 are coming in quick and fast so please get in touch soon if you're looking to book me for that busy period.

Fees and FAQs for future bookings can be found on my singagram page.

My 1990's tribute to the late, great Jackie Charlton's magnificent contributions to the then, incredible achievements of the Irish national soccer team, has been one of my most played tracks across all streaming platforms since his sad demise.

May he rest in peace.

A true legend in his lifetime and beyond.

Last year I did some 'ghost' vocals for a couple of songs that feature in a recently released film starring Patrick Bergin and Vanessa Redgrave.

The film 'Finding You' is now on worldwide release.

If you get along to catch it at the cinema, stay for the credits at the end, you hopefully should be able to see my name listed for at least a tenth of a nano second!

The Bojo Song (Ballad of Boris Johnson)

To coincide with the 'Thatcher Song' anniversary single release, I wrote, recorded and released a little ditty about our current Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

The current version of the track is available via all the usual streaming and download platforms.

Working with Riverdance. 3 x singles and a brand new compilation album released during lockdown.

Seán Brady and the cast of Riverdance.

My band and I returned back in January 2020 from a hectic but mega fun packed series of corporate gigs across the globe.

Little did we all know of the looming pandemic that would soon affect all of our lives in such a collosal way.

It was a fabulous tour conducted at breakneck speed and involved long haul flights galore from Singapore to Las Vegas, including many failed attempts to resist the temptations of the incredible buffet meals on offer at 5 star hotels! it was without doubt, an experience of a lifetime and simply wonderful.

We shared the gigs throughout with a full cast of Riverdance, many with whom we shared meals, jokes, funny stories, soundchecks and rehearsals with throughout. 

These remarkably talented dancers had both the manners and  personalities to match their expertise on stage.

It was an honour to share the same billing with them.

I was delighted to see that a cover version of a song I wrote back in the 90's 'Never too old to love', has been released again on a 10 cd box set from Foster and Allen.

My often covered song 'De Valera' continues to be one of my most played tracks across the platforms. A YouTube version is here, which includes the lyrics.

'The Thatcher Song' is currently the most streamed song of mine on Spotify and Apple Music. Here's one of the YouTube versions.


If you'd like to buy it in CD version or any other of my several hard copy albums, you can get them via my shop.

Special hello to my followers in Irish America, several of them contact me regularly and I'm delighted to see that my songs continue to get regular plays on the Irish music stations in Boston, New York and Chicago.

 

It's brilliant to have the fans back at football.

I'm managing to get along to a lot of the games (gigs permitting) and we seem to be emerging as a force to be reckoned with at the moment, amongst the play off challengers.

We've already played several of the top teams and fared pretty well against most of them except Fulham.

We're hitting form of late with great wins at Barnsley and Sheffield while managing to bag 3 home points against Bristol City and last weekend beating Stoke City in an enthralling 2-1 tussle after coming back from going 1 down.

The den was in full voice and afterwards the celebratory singing could be heard all the way along the route to Surrey Quays station.

COYL!
