An Australian Folk-Rock/Roots artist born, raised and based in Brisbane. Brendan the Bard draws stories from his own world and weaves them into a rich musical tapestry - from heart-splintering ballads to body-swaying shanties to soft finger-picked little ditties to rustic rock and roll.

He delivers powerful songs with vulnerable lyrics that aim to tap into the core of the listener's human experience. As his moniker suggests, Brendan is a journeyman wordsmith and his performance craft has been tempered over the years by the stages, streets and beer-laden pub floors of Brisbane.

Since 2017 The Bard is rarely seen performing orginal music without being accompanied by his band. Boasting the ferocious finger-busting piano stylings of Callum Craig and the curley-haired surgeon of percussion Conor O'brien on the kit; they always leave audiences sated with their energetic and down-to-earth performances.



Soupy LaRue is a very important idiot.

He is like a force of nature; impossible to predict, incredibly destructive, and totally oblivious.

Soupy LaRue may or may not be of this earth. He doesn't experience time the same way as you and I and he might be in two places at once.

Soupy LaRue often stumbles into pivotal moments throughout history, fundamentally shaping our destiny. He has no knowledge of this.

It might seem that Soupy LaRue is a part of some great universal organisation, or a higher power, but no one has claimed him, and he claims no affiliation to any particular group.

Soupy LaRue is not evil or sadistic, but he is a little selfish and fairly inconsiderate. He bears no ill will towards any other living being, although, he sometimes gets frustrated and behaves... inappropriately.

Soupy LaRue is a very important idiot.



Liam Bryant is a writer of endearing, emotive and eminent songs and loves to perform with his ever faithful acoustic stompbox named Stompy and a foot tambourine named Tamby.

He also loves to perform with a group of extremely talented and devilishly good-looking musicians known as The Handsome Devils.

The Handsome Devils bring great power, dynamic and space to Liam Bryant’s acoustic and classical guitar stylings and soothingly melodic vocals.

If you like music that makes you feel something in a handsome way then the internet has lead you to the right place!
