Brendan Hogan wrote and recorded his debut CD, 'Long Night Coming' in 2009, featuring original roots, modern folk, and blues-based songs, as well as two familiar standards in the folk and country genres. His work in songwriting and performing has seen him share stages with Kris Delmhorst, Cliff Eberhardt, Slaid Cleaves, Geoff Muldaur, Ray Bonneville, Eilen Jewell, Les Sampou, Paul Rishell & Annie Raines, Spider John Koerner, Brooks Williams, and others, and he has performed at the WUMB Music Fest (aka Boston Folk Festival), and showcased for the Boston Area Coffeehouse Association and the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference. The Boston Phoenix newspaper has called Hogan "a distinctive new musical voice".
