WUMB Music Mix with Brendan Hogan

Weekdays 7:00 pm


Somewhere in America, artists are still making records.

There is still a place for experimentation, taking chances, and leaving in mistakes; for lyrical imagery and themes that tie songs together.

Brendan Hogan’s latest solo album (his second), SilverQuick, was recorded in a home studio using a single microphone, a few guitars, a couple old tube amps, and a lot of experimentation with ordinary (and extraordinary) household objects, analog and digital synths, and a lot of delays.

In late-2009, Hogan wrote and recorded his debut CD, Long Night Coming, 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 since its release has seen him share stages with Kris Delmhorst, Eilen Jewell, Ray Bonneville, Spider John Koerner, and others in the Northeast US and beyond, and the popular NPR radio show Car Talk featured Hogan's song "Big Black Car" on its program in late 2011. In the same year, WUMB listeners voted Hogan as one of the Top 100 artists of the year. The Boston Globe newspaper has called SilverQuick “elusive, transcendent, mercurial Americana".

Over the past decade Brendan Hogan has hosted roots radio programs on WERS and WGBH. He currently hosts, programs, and produces "Dark Was the Night" on WUMB Radio in Boston.
