DD139 – BRENDAN SMOOTHER – STRETCHER BEARER

 

BRENDAN SMOOTHER’s STRETCHER BEARER, from the PARAMEDIC SUICIDE EP, is an ANZAC tribute with a heritage style and was written by Brendan to honour what he does as a profession. A paramedic of 20 years, as well as having been an army medic, Brendan is well equipped to get inside of this topic and bring out the emotion of this subject in song. As Brendan explains, “Something inside of me took over, I feel very humbled by our military history and wanted to do it justice by honouring the heritage of our medics. Coupled with a finger picked chord progression that I had been waiting for years to use on something special. The result is one that I am very proud of.”

Recorded at Love Street Studios on the Gold Coast, Brendan’s talents are enhanced with touches of fine musicianship from LAWRIE MINSON, PIXIE JENKINS, SCOTT HILLS and JAMIE SULLIVAN.
