Over the last 25 years Conor Brady has forged a reputation as one of the great Irish guitar players. When not plying his chops in legendary outfits such as Deaf Actor, The Blades, The Revenants and Jerry Fish & The Mudbug Club, among others, his fretwork has been much in demand by the likes of The Corrs, The Commitments and Terence Trent D’arby. Brady’s trademark sound could be described as a blend of post-punk angularity and classic blues, funk and country styles – though his flexibility as a player, capable of turning his hand to almost any genre, is arguably his main strength.
