"I also find myself experiencing that same sense of wide-open space that accompanies the quiet moments of bands like Sigur Ros"

                              - from The Equal Ground review of The Quiet Landscape (2013)

Welcome to the site of Brendan J Boyd, musician, comic book creator, writer and visual artist 

Musically, he has collaborated with Ritsuko Dalton (E-type Jazz) on the song Lovely Eyes and his song Midnight Train has been recorded by Stuart Hale

Heartland (2008)  was the start of a journey into solo recording and exploring ambient, cinematic soundscapes.  A haunting soundtrack designed to evoke a sense of solitude and desert, primarily through the use of minimalist guitar sounds, keyboards and effects.  Since then he has released multiple albums & EP's,  specialising in instrumental, ambient, chill-out and cinematic soundscapes.  His music has also appeared on compilations and has been used for documentaries by award winning photographer Randy Larcombe, Surface2Air and also for En Route/One Step at a Time Like This

His comic work, (initially self published), led to his work appearing in a variety of magazines and graphic novels (including the Tango Collection - Allen & Unwin 2009, Australian War Stories & Issue One).   His diverse range of work has included stories about romance, humour, cancer and semi auto-bio works

As an illustrator he has collaborated with Don Walker (Cold Chisel) interpreting 3 Don Walker songs and 1 Cold Chisel song as comic book stories.   The full collection appears in the graphic novel "Montage" (released in July 2012), along with other stories.  It is available in very limited release (see online store for more details)

He has also been a co-curator of and exhibited in a variety of exhibitions

At the moment he has retired from the graphic novel scene to focus on musical projects, including a new guitar based album Transient (due late 2014) 

His music also appears at  Sound Introversion Radio  (http://www.soundintroversion.com) as part of the 2014 Adelaide Festival
