Brendan Maclean, Actor, musician, Radio host
While you may know Brendan Maclean from his radio and television presenting on Triple J and Channel V, or from his numerous writing credits, he remains at heart a songwriter.

Having released his debut record White Canvas in 2010, Maclean is picking up some groundswell with his new song Stupid, performing alongside Megan Washington, Claire Bowditch, Lanie Lane, Kate Miller-Heidke and even Savage Garden.

This year Brendan has been working with producer Paul Mac (Silverchair / The Dissociatives) and has funded his studio time entirely through crowd-funding efforts. He will also be appearing in the role of Klipspringer in the upcoming Baz Luhrmann re-make of The Great Gatsby.
