Brush Sheils

Brush SheilsBrendan “Brush” Shiels has been in the music business for over thirty years. He began his career in the mid-sixties with The Uptown Band and shortly after he played in a band along with thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott, teaching him to play the bass guitar in the process.

He then formed the legendary rock group Skid Row, with guitar supremo Gary Moore. Skid Row who signed to CBS Records were once tipped for major stardom, releasing two critically acclaimed albums, Skid Row in 1970 and 34 Hours in 1971 and touring America and Europe. Despite regular line-up changes, the group continued to survive into the late 1970’s before Brush decided to call it a day and to concentrate on a solo career.

He was an immediate success as a solo artist and continues to charm audiences up and down the country with his energy charged live shows and humorous observations of the ordinary, everyday aspects of life in modern Ireland. His version of “The Fields of Athenry” was a huge hit a few years ago and he regularly records both original songs and his own unique interpretations of well known tunes.

With his quick-fire delivery, hilarious monologues on topical issues and incisive wit, Brush has been a much sought-after guest and panellist on TV and Radio shows over the years. He is a regular guest on shows like the Late Late Show and Joe Duffy’s LiveLine.

In recent year’s there have been calls for Brush to take a leaf out of Dana’s book and run for the Presidency! Brush, however, has not yet declared his interest – after all, it’s a long way from Skid Row to Aras an Uachtaran. The country could certainly expect “all kinds of everything” with Brush installed in the highest office in the land!

A rare talent and one of the few all-round entertainers – there are very few people who could be described as showbiz legends – Brush Shiels is surely one of them!
