June 6, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pmNo Cover
Michael Brunnock possesses an extraordinary voice, and his song writing profound. So it’s no surprise that David Byrne (Talking Head’s) cast him to sing the role of an Irish musician on the brink of success whose voice guides Sean Penn through an emotional journey of self-discovery in the film ’This Must Be the Place’ (2012). The score by Byrne with lyrics by Will Oldham (Bonnie Prince Billy) called for a distinctive vocalist, which Brunnock is and the song ‘If it falls, it falls’ won a David di Donatello award, equivalent to the Italian Oscars!
Brunnock established his solo career when he relocated to New York City over a decade ago, having performed through the 90s in Ireland with the bands “Little Palace” & “The Van Winkles” as well as with “Dead Can Dance’s Brendan Perry”. Since then he has toured extensively in the States, opening for “The Frames” & “The Swell Season” on recent sold out American tours, and has appeared on TV shows such as FOX 5′s ‘Fearless Music’.
