Album Notes
The CD, which is a recording of the release party for his solo debut, So I Do, on June 10, 2007, at The Living Room in New York City, almost didn’t happen.
The show was recorded with no intent to release it to the public. It was only after the death of legendary R&B performer, Moe Holmes, on February 12, 2008, that the wheels began to turn. Holmes, who was the leader of The Voices of East Harlem and who toured with Ike and Tina Turner, Jimi Hendrix and Santana in the 1960s, was still active in the New York music scene up until his death. When Brunnock saw him sing for the first time, he was spellbound; Holmes’s performance moved him to tears. The two became friends and at the release party for So I Do, Holmes was invited onstage to sing on Brunnock’s phenomenal ballad “Sensation.”
The resulting song from this collaboration was so special to Brunnock that, after Holmes's death, he began to work to get it released to as wide an audience as he could, thus resulting in Live in New York. The disc features 12 songs, mostly selections from So I Do, with four previously-unreleased songs, including "Sensation." It also includes rare live performances of "Born Again" and "Niagara Falls," which are not generally played at acoustic shows as they benefit from the full band.
“Moe grew up singing gospel. He brought that authentic passion into everything he sang. We both had a residency on Bleeker Street and Moe would join me after his set. He could take the lead or riff over my vocals. He had a sharp wit. It was an honor to have shared the stage with Moe. He was an amazing performer. I learned lot from him and felt a deep respect and friendship.”

Michael Brunnock established his solo career
when he relocated to New York City a decade
ago, having performed through the 90s in
Ireland with the bands Little Palace and 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 and The Swell Season on recent sold
out American tours, has shared a stage with
many big names, Foy Vance, Paddy Casey,
Mundy, Andy Irvine, The Saw Doctors, Declan O'
Rourke, and Ari Hest, to name a few. His talent
holds its own with any caliber of musician and
he knows how to get the best out of his playing
experience with other artists. Michael has
appeared on TV shows such as FOX 5's
‘Fearless Music'.
Brunnock, though a native Irishman, does not perform traditional Irish
music, but rather his sound can be described as folk rock meets
singer/songwriter. He often employs Irish themes or traditional
instruments which gives his music an Irish flair.
Brunnock possesses an extraordinary voice, and his songs mine the
profound. So it’s not surprising that David Byrne 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 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.
Michael won the prestigious award for Best Original Song at the 2012 David
di Donatello Italian Acadamy Awards. The winning song ‘If It Falls, it Falls’
is from the movie soundtrack for This Must be the Place [2012].
Brunnock released his new album, The Orchard, a collection of gorgeously
crafted songs featuring guest performances from Glen Hansard (Swell
Season), Julia Stone, Ari Hest and Joe Sumner. The album is Brunnock’s
third since Live in New York (2009) and So I Do (2007). Mixed by triple
Grammy winner Patrick Dillett.
"Michael Brunnock's voice simply soars. His performances and song
writing absolutely wowed our audiences in Boston. I am keenly awaiting
more from this intriguing artist." - Brian O'Donovan, 89.7 WGBH, Boston's
NPR Station
“…with a masterful skill, Brunnock takes the idea of a singer/songwriter to
another level” - Alice Goodwin, Goldenplec
“With ‘The Orchard’, Michael Brunnock has made not just an album, but
one of the strongest personal statements one is likely to hear ,this-or any
other- year.” - Oliver P.Sweeney. – HotPress
“[He has] an absolutely gorgeous quality to [his] voice. It's beautiful. It's really soft
and gentle but it rips your heart apart. I have to say it's gorgeous.” - Edwina Grace,
The Edwina Grace Show, KCLR
