Originally from North Yorkshire, England and now comfortably ensconced in Alberta, Canada Brendan Rothwell is one of that exclusive group of contemporary jazz musicians who as a bass player has made his mark as a lead artist. In fact it all began to happen for Brendan in 2016 when his first album ‘Time On My Hands’ was picked by radio in the USA with the first single, the decidedly sultry ‘This Is The Love’, finding its way onto several smooth jazz charts in the summer of 2017.
The second single from ‘Time On My Hands’, ‘Smooth’, was serviced to radio in 2018 and less than twelve months later Rothwell came roaring back with his second solo release ‘Sentiment’. It included both the intensely rhythmic ‘Keep On Keeping On’ and the wonderfully chilled ‘Think Of You’ that quickly became a firm Smooth Jazz Therapy favourite.
Fast forward to 2022 where his third album ‘Destiny’ is slated for global release on July 1. Check back here soon for a complete review of this highly anticipated new collection.
