Brendan Croskerry (born 24 July 1985 St. John's) is a Canadian singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Halifax, Nova Scotia. “Superman is on Holidays”, his first commercial release, was featured on the international selling compilation albums Disco Estrella in 2007, and Supermodelo 2007. Both compilations reached number 1 in Spain, enduring a total of 8 weeks in the number 1 spot.
In 2008 he released his debut album Goodbye Harrier. The album was produced by Paulino Lorenzo, Michel Andrés, and Leroy Quintyn of the independent Spanish label Contactados Factoría Musical. He shared the stage with the Spanish artist Quique Gonzalez at the 2008 Actual Festival in Spain. He also performed at the 2008 Popkomm Festival, in Germany.
In 2012, Croskerry returned to Canada to pursue his music in the country he started in. He joined Toronto based marketing agency Ossington Creative as head composer and musical consultant for creative-commercial video and radio work. He performed at the 2013 North by North East music festival and was listed one of the "Best of the Fest" by The Huffington Post Canada.
Brendan joined Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's office as a special assistant in May 2013 focusing on communications. Brendan left city hall to return to music, and recorded a free E.P. titled Live from City Hall with producer David Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Holy Fuck) inspired by his time in the mayor's office. The promotional video for the EP included a behind the scenes look in the mayor's office moments after being stripped of power on November 18, 2013.
A full-length release, also co-produced by Newfeld is slated for early 2015.
