Brennan was born on 27 September 1973 in Carlisle, Cumbria to Una and Francis Brennan. He has two brothers, Kevin and Marc, and two sisters, Julie and Rebecca. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma twice, first aged nine and then again aged 15.
Brennan had previously wanted to play for his local football team Carlisle United. However despite trials and visits from club scouts, he was turned down because, at just 5"4, he was considered too small. However, he captained the county football team at under-14 and under-16 levels.
911 were formed in 1995 when Jimmy Constable and Spike Dawbarn met on the ITV late-night dance show The Hit Man and Her and soon decided to form a band. After meeting Brennan, they became a trio and were soon signed to Virgin Records. They then released their debut single "Night to Remember", a cover of the classic Shalamar tune, in 1996. 911 had huge success during their time in the charts, releasing a total of 14 singles and four albums, including a Greatest Hits album. The band announced their split in 2000.
In 2005, 911 reunited and took part in Hit Me, Baby, One More Time. They were successful in gaining a place in the final, where they performed their signature song "Bodyshakin'" and S Club 7's hit "Don't Stop Movin'". Although 911 did not win the competition, the show resulted in a renewed interest in the band. Brennan regularly reunited with the other members of 911 to perform in gigs up and down the UK.
After 911's split in 2000, Brennan continued songwiting whilst pursuing an acting career. In 2001, he had a cameo appearance in an episode of Heartbeat. In 2006, for the fourth consecutive year, he performed as Peter Pan in a Christmas pantomime.
