Brendan Colin Charles Hill (born 27 March 1970 in London, England) is an English-born American, best known as the drummer and original member for the jam band Blues Traveler.

History[edit]

Brendan Hill is one of the original members of Blues Traveler. In 1983, while attending Princeton High School in Princeton, New Jersey, Hill met harmonica player John Popper, and they formed Blues Band. This band played mostly at parties and saw numerous bassists and guitarists come and go. In 1987, with the addition of Chan Kinchla on guitar and Bobby Sheehan on bass, they renamed themselves "Blues Traveler".

After graduating from Princeton High School, Brendan (along with John and Bobby) enrolled in The New School for Social Research to study music.

Hill currently lives on Bainbridge Island, Washington, and owns a retail marijuana store.[1]

Side project[edit]

In his spare time, Brendan is also a drummer for the band Stolen Ogre. Brendan was involved in the formation of this band with H.O.R.D.E. buddy Michael McMorrow and still plays with them as his schedule permits, but Ogre does have a permanent drummer and tours without Hill.
