Brendan Orchard started playing guitar at the age of 12 and hasn't looked back since. Brendan was raised in a musical home near Dayton, Ohio by a mother who was classically trained on piano, and a father who grew up listening to and playing drums along with classic rock. Upon winning his first guitar at an amusement park, Brendan started taking lessons. By high school, Brendan had formed a rock band and began gigging around the greater Cincinnati and Columbus areas. Brendan attended Cedarville University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music (2019). Brendan currently resides in Nashville, TN and stays busy with touring, session work, and playing a variety of gigs in town with different artists and bands. In addition to performing, Brendan is an experienced teacher and has taught many students of different levels in various musical styles.
