Hot Without Glasses is my pet project, distracting me from the folk music that I normally write. Due to a finger injury on my left hand early this summer, I couldn't record the folk album that I had planned, and so I started learning how to tap on the guitar using my unharmed right hand. Thus Hot Without Glasses was born. Snacktime, as the name would suggest, is a very brief EP, with 3 songs of less than 4 minutes each. Hopefully it will offer a taste of what is to come on future recordings.

Part of a balanced breakfast.

My name is Brendan, and I make EPs.

I plan on releasing some more tunes some time in 2017.

As of right now, I can't play any of this live, but I am working on it. Slowly.
