Portrait of Brendan Maclean

Brendan Maclean

After training with the NSW Drama Company and under NIDA practitioner Kate Gaul, Brendan’s career kicked off when triple j offered him the chance to get behind the mic in 2007. Since then, he has hosted and produced some of triple j’s highest rating shows, from House Party to Super Request to Home and Hosed, scoring top interviews with Goldfrapp, John Butler, Krafty Kuts and Urthboy.

Brendan has been awarded Pedestrian.TV’s ‘King of Twitter’, presented segments for The Project and now has a music publishing deal with Universal. He arranged an overwhelmingly successful crowdfunding campaign for the video clip to his song Stupid, which was pasted on the front page of Buzzfeed and racked up over 130,000 views on YouTube. His newest song Winner also made the front page of Buzzfeed and drew 18,000 plays on YouTube in its debut week.
