Strange Weather is the experimental-pop project of singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sean Brennan. In their bones, the songs are timeless classics, embodied as romantic psychedelia – cinematic daydreams with echoes of Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, and Esquivel.
Born outside Baltimore, Brennan began composing for chamber ensembles in his teens. After studying poetry at college, he began working at a studio in his hometown, producing music for television, radio, and theatre. In 2011, he relocated to Brooklyn where he currently lives with his wife. Brennan has been diagnosed with a rare genetic eye disease called Choroideremia, and he is gradually going blind.
After a few years of accelerated vision loss, in summer 2014 Brennan moved to the beach near Assateague Island, Maryland, where he built a studio and began work on a full length album, Suspending Disbelief. The first single, “Coaccidents”, was released in May 2019, and won First Prize in the Great American Songwriting Contest.
In 2017, “Little Bit of Light” was used by GEICO in their Motorcycle campaign. Strange Weather has expanded into a rotating cast of characters that includes Callie Brennan, Davis Rowan, Paul Peglar, Sarah Mount, Matt Tobin, Slark Moan, Dan Drohan, Meia Noite, Yula Beeri, and Avram Fefer.
“Tidal Wave” is the flagship single from our upcoming full length debut album, Suspending Disbelief. The album was made over the course of five years, with frontman Sean Brennan playing most instruments, and producing it himself. “Tidal Wave” features a very catchy rhythm that makes you feel that everything in life is as it should be. It has recently been chosen by Australian celebrity David Genat to be the theme music for his upcoming podcast, which will feature A-list Aussie celebrities.

Aria Velz is a director, TikToker, and Lesbian Media Enthusiast based in the D.C. area. On November 2nd, she sat down with me to talk about it all, from her latest production at Olney Theatre Center to the things that lead to her little corner on TikTok.
On October 29th, Olney Theatre Center wrapped its run of Prince Gomolvilas’ ‘The Brothers Paranormal.’ The disconcerting, borderline terrifying production was co-directed by Olney’s Senior Associate Artistic Director, Hallie Gordon, and Velz herself. The show was one of the spookiest times I have had in a theatre in quite some time. It was evident that the show was a well researched labor of love.
