Copper Alley is Brendan Devereux's first collection of self-penned songs. It is a tasty set of acoustic songs recorded not long after Brendan began to write songs, and after he had won the Singer/Songwriter Contest at the Killarney Folk Festival, where he performed alongside artists such as Paul Brady, Mick Hanley and Jimmy McCarthy. The title-track was inspired by the life and work of 19th. Century Dublin poet James Clarence Mangan. Brendan was born in Finglas West, Dublin, Ireland. For the past twenty years he has worked as an Educational Welfare Officer - before that he studied Philosophy and Sociology at Trinity College Dublin. Brendan is the genuine article - a writer of quality songs, delivered with truth and passion. 'Brendan Devereux is an undiscovered talent' Froots Magazine.
