Brennan tips her cap to songwriters like Iris DeMent, Jarvis Cocker, David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Merle Haggard and Ray Davies. International Pop Overthrow founder David Bash described her as "a singer songwriter with a unique brand of glitter glam soulful rock n’ roll sung straight from the heart" and said "you gotta love anyone who can channel Roy Orbison, Elton John, Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, and Etta James in the space of a single set." Brennan is also featured on the KAET/Tempe Center for the Arts public television concert series "Songwriters Showcase" airing on PBS stations in fall 2013. Other notable recent appearances include the "In The Spotlight" songwriters-in-the-round showcase and showcase sessions for Kulak's Woodshed in Hollywood. The Arizona Republic named her one of "15 Artists To See In 2013" and praised the "cinematic sweep" of her songs, while music critic Mark Keresman praised her "spunky, Chris Isaak-esque Americana.".
Java Magazine's Mitchell Hillman echoed that praise, calling Brennan "a great musician and a formidable writer," and author Neil Gaiman praised her cover version of David Bowie's Five Years as "glorious". A native of Phoenix, AZ, Brennan began performing live in 2012 and has toured the USA ever since while working on her debut album set for 2014. Brennan is also a rock journalist and screenwriter who co-wrote the comedy "Love Or Whatever". Videos, free songs, tour dates and writings are at Brennan's offical website, www.planetcait.com.
