Burnin’ Daylight’s team of talented musicians have more than a half a century of combined playing and performing experience between them. All love being onstage and making functions and events come alive with great live “contemporary” & “retro” Country music.
Ace is Burnin’ Daylight’s male lead vocalist. After 30+ years singing his heart out in musical theatre or fronting bands, David ‘Ace’ Brennan has made the stage his home. A veteran of more than 30 theatrical productions, Ace’s trademarks are his professionalism and versatility. As you would expect, Aceman has a wide range of musical tastes but “Country” is where his heart lives. He enjoys all genres of music and lists The Beatles, The Beach Boys, America, The Eagles, John Denver, James
Taylor, Glen Campbell, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, Blake Shelton, Sugarland, Zac Brown Band, Chris Stapleton, Brett Young & Kasey Chambers as some of his favourite and most influential artists. Ace loves to rock a “party hard” crowd!
Luke is Burnin’ Daylight’s guitarist and backing vocalist. Whether it’s some gentle ballad accompaniment or big “singalong strumming” on his trusty Ibanez, a bit of low-down dirty grunge on Johnny Cash’s “Personal Jesus” or some screaming Fender Strat driven solos to “Life Is A Highway”, Luke loves to add his guitar work to help create Burnin’ Daylight’s authentic sound. Luke’s musical influences include 60s icons like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, a good old dose of 70’s/80’s/90’s Aussie rock and Country legends such as George Strait, John Denver, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, James Taylor, and of course, Australia’s very own John Williamson. Over 30 years of performing in working bands, “Cool Hand” Luke loves a “gig” and his professionalism, passion and musicality consistently shine through. Shine On You Crazy Diamond!
Steph is Burnin’ Daylight’s female lead vocalist. Her father’s love of Country music (especially John Denver) ensured she developed a passion for music at an early age with “Country” being a significant influence on her musical journey since her early 20s. Whether it was singing in the lounge room as a kid, competing in international choir competitions, performing in musical theatre productions or writing and performing her own songs, Steph has done it all.
Artists such as Kip Moore, Timothy James Bowen, Carrie Underwood, Maren Morris, Carly Pearce, Keith Urban and Luke Combs continue to have a significant influence
