After running away from home in his early teens, Brendan Little began performing in Boston’s Newbury Street shopping district to earn money for food and cigarettes. Now 19, he has accrued more than some grub and smokes, having opened for such acts as Bettie Serveert, Ben Lee and Buffalo Tom.
Little — who cites Bob Dylan, Radiohead and U2 as influences — is in the studio recording his first album with producers Jon Carin (Pete Townshend) and Perry Geyer (Joey McIntyre). The upcoming set has already drawn the attention of MTV, which is filming the singer/songwriter for a You Hear It First segment slated to air this fall. By then, Little expects to be shopping his album.
“I’ve been working on the record on and off for two years, so we’re just taking our time,” he says, “but hopefully I’ll find the right match.”
