Brendan Hines - born December 28, 1976 in Baltimore, Maryland - is an American actor/singer/songwriter who portrayed Gideon Wallace in Season One of ABC's Scandal.

Personal BackgroundEdit

Brendan’s parents are a former nun and former priest who fled Brooklyn and the church to marry and teach Philosophy.

After fascinating but failed stints as a prom photographer and a telephoning salesman he left Baltimore for New York and eventually headed to Los Angeles.

Brendan’s songs are often about people who meet at street level and are primarily interested in escaping into bottles or beds. The music is folk; the sort of folk that you require to get you through a bad hangover or a broken heart; or into a binge or an unwise encounter. His songs are cautionary tales, post-love autopsies, wise-ass seductions, and ruminations on bad behavior delivered with candid whimsy, gallows humor and endlessly satisfying rhymes.
