Full Bio:


"The songwriter’s work to date has been explorative, sincere and endlessly refreshing." - The Thin Air

"One of the strongest tracks to come out of the west of Ireland so far this year" - The Thin Air

"A nice psychedelic sway here, a summery scene and a vocal that floats imperiously over our heads." - MP3 Hugger

"A heartfelt, raw and honest exploration of personal rediscovery, nature and memory "-The Thin Air

"Shapes out a sound that surrounds the listener in a soothing haze"- Yab Yum

"A dreamy and hazy sound that is a perfect fit for fall season" - Find A Song

"Stylistically, the track shifts slightly from the folkier leanings of After The Storm and instead takes a swing at the dream-pop pace and textures of Real Estate, The War on Drugs and fellow Galway artists like New Pope" -The Thin Air

"Returning now with his second EP, Turn, the ventures into a full-band sound are becoming more sure-footed and assertive, taking as many cues from the likes of The War On Drugs and Real Estate as from stalwarts of the Americana folk tradition" - The Thin Air

"Spacious melodies pervade this EP, allowing O’Brien’s lyrical focus on reinvention and rediscovery to echo through its very core." - The Thin Air
