Ecstasy of The Soul..A wonderful new discovery for us! Siobhan O’ Brien…her songs are full of depth with emotion, & beautiful soulful lyrics…Her voice has a rich tonal quality…that uniquely merges Sandy Denny and Joni Mitchell…but is all her own…her approach is refreshing, her choice of melody and chord structure have a complexity that separates her from a lot of todays singer songwriters…We can see her rising to the top ~ The Young Brothers 2012
