Ecstasy of The Soul…Siobhan O’Brien…Echoes of The Spirits of Ireland
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
“Ecstasy of The Soul; Most assuredly ‘Echoes of The Spirits of Ireland’ are found within the music of Siobhan O’Brien however to stop there is to never make it to your destination, home to the hearth of your heart and soul. Many write and sing of troubles, pain, Love Lost… Siobhan O’Brien is one of the extraordinary few that take it within, allowing it to go through the transformative process in her heart, her soul, to reintroduce it to her audience as a found beauty of life…Love” - Caroline Purr
“You know those periods in music history when music finds itself in ‘Stasis’; Citizen of ‘The State of Monochrome Gray’? History has proven repeatedly that it is exactly during these times that the Irish rise to the occasion, injecting the music scene with their gift, blasting the full spectrum of light directly into the heart of ‘The Music’. This IS…SIOBHAN O’BRIEN!” - Radio Icon Zach Martin

Shades of Stevie Nicks on the Latest Offering from this Irish Songstress'
Songwriter Siobhan O’Brien’s self-titled album sees the tunesmith incorporate elements of folk, blues, country and soft rock into her own musical brew. For the most part, the genre gymnastics work really well on this charming LP. Bolstered by an impressive, quivering,Stevie Nicks-esque croon, the record is at its best when the singer really lets those melodies soar.
