EP – Resistance
I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone.

I wanted to let you know a little about our review teams collective thoughts on music.
It's important to let the people we review know what we think of their music and how we listened to their creations.

This is O’Connor’s latest release “resistance” released in 2012. Over
the years O’Connor has made a name for himself beneath the Radar in Dublin
and surrounding areas. I get the impression O’Connor definitely one artist
that knows how to make a connection with his music.
Single from the CD.
O’Connor has done an amazing job carving out a unique niche for himself
within his amazing songwriting craft and a sincere approach. Right from
the start O’Connor’s emotional impact and world class songwriting cannot
be called into question. The opening track: “Older” is an amazing prelude
of sorts that will gently lead you by the hand down a timeless musical journey
that I would describe as emotionally invigorating.
The whole CD is wonderfully
simple yet wonderfully complex at the same time. It reminds me a little of John
Mayer and maybe even Ben Taylor, Cat Stevens, and even Neil Diamond but it has a
modern flair reminiscent of say a Jack Johnson or John Mayer.
There are some fantastic moments on display here which gives this CD
a very accessible feel emotionally.

One small recommendation – On future works perhaps O’Connor should include a bit more instrumentation.
Rory Richardson...EvO:R Reviewer.
What I like most - this EP does not attempt to hide the truth in any way, shape, or form, rather it tells it with bold honesty and a genuine conviction. It also has deep musical depth and puts the production genius of O’Connor front and center. Favorite song is “Older” and “Over”. The vocal timber and emotions are the ultimate report card for me when I evaluate music and this artist tells the truth – and in a word this CD says – Hey lighten up, your world can be a perfect one as well if you let it.
