Irish Singer/Songwriter Seeking Drummer, Keyboardist, Guitarist, Bassist, BVs +
Date Listed 18/04/2018
My name is Robert O'Connor. I'm an Irish singer/songwriter and I've just released my new single "You Found Me" independently. I've had excellent radio support from the likes of 2FM, FM104, Red FM and Highland to name just a few in Ireland, as well as plays in the UK, US, Australia, Canada, Germany and France.
Before this single, I had taken a five year hiatus from music, and with the positive reaction to the single, I want to get back out on the live scene performing music - both new and from my back catalogue. I have two previous releases: 'Distance' (2008, Universal) and 'Resistance' (2012, AWAL).
With a new band of live musicians, I intend to inject new live into the previous material and bring it in line with my new music, which has a wide range of influences from '80s electro to '90s indie-rock with a hint of Nashville undertones. I am hoping to have significant input from musicians and while it's my name on the project, I would hope we'd all be working to a common goal as a band.
Now for the bad new - there is no management, label or investors in this project so at the moment it is not an earner, unless the gigs are paid gigs, in which case the fee would be very fairly split! But ultimately, it's something to get involved in because you like the music, want to be involved in something aspirational and creative, and play live as much as possible.
I hope to start gigging by June 2018 at the latest, and will be releasing a second single later, with plenty of live promo slots already offered.
