Introducing SHELLEY O'BRIEN / Vivarium (Out Oct 4, 2011)

578 views 2 years ago
In 2009, after a few years as a piano bar entertainer on cruise liners, Shelley O'Brien traded her ship's cabin for a Toronto apartment, and started posting videos on YouTube of her playing songs on her ukulele. This quickly led to invitations to play worldwide and launched a touring career many seasoned, successful songwriters would envy
.
Since the release of her debut You, Me and the Birds (2009), O'Brien has taken her ethereal pop songs around the world, to festivals in Paris, Venice, Helsinki and Melbourne. Extensive touring has also put her name on the marquee in cities like Barcelona, Rome, Brisbane, Rotterdam, and Reykjavik.

"Turn to Spring", the first single off new album Vivarium, has been featured on MTV's new comedy show Awkward and received extensive airplay in Shelley's native Canada.

"A beautiful songbird....an absolute find!" ~Radio Rijnmond (NPR), The Netherlands
"Shelley was doing the ukulele thing before it was cool. Or maybe she's one of the reasons it got cool in the first place." ~Globe and Mail (Canada)
"Beautiful... a playful mix of dulcet ukulele and atmospheric vocals." ~The Signal, CBC Radio 2 (Canada)
