Influenced by her extensive travels and experiences around the globe, Shelley O'Brien is able to connect with all kinds of audiences. She's spent months sailing seas, years living in the far east, and days traveling trains throughout eastern and western Europe. She has played in many places: a church in Dawson City, Yukon, The Drake Hotel in Toronto, a mountain top tea-house in Japan, a balcony in Umbria, a cigar lounge in the Gulf of Mexico. Her seemingly effortless performances on piano and vocals are full of soul and joy.
An accomplished songwriter, too, Shelley recently completed her new album “you, me and the birds” with Vancouver indie producer Matthew Rogers.
