Learning to play guitar and write songs from a very young age, Dublin born John Cathal O’Brien continues to write consistently and focus on live performance. Having played with traditional Irish bands and plenty of other projects, the songwriter decided to focus on a solo career and throughout the years has released several recordings. O’Brien now resides in Brooklyn NY and is pursuing his music career full throttle. The Cemetery Songs EPs are available for streaming and download and O’Brien is working on an upcoming LP due out Fall/Winter 17, as well as playing shows regularly in New York and beyond.
John will be joined by vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Dylan Roddick. Dylan plays melodic guitar driven rock, which on a given tune could be channeling Americana, Jazz Metal, or Jangle Pop. His powerful voice lends itself to unique and catchy melodies, and his dynamic guitar playing creates an abundant sound with his trio.
