Songbook

“O’Connell has a unique perspective on life from both sides of the Atlantic. His music spans a wide spectrum of emotion, balancing cynicism with light hearted discourse and moving sentimentality… although he has obvious roots in traditional Irish music, O’Connell is never limited by its charm or range. Instead, he pushes his music further into the mainstream…”

– Chris Fisher, The Minuteman Chronicle
