If only we woke up to things earlier.  From the first album I know a little place.  Enjoy the video footage livening up the gloom!

Listen to 6 albums on this website including the brand new Don't Believe the Crystal Ball, which far from disowning my life as a forecaster reaffirms that we make the future.  And even more recently the first of two song cycle albums, Wherever the Moon Is - Songs of Migration, tracing the life of my forebears when they came from Ireland to London in 1844.

Rough Trade Review

Richard Rhys O'Brien strikes a delicate balance between heart-on-your-sleeve songwriting and playful arrangements that soak in musical direction from the band's various muses. The blues and the tango, the waltz and the lullaby, making an inspired mix of 14 songs of love and modern day life, enhanced by sparkling guitar, pulsating bass and drums, tinkling piano and great lyrics sung with unusual clarity. Bruce Knapp on guitar, Richard Sadler on bass, Tony Shepherd on drums and supporting vocals from Callie Howard and Christine Axelle.
