Siobhán O'Brien - Biography
Hailing from Limerick, Ireland Siobhan O'Brien has been entertaining audiences with her individual unique voice, and her personal style of songwriting.. No newcomer to the
entertainment field, Siobhan made her first audio recording at the tender age of six,with an old sea shanty.
Siobhan has roots from four generations in the music industry.Her great grandparents were Travelling Opera Singers.The Bowyer/Westwood Opera Company,they came from Blackpool in England.Their only son Stanley played violin in
their orchestra pit. They settled in Ireland when Albert Bowyer (Great Grandfather) died in Omagh Co. Tyrone while touring.Most notably, she is the niece of Ireland's Sixties music legend, Brendan Bowyer (The Beatles open for Bowyer 1962 at the "The Liverpool Empire") Siobhan has performed in concert as a guest vocalist with the famed Irish group The Chieftains. She has appeared in shows supporting such acts as: The Cranberries,Damien Dempsey, Christy Moore,Donovan,Sharon Shannon, Henry McCullough (McCartney & Wings),Maria McKee & Mick Flannery .

Leonard Cohen heard about Siobhán from a friend of his which prompted him to send a
book to her called 'Dance Me To The End Of Love' with a Henry Matisse painting on each
page, as a gesture of encouragement.

Siobhan's new CD 'Songs I grew Up To' includes special guest appearances by several of
Siobhan's musical friends including Paddy Moloney (The Chieftains) Pete Cummins(Fleadh Cowboys/The Chieftains) & Brendan Bowyer (Royal Showband)

Otfried Stein

Songs I grew up to
Siobhan and her team has greated an extra-ordinary musical work. The arrangements of the songs are unique. The voice of Siobhan and the artistic playing by the musicians creat a mixture that electrifies. And most of the songs are songs I grew up to, too. So it's a special mood and connection with this record.
Sad that Cat's eyes isn't available no longer.
