A fourth generation Irish musician, music runs in Siobhan O’Brien’s blood. She moved from her native Ireland to America to lay down music roots of her own.  She quickly secured an opening slot at the Birchmere Music Hall for English songwriter Nick Lowe and never stopped.  Eventually her career landed her in Austin, Texs, to record her third album “You Can’t Run Out Of Love. An indie alternative folk blend of Joan Baez, Brandi Carlile, and Joni Mitchell, it showcases her magically clear voice and unparalleled songwriting. O'Brien has performed with Bob Dylan, The San Diego Symphony, and The Chieftains among others. Her solo work combines American music like, folk, blues, country, rock and traditional music from England, Scotland and Ireland. She is the niece of Brendan Bowyer of The Royal Showband and the great-greatgrandaughter of Albert Bowyer of the Bowyer/Westwood Opera Company of Blackpool, England. She made her first musical recording of a sea shanty at the age of six. In 2008, she toured the United States with performances in New York City, Boston, Nashville and California, performing with The Chieftains at Boston Symphony Hall, and  as a guest vocalist with The San Diego Symphony.
