This is Me – Lee O’Brien

About a week ago, I became aware of a new release by Singer-Songwriter Lee O’Brien. I was unacquainted with the artist, but the record’s producer was very familiar; Mr Francis Rossi. As the host of a Status Quo themed podcast, the involvement of the band’s frontman was music to my ears; I couldn’t wait to hear it.

This is Me is a new song taken from O’Brien’s upcoming album of the same name and was co-written with Rossi. The track is a driving Pop/Rock song with an uplifting tone built on a base of solid instrumentation. The lyrics, including a memorable chorus, encapsulate the ups and downs of being a musician; Further brought home by the excellently put-together music video. Quo and general Rock fans may recognise some of the techniques employed here, but the energy and enthusiasm are brought to the front by O’Brien; This is his moment.

With the help of Rossi and Andy Brook, O’Brien has crafted together a catchy Pop/Rock song that sounds simple to the ear, yet ultimately complex in nature. If this and You and I are anything to go by, the album will be one to watch! This is Me is available to buy and stream from OBO Records.
