“Siobhan O’Brien immediately reaches into the stratosphere with The King’s Fool. Adopting traditional native American and country and western styles with a bit of Sheryl Crow, O’Brien has a hit on her hands.”
– James McQuiston, NeuFutur
(New York, NY) January 17th, 2019: Conveying honesty and vulnerability, contemporary singer-songwriter Siobhán O’Brien releases new single “The King’s Fool”, off her new album You Can’t Run Out of Love. With heartfelt lyrics, O’Brien brings a compelling track about her assimilation into the US and combines it with the feelings of frustration in trying ‘make it’ as a musician.

Inspired by great American singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Brandi Carlile,  Sheryl Crow, and Joan Baez, O’Brien creates emotive tracks inspired by changes throughout her life. “The King’s Fool” is this introduction into her artistry and a bit of a tease for what is to come on her third full-length record, You Can’t Run Out of Love, out late February 2020.Recorded in Austin, Texas, at Cicada Moon Studios, O’Brien worked alongside John Bush (percussionist for Edie Brickell &  New Bohemians) and Matt Hubbard (keyboardist for Edie Brickell &  New Bohemians). Together they brought to life 10 original songs, each documenting important moments in her life since she left Ireland for the US in 2016.

Her new single “The King’s Fool” is the first step for O’Brien to show off her unique blend of rock and folk. Be sure to check out Siobhán O’Brien’s latest single and follow her on social media for music updates.
