About Chris O'Brien

Boston based singer/songwriter Chris O’Brien is an artist on the rise. Since the release of his February 2007 CD "Lighthouse," Chris has caught the attention of many. He was chosen from a pool of nearly 1,000 contestants to appear on Garrison Keillor’s "Prairie Home Companion" in the "People in Their Twenties" talent contest. The next week "Lighthouse" was the 5 Bestselling Folk Record on iTunes April 21-27.

2007 Highlights:

Finalist "A Prairie Home Companion" People In Their Twenties Talent Contest

2007 New Artist of the Year - WUMB 91.9FM Boston

Grand Prize Winner WMVY radio "Fresh Produce" Sampler

Emerging Artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival

Finalist Mountain Stage "New Song" Contest

"As a music fan, I live for those moments when I hear a performer for the first time and detect unmistakable magic. It happened with Shawn Colvin in 1989 and Patty Griffin in 1996. Last summer, O’Brien caught my ear he’’s an uncommonly talented lyricist, with a voice that feels comfortable and familiar at first listen."

-Michael Witthaus Eagle Times, Springfield, VT

"Lighthouse is full of beauty, optimism and, well, light."

-Performing Songwriter Magazine
