John O’Shea Releases New Single

Singer Songwriters like John O’Shea come along once in generation. With an English Heart/Irish Blood heritage and upbringing in Ealing the birthplace of British rock, the history of British Rock n Rol is woven into John’s DNA.

Having binged on Beatle and Dylan records in his early childhood, the songs of Lennon and McCartney sowed the seeds for John’s profound calling to be a singer songwriter. This calling was heard in John’s early teens when he discovered Nirvana. ‘Smells ‘Like Teen Spirit’ hit John like a thunderous wave the first time he heard it, and following that wave his songwriting fate was sealed.

Unable to read and write music, John’s uncompromising approach to songwriting is entirely intuitive, some might say ‘eureka’ like. As a result John’s songs solely express his own thoughts and feelings, rather than mirror the passing trends of the times. With John there are no misinterpretations to be had, like the classic acts of Guns ‘n’ Roses, The Rolling Stones and The Who, who we all still love and adore today.

With the modern day and age of streaming pushing artists to focus on singles with the help of their ghost writers, John feels like the album and songwriting needs to be brought back to centre stage. Crafting his trade as both an acoustic solo performer and with his band around the capital and beyond, John is now beginning to carve a name for himself in the music scene. With plenty more still up his sleeve, all his work is underpinned with a conscious drive to bring rock and roll back to the surface – to where it belongs
