Michael O’Neill captures the haunted countrified post-punk-pop soul sound like no other; his hypnotic circular chord progressions sprinkled with delicate thoughtful hooks lead you to a misconceived notion that this stuff is easy when it is anything but.
Michael is an artist with a deceptively simple grasp of art and its subtle intricacies. On the outside he is rough- and- ready shooting from the hip.
