First collection since the release of his acclaimed album in 2019, “The Love You Need”, John O’Brien’s ‘That Girl Is Trouble’ is a string of 4 compelling songs, with which O’Brien lets us savor the thickness and the variety of his stylistic caliber.

A critically respected artist with an impressive career behind him, his songs have amassed more than 350,000 views on YouTube, reaching on Spotify more than 40K monthly listeners and over a million streams.

Confirming that he has charisma and talent to spare, his latest project is a wide and varied parenthesis on the musical richness that he effectively incorporates into the stage name of The John O’Brien Experience ‘J.O.B.E.’

Moving skillfully and effortlessly in and out of the roots of a more classic rock, O’Brien gives us 4 vibrant tracks, waxing a compelling mix made of captivating styles, emotions, and sounds.

An impeccable bouquet showcasing the remarkable talent of an affable master of musicianship, O’Brien’s brand-new exciting EP ranges from the high-energy country-folk of the title track to the pop/jazz fusion of ‘Sibooney’, a romantic frame inspired by the historic beach of Aiboney, on the southern shore of Cuba.

O’Brien does not leave disappointed even when he brings out the harder side of his stylistic coinage, giving us a danceable rock number that comes through the story of emotional depths of ‘Take It Home’.

And it is equally commendable his ability with which in ‘Mother Ocean’ he returns the choral nature of an environmentalist message, begging us to “save the earth for all,” putting an end to the waste that weighs on the mother of all of us: that circle of life that is the ocean.

Prolific and proactive artist, O’Brien also has a new full-length album in production, which will be released by the end of 2020.

Being recorded at Eclipse Recording Studios in Saint Augustine Beach, in the hometown of O’Brien in Florida, USA, the album will be mastered in Exeter, UK, by legend Steve Kitch.

Featuring highly talented accompanying recording artists and hit-worthy compositions, this is an album that promises to be a noteworthy release and a next-level studio production.

The same is the expectation for The John O’Brien Experience “J.O.B.E.” UK tour. Initially scheduled for May 2020, with concerts in London, Oxford, Birmingham, and Bournemouth, the tour dates have been postponed to June 2021.

You can find all the dates of The John O’Brien Experience “J.O.B.E.” UK tour on John O’Brien’s Instagram profile.

In the meantime, while this is certainly not a stopgap, let’s enjoy John O’brien’s latest EP ‘That Girl Is Trouble’, available to stream on all major platforms.
