Walk Back Home

SFR 357.4064.2

Stereo Hybrid SACD

The likes of Paul O'Brien, the British artist of Irish stock has covered a remarkable musical waterfront.   Now he has reached Stockfisch.   O'Brien is a courageous man.   And it takes courage to leave everything behind and start a new life on Canada's most western shores - a life in which music was initially no longer meant to play a vital part.

But an artist cannot get away from art easily.   What does that mean?   Paul O'Brien will tell you in “He Can Dance,” a song about an artist who can dream and dance.

Dream and dance can change reality, they can transcend it - just like faith (“Romero”, a song about a bishop who changed his world).   This song features a children's choir.   Up-tempo songs begin and end a performance offering an eclectic best of folk, country and jazz.
