“O’Brien is a talent to watch” – Blues Revue USA
Multi award-winning trio The PJ O’Brien Band plays an all original repertoire of Australian Blues and Roots.
Driven by PJ’s fat and funky guitar and accompanied by his smooth, soul-filled vocals, PJ’S music is receiving widespread acclaim. His Blues exude both a retro and modern feel, delivering award-winning songwriting and spine-tingling dynamics. Al Hensley of Rhythms Magazine Australia named him “one of the brightest talents to emerge on the Aussie Blues scene in a long while….an international blues star on the rise”.
PJ’s music has featured in Blues Revue (USA), Blues Blast (USA), Blues Matters (UK), Classic Rock’s ‘Blues’ (UK), Rhythms (AUS) FHM (AUS) and Australian Guitar Magazine.
PJ has won numerous music awards over the years and in 2006 received an Australia Council grant to represent the Sydney Blues Society at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN. In February 2017 the PJ O’Brien Band again represented the SBS at the 2017 International Blues Challenge reaching the semi-finals from a field of over one hundred and twenty American and International acts.
