Fresh from a phenomenal feature in the Sunday times written by Award winning journalist Anna Burnside, and fantastic radio support from BBC Radio Scotland, Esther O’Connor is establishing herself as one of the most exiting talents on the Scottish Music Scene.
Running her own record label. ‘O’C Records’ Esther releases her debut album ‘The Place Where We Are’ Nationwide through Cargo on May the 21st.
Likened to a young Sheryl Crow or Stevie Nicks, Esther, (daughter of Wet Wet Wet’s Graeme Duffin) made her entrance to the music scene in 2000 when just 17 years old. Publishing and recording contracts followed with BMG and EMI Chrysalis and the next 3 years saw Esther, with former band Ashton Lane, touring around the UK including performances at ‘T in the Park’ and ‘V Festivals’.
Esther, now a successful solo artist on her own label has been touring all over the UK with her forthcoming album ‘THE PLACE WHERE WE ARE’. This has seen her share the stage with The Zutons and Son of Dave and draw celebrity fans, including Natasha Bedingfield, to her London gig at the Bedford. She is touring again from March 2007. This tour will see Esther play fantastic venues nationwide and appear on BBC radio stations across the country.
Esther’s forthcoming single, ‘Nirvana Man’, has been picked up by radio and press with interest across the country including support from Tom Morton and Janice Forsyth of BBC Radio Scotland.
With Esther’s captivating live performances and rapidly extending fan base she is sure to burst out of Scotland with the release of her new album and capture the imaginations of the whole of the UK.
