After a successful debut album last year, the new album packs a punch with its entertaining themes of love, life, liberty and contemporary issues.
Out of the blue Richard Rhys O’Brien started songwriting back in 2009, after a career as a global economist and futurist where he also had the privilege of visiting more than 80 countries during this career, but in five years he has released two albums and now working on the third and fourth, his raw talent has quickly progressed into his confident and clean music we hear today. The ‘future folk’ artist’s background as an economist has taught him many things about how the world revolves, inspiring him to write his songs of love and life. Richard’s signature musical style is drawn from legends such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits.
One of his popular tracks from the album is ‘Listenin to you Whistlin’ that reflects the mystery and compulsion of love. This new single has a great relaxing, chilled out tones combined with slight funk vibes; Richard has given us something different in this new song, compared to his last album that was more upbeat.
