PJ O’Brien knows how to get a Blues party started. His fat and funky fretwork has been turning heads from Perth to Memphis, Chicago, Austin, London, Singapore and back again. Along with frequent flyer points PJ has gathered a swag of awards including: Blues Song of the Year, WA Music Awards (WAMIs); Music Oz Blues Artist of the Year; Sydney Blues Society Performer of the Year; Best New Talent, Song of the Year and Group Of The Year at the ‘Chain’ Australian Blues Awards.
Driven by PJ’s searing Chicago/Texas style guitar and smooth vocals the PJ O’Brien Band’s brand of blues exude a retro and modern feel simultaneously, delivering award-winning songwriting and spine-tingling dynamics. The engine room of this sensational band features one of Sydney’s finest rhythm sections in the legendary Al Britton (Bondi Cigars) and Dave Fester (Glenn Cardier and the Sideshow) who combine their wealth of experience to effortlessly build infectious grooves song after song.
PJ’s new album, Jefferson Blues, was released in February 2012 and debuted at No. 1 on the Australian Blues and Roots Airplay Chart. It held the top place for two months, spent the four months in the top 3 and spent 5 months in the top 10 – showing a real dedication by DJs and listeners alike. The CD has received fantastic reviews in Australia, the UK and the US and is currently receiving airplay in Australia, Europe and the United States. Tom Hyslop of Blues Revue USA has labelled PJ ‘a talent to watch’ and Al Hensley of Rhythms Magazine Australia recently 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 has also recently appeared in Australian Guitar Magazine and the UK’s Classic Rock ‘Blues’ 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. He has played at the major Australian Blues festivals such as Blues at Bridgetown (WA), the Narooma Blues Festival (NSW), the Gympie Muster (QLD), Darling Harbour Jazz and Blues Festival (NSW), Blues on Broadbeach (QLD), Australian Blues Music Festival (NSW), Thredbo Blues Festival and the Echuca Winter Blues Festival as well as venues around Australia and overseas including Singapore, London and the US.
PJ spent 2010 / 11 recovering from a career-threatening neck injury requiring major surgery and is thrilled to be making a comeback with his new album Jefferson Blues. The PJ O’Brien Band are fantastic ambassadors for Australian Blues music and PJ looks forward to taking the band and his new all-original release Jefferson Blues to Blues fans everywhere in 2014.
