Product Notes

Shelley O'Brien may be a new name on the Toronto scene - she's finally settled here after traveling to dozens of European cities, touring rural Thailand, cruising through the Panama Canal and living in Japan - but she deserves to make a significant impact. Originally from a small town in remote northern B.C., she's just released her debut CD, You Me and the Birds. It's best described as a little quirky, unusual in it's approach, but most definitely a thoughtful, accessible pop album. O'Brien plays piano and - gasp! - ukulele, which she regards as a serious instrument, not a toy to create forgettable novelty music. And the CD of her own original songs has a raft of found sounds, including noises made by a box of organic instant oatmeal, a sink full of water, ripping paper, a ratchet on bike spokes, ill-tuned AM/FM radio static, and the voices of kids at play.
