CHRISTIAN O’CONNOR “Something To Believe In” Video Premiere via VENTS

With a mastery of mind-melting guitar, Philly singer-songwriter Christian O’Connor fronts a power quartet that is leaving a mark on every trail they blaze.

Letting licks rip like Billy Gibbons, Derek Trucks, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jonny Lang and Gary Clark Jr., O’Connor isn’t just making a statement, he’s detonating one. Mixing Stevie Ray Vaughan type frenetics with an Iggy Pop frenzy, he’s a formidable force to be reckoned with.

Building on the buzz of his bold debut album, Dogma, Dharma, Grace and Karma, O’Connor partnered with Vents Magazine to premiere, “Something To Believe In,” the first single from his forthcoming album, Wine Over Water – Blood Over Wine.

Releasing summer 2017, Wine Over Water – Blood Over Wine, is a 10-track behemoth that’s set to rattle the foundation that classic rock was built on. In addition to the muscular hook-laden Something, which brings to mind the powerful songwriting of Ryan Adams, Matt Nathanson and Butch Walker, future single “Down” ups the ante with its melodic multi-layered histrionics, à la Allman Bros and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

With track after track that burn brighter and brighter with each successive roundabout, it’s an epic escapade throughout. “It’s Killing Me” and “Never Going Back” boil with a brand of blues fusion that evoke storied progressive rock, while ballads like “Yearn To Fly” and “Believe” are destined to soundtrack dramatic cinematic scenes. Add in the deep-dive adventures of “Who I Want To Be,” “Love Steps,” and “All That’s Dead and Gone” and top it off with the boogie-woogie “boom” of “Friday Night Rocks,” and you have a blistering arsenal of anthems ready to rock, rock until you drop.

Christian OConnor Live

First emerging on the national landscape via exposure on NFL Network and NASCAR RaceDay & Trackside on FOX, O’Connor has continued to build a loyal fanbase while on the road with Jennifer Paige, Leigh Jones, Rivers Monroe, and The Howling Tongues.

During incendiary sets at NASCAR & NHRA races, Boston’s First Night & Harborfest and a red-hot college tour, any part of the venue is fair game, from speaker stacks to table tops to bar tops to crowd-tops. Navigating varying terrains with the same vigor as fingers bounding the fretboard, O’Connor’s explosive live performances always leave the audience gasping for air with fists raised everywhere.

Now, that’s something to believe in.

Ya me has dado más de lo que nunca sabrás.

I wrote this for you exactly one year ago today (+21 minutes...wrote it at 1:35pm). Today, I’m saying it to you and saying it to myself as well.

No way to sugarcoat it. i want it all. the caramel and chocolate meringue, the double Devonshire cream, lemon curd and preserves, the pink pink fairy floss, the fresh fruit tart, the divine Jasmine tea and the sumptuous black & white éclair but also the pistachio macaron that rolled off into the corner behind the refrigerator, the apple and cinnamon cupcake crumbs that were trampled under foot, the super salty vegemite-like fig jam, the half-cracked hazelnuts, the burnt brioche and the Rooibos des Vahinés that's been fermenting since forever.

And please don't mistake this pastry infused communiqué as anything other than the succulent truth. As true as the Grand Cru at Blue Bayou is my Love for You.

I am the wind beneath my wings. I will keep fluttering higher and will keep fighting for that moment when the chaos finally quiets in my mind.
✨💫 🌹
The long and winding rose
That threads our hearts
And leads us home
Will always be in our bones

Whether together
Or weather alone
This is a portal
That can’t be cloned
What we feel is real
True love with the
Click of a heel
Hearts congealed
Under the light of the moon
Against a current of blue
Souls intertwined
With the strength of a lion.

Lifetimes ago
A long and winding rose
Was how I proposed
With a solemn vow
I did avow
To love you
In the here and now
For time eternal
And for each day
Moving forward
The long and winding road
Of memories adored
Carries us toward
Forevermore
💞∞
