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.

In Our Bones turns 1 today 💞
🥂
With what this album, and the band Against The Current, means to me, today is a happy day to celebrate!
✨
Over the past year, IOB was the soundtrack to my life, at the core of adventures near and far, physical and metaphysical, spiritual and unbelievable.
✨
In addition to my love for the music, the words expressed and sentiments conveyed resonate deeply. I've learned a great deal about life, love, and myself. It's been a transcendent journey!
✨
In Our Bones is in my bones, my heart and soul.
A light that shines Forevermore.

The first 7 episodes of Season 2 of Against The Current were absolutely brilliant!
The adventures undertaken and the magic of those days/nights will be remembered forever. I had so much fun!

ATC is on a mid-season break though I'm looking forward to some fall/winter episodes. In the meantime, I may find myself daydreaming about cherished moments w/ my favorite band.
💗 💡🏠
Happy Mother's Day!
Just arrived to Boston where I'm wrapping up one of my favorite weekends ever and am reminiscing about one of my other favorite weekends ever, one I shared with my Mom. She always wanted to go to the NE in the fall to see the changing leaves in all their glorious colors and I always wanted to visit Boston and Vermont so we made a long weekend of it (also scoped out New Hampshire). She's also a fan of lighthouses so we went to Nantucket one afternoon. The weather was perfect and the island was charming. We had a great time. When I talked to her today, we reminisced and talked about where to go on our next trip. I miss her but I'll be seeing her soon. 🤘🏻🤘🏻
Last two nights with Against The Current at Irving F*ckin Plaza were an absolute blast!! They were AMAZING, the crowd was super hyped...it was so much fun! Hearing Gravity, Runaway, Running With The Wild Things, Roses and Wasteland in NYC made it truly special! Will forever remember these 2 nights.
