Kieran O’Brien – Guardian is available @ Apple Music.
“I discovered the music of Elliott Smith when I was around 17 or 18. I didn’t listen to anything else for weeks, I was obsessed. Not only did Smith’s music re-enforce my interest in playing acoustic guitar at the time, it brought out a lot of strong feelings which I had never experienced and allowed me to grow a lot emotionally. I was going through a tough time at this stage in my life and I guess I just found a lot of comfort in his music back then, as I do now.”
