Album Review : Conor O'Sullivan / Good Day Señor

This is a compelling collection of new songs, by Conor O'Sullivan, an artist that first came to prominence with folk outfit Deluce's Patent, some years back. An undertaking to lay down some demo tracks grew into a full-blown album. This may have reduced the pressure, and the resultant album has that air of quiet confidence about it. The songs tell stories, historical in part, delivered with understated vocals and arrangements that you would imagine could not have happened by chance. The opening Fruit Field is perhaps the standout track for its colourful, full bodied delivery.

Love Letters takes a much more restrained approach with voice and guitar anchoring the track in a sweet arrangement. Honeydew Rose, which we include below, veers into catchy pop tune territory, and is unlike the more melancholic and reflective feel of the rest of the album. Conor matches some fine arrangements of guitar and banjo throughout with some equally mature self-compositions.  The inclusion of a set of traditional tunes gives a nod to his early traditional years, but seems at odds with the rest of the material. There is a lot to be admired about Good Day Señor and as a debut of original material, it is impressive.

To purchase the album visit It is also available to download from iTunes.
