Siobhan O'Malley

Siobhan O'Malley plays a quirky mix of folk, pop, and alt-country; her music is a mash-up that reflects her varied musical tastes. Siobhan recently released the well-praised album "Alibi Bye". Music blog Hypnopomp and Circumstance says "the range of styles on 'Alibi Bye' is breathtaking" Her funny and witty lyrics can often tell stories from just a few words.

In October 2002, Siobhan released her first album, titled "Permanent Markers", produced by Steve Rossiter at Axis Sound. Her first album was a simple but heartfelt affair....Siobhan and her guitar singing songs she had been playing live for years. In the years since, she has promoted the album and played throughout the NYC area.

Siobhan signed with the new NYC-based indie label, Blue Cocoon. The new album, "Alibi Bye" includes top-tier studio musicians from throughout the city. Steve Doyle on bass, Lonnie Soloway on drums, Doug Shank on dobro and Roger Lent on horns. Hypnopomp and Circumstance also said "Alibi Bye" "gives the listener a lifeline, and by doing so she positions herself as a kind of humorous shaman, guiding us through our own treacherous terrain".

Her musical peers seem to be in agreement: Acclaimed singer-songwriter Ruth Gerson calls Siobhan and her work “amazing” and “interesting and inventive…creative and beautiful
and power-pop super-star Mike Viola (of the Candy Butchers) says Siobhan is “fantastic super self expressive, dive deep and surface”.

The website The Sheila Variations said of "Alibi Bye": "Each song is its own complete world, you don't feel a sense of same-ness, like you're just hearing the same song tricked up over and over again. And it all feels completely right, when heard together. It works as a whole."

Siobhan is currently working on a new EP, scheduled to release in Spring 2010.
