KUTX Song of the Day 

"Daisy O’Connor is a former social worker and Austin singer-songwriter who’s devoted her time to Hill Country flood relief, Austin domestic violence shelter SafePlace, and a benefit compilation for Standing Rock. That empathetic streak runs through her debut album, Lightchasers. The record eases into gear with the title track, an unhurried folk-pop hybrid built on a bed of synths and O’Connor’s light-chasing harmonies. The natural imagery is a good fit–this is patient, quietly-built music. 

“Lightchasers” appears on Lightchasers, out February 3. Daisy O’Connor plays an album release show at the Cactus Cafe on February 3." 

–Art Levy // host, Sunday 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., producer, My KUTX

What folks are saying about Daisy 



"Daisy's EP shows extraordinary promise, her fresh voice and quirky narrative sensibility is reminiscent of Kacey Musgraves at her best but still always her own. A forceful combination of honesty and artistry."
-Texas Music Magazine


"I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with rising star singer-songwriter, Daisy O’Connor for a cup of coffee and what turned out to be one of the more enlightening and inspiring Ovrld interviews I’ve ever done."

“Daisy’s soft, whisper of a voice entices you into her world of lyrically crafted stories that will keep you fixed on every word.  She is definitely one to watch.”
-Nancy Coplin, Public Space Music


"It's a shame Bellingham native Daisy moved to Austin a few years back because holy cow, her music is beautiful. Daisy's growth as a musician and songwriter is simply stunning."
-What's Up Magazine 

 
"I'm still listening to your CD and am frankly blown away. The writing, production, and your delivery. AMAZING. You actually interrupted my night ... again. I had to shut everything down and just listen to you. This is so original."
Terri Hendrix, Grammy Award Winning Songwriter
 

ACL Festival 2014 

I attended ACL with my pals Dawn & Hawkes
who played the festival on Sunday. 
I love these two so much.
It was an honor to be backstage for their big gig.


We shared a trailer with our favorites- Jenny Lewis and Nikki Lane!! 
After their amazing performance we rode around on golf carts and drank coconut water.
Artist life can so tough sometimes. ;)

 We ate s'mores in a teepee with pal Luke Wade (who is currently on The Voice


AND THEN…...
Dave1 from Chromeo came up to me with a camera crew in tow
while I was trying on Teva's in the artist swag tent.
He needed a kiss for a contest and I was happy to help.   *smooch*

Thanks for a rockstar weekend, ACL Festival!
