RGM Introducing – Lee O’Brien

How positive are you feeling now restrictions are loosening?  

Very positive for the future. Happy to see the world reopening. 

How much are you looking forward to playing live?  

Can’t wait to get out for the first time to play this album live. 

Whats one question you’re sick of being asked when interviewed?  

I don’t get sick of being asked questions. If you’re being asked questions you’re doing something right. 

Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?  

No I don’t listen to theories I like facts and make my own mind up. 

What support is out there for new artists in London ?  

Not sure as it’s been closed for so long but look forward to finding out.

Who is inspiring you at the minute on the London unsigned scene?

I don’t know of any at the minute – sorry 

What useless party trick /talent do you have/?

I don’t have any lol 

What was the most fun you have had on stage?

When I supported Bobby Davro as he was hilarious 

What was the worst experience on stage?

Power cut ????????‍♂️

Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about?

My Dad’s cousin is John Farnham who sang and released “Your the Voice”

Tell us a funny story from backstage?

I was singing at the London Palladium and I forgot my trousers. I had to borrow the stage hands trousers and they were 4” too short me

If you had to describe your act  to an alien how would you describe it?


What makes you stand out as a Artist?  

That’s a question for you to answer 

Right now, whats pissing you of the most? (Cant say the virus )

I don’t really let things piss me off – there’s no point 

Whats your favourite song to play live and why?

I haven’t played them live yet but I’d imagine it would be “I was told” because it’s a happy, cheeky song. 

Talk me through the thought process of the album?

Many of these songs were written over years and I knew one day I would love to be able to record an album. Luckily for me the pandemic gave me the time to hook up with my wife’s cousin, Francis Rossi to record it. 

What was the recording process like?

Absolutely brilliant. I will never forget it. 

Why record an album? A lot of artists are going down the road of regular singles, just interested in your thoughts on committing to an album right now.

I had so many songs it seemed silly not to record them. 

What was the biggest learning curve in writing the album?

Never rush writing a song. You need to work on it until you’re happy 

Would you change anything now its finished?


What are your plans for the year ahead?

To be able to play at the album launch 

Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?

Watch out for the next album!
