The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

Listen again to the great Ralph McLean chatting to Hub founder Rob Ellen on BBC Radio Ulster about his quest to encourage concerts in peoples own homes, when the Medicine Show toured Ireland this year with Chuck Hawthorne and Libby Koch (featuring interview and session with them too) 35 minutes into the show.(click picture)

Reviews

The Sunday Express (five stars) ***** "This should launch a new star into the charts. ''

The Herald (four stars) **** ''O'Connor has one of the best voices heard in some time, and a set of fine songs to show it
off…''

The List (four stars) **** "There is an unmistakable modern twist to her music, and she flits effortlessly between, husky poppiness to soulful stripped down and spine tingling."

Jeremy Vine (BBC Radio 2) ''Fresh, self-assured and original - Esther's music just makes you happy to be alive. What a great talent.''

Classic Rock Magazine "I can't stop playing Making Me Clean, a plaintive yet powerfully sung tune with a bluesy framework and plenty of commercial potential. Miss O'Connor's vocal technique seems as fiery and precocious as her red hair."

Blues Matters Magazine “sparkles and shines throughout.”

Esther O’Connor; Biog

Esther O’Connor, ‘‘David Geffen crossed with Stevie Nicks’’ as described by the Sunday Times, previews music from her forthcoming 3rd album. Harking back to the great singer songwriters of the 60’s and 70’s Esther has an arresting and potent songwriting talent. Esther O’Connor is the real deal.

Recently Esther released her second album 'Right Here' in the UK on her own record label to outstanding critical acclaim including among others an unreserved 5 stars in the Sunday Express and support on BBC Radio 2 and on regional radio nationwide.

Esther's past festival appearances include, T in the park, V festival. Her latest single 'Lost Innocence' was again supported on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland, received rave reviews in the press and saw Esther performing live on STV's 'The Hour'.

Her live performances have been hailed by the critics as ''Sublime'' and ''Spine- tingling'' (The List), having ''Buckets of charisma... A real rock and roll princess'' (The Sunday Mail) and possessing ''A voice rich in depth and emotion'' (The Buteman).

Radio stations nationwide have also been captivated by Esther's tuneful haunting songs and blown away by her stunning live radio performances.
Tom Morton of Radio Scotland describing one of her tracks as "Neil Young meets Beyonce round at Joni Mitchell's house", recognizing the retro flare that runs through Esther's music and her love of a sassy pop hook. Journalists and fans alike recognize that Esther is a trailblazer, a talented musician forging the way ahead in this new musical landscape.

hi Esther, hope all is well with you, thanks for contacting me me!  I haven't visited this site in a while, so sorry for the late friend request add on.  I'm hoping to establish more contacts in the U.K.  I live in Nashville, and part time in Norway (my husband is Norwegian).  We'll be here in September of this year, performing.

 

warm regards

Hi Esther - long time!

Hope all is very well with you and that we can do some music business soon ;-)

I have a pub in Ashton-Under-Lyne (Gtr Manchester, OL6 6HX) and I'm starting a House Concert Hub here. Would love to have you down to play if you are in the area or feel you can use a gig here as a base for a mini tour?!

Nice to see yer wee face again... I still remember the mirror image Moon guitars flashing at the gig in de.bees, Winsford - how long ago?

Anyhow, let me know if you fancy the gig ;-)

Hi Esther, I'm that nutter in Wales that runs PheonixRadio.Net and it tales up a lot of time and effort but I get to meet nice people like you! (If only virtually thus far!) Are you looking for another concert in Wales, or an artist? I might be able to oil some wheels,...

Not quite sure how I ended up with 'host' status...........thought I'd rejected that for 'just visiting'. Haha!..........have to say that if you all end up back at our place, the audience will have to stand on each others shoulders, and the band will only have enough room to play one at a time................which could mean that a single track may take half an hour, and lose something of its originally intended sound. The plus side is that if anyone faints, they'll still be standing when they eventually come round...........and it won't be far to the bar or the loo......haha. The thought's made me laugh out loud. Thanks Esther............don't really know you but I think I'd like you dude.
