Re Shane O'Brien or Shane O'Brien and O'Briens Edge
I am an Artist who writes, records and performs original music. My experience includes over thirty years of performing music which of the last 15 years I have been concentrating on producing my own original material which amounts to 90% of any nights material to my live shows.
I am interested in hooking up with musicians from the South Bay area of Los Angeles or Long Beach ares as well. Looking to jam regularly and keep our chops up kind of thing and maybe do some gigs as well. If you feel you can participate then shoot me an email and I'll supply my direct contact information to get together.
Here are some links which should show what I can bring to the table for us too:

Whats Up With That
Whats Up With That Track number: 2 Year: 2009 Album: The Genuine One Genre: Blues
Here is a music review regarding Whats Up With That by Shane O'Brien From six time Emmy winning Director Edward Lapple "Shane O'Brien's assembly of Imagery to Lyric idealism elevates this Original song by O'Brien, to an understanding for all to grasp. Some of the Lyric content, during a quick passing comment or two may offend the timid, but will absolutely be understood as a visual aid by most listeners. No words herein are meant to be offensive in nature, but rather assist in painting a clearer understanding of sacrifices by our Brave Armed Forces since the turn of the 19th century to todays Gulf Conflicts."
The Devils Kitchen
The Devils Kitchen Track number: 9 Year: 2008 Album: The Genuine One Genre: Blues
Blues Rock is more of a closer Genre description. Actually a good amount of room for improvisation are inherent to all the music once the core rhythm structures are down solid with everyone in the band.

Reflections of you and I
Reflections of you and I What you do in our relationship is a public reflection of me, and what I do is a reflection of you. So in a great relationship the reflections that we generate together can be inspirational. It can also have the opposite effect if one or the other simply doesn't care enough of what others may think of us or one another individually.

03 In The Big City c2006 revisited in '08 Feat Shane O'Brien and Danny TimmsPiano/Guitar/Vocal blues rock original song I wrote and had a great many good times performing this piece live at any venue I played in. Always a great response, especially once listeners are familiar with the lyric and how the fit the music just right.
who-s-lovin-whoAcoustic Blues Ballad. Duo Acoustic Guitars and Vocal. The song describing a tale of Love. A hint of desperation from a lovers quest to be appreciated and given that same genuine Love in return. In the end, it's over though...
09 In The Dark, Unplugged
09 In The Dark, UnpluggedHere a just a few examples of a personally written music catalog that has grown big time since December of 1999. This was recorded and mixed but yet to be mastered. The ears out there will know that part. Just think of what 24 CD's of material like this can be like. If it's just for me than that's cool, but I know there some folks that will want much more than what I dribbled out for samples here.

Think This One Over ICTT Version
Think This One Over ICTT VersionBlues Rock with a heavy influence of rock to this track, add a little Miles Davis influence and pepper in Crazy horse flavor from Neil Young's style. What you get is Shane O'Brien cutting loose with I gotta "Think this one over". This song was introduced to Shane by Hoppa Johnny, in its Rawest and most basic format. It the catapulted into it's present format. Hoppa was surprised and approved of the overhaul from it's original version. "Think This One Over" (c)2005 Hoppa Johnny, Shane O'Brien (p)2016 Jungle Music Productions
