Andrew James O’Brien. Known for dynamic live performances, effortless union of voices in harmony, and anthemic melodies – they embody a wide-eyed energy, deliver messages of reflection and optimism, have an earnest mission for connection, and are endearing audiences across Canada and beyond.
Their songs celebrate coming of age, ambition, decisions we make to persevere, and the resilience of the human spirit. Their new album Hold Fast produced by Daniel Ledwell releases on May 25, 2018.
Fortunate Ones were supported by a remarkable array of collaborators on Hold Fast, including songwriters
