EJ O’Reilly is a Singer/Songwriter based in London but originally hails from the Mourne Mountains, Co. Down (Yes the ones Don McLean sings about).  His music is down-to-earth and honest, telling stories of love, loss, the countryside and the city, as well as a few comical ones for good measure. Influences are drawn from experiences and stories he has come across through life.
Previous Releases – ‘Young O’Reilly‘, ‘Australia‘ and ‘Easy’ – have received a number of glowing reviews and he is hoping to bring something truly brilliant and unique with his fourth-coming release, ‘The Frontier Three.’ The narrative album explores mid-1800’s America, when modernity pushed West and the foundation of the US was formed. The stories tell of the trouble and strife faced through three central stories ‘God’s Gun‘ ‘The Expressman‘ and ‘ An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge‘. ‘The Frontier Three’ stems from a childhood spent watching way too much American television, books given to EJ by his grandparents and a fascination with the Wild West.

The first single from the album, ‘The Expressman,’ tells of the the hazards faced by riders on The Pony Express, a mail service that ran between 1860 and 1861. The Pony Express cemented itself into American history due to the true grit shown by its riders required to travel from Missouri to California in no more than 10 days.
EJ’s music has been featured on The Country Mile Radio Show, Chordblossom.com, Chat and Spin Radio, Folk and Honey Magazine, North West Country Music, Live on the Road playlist, Sound and vision Country, Siren Radio, New Folk on Friday Playlist and many more.
