Desperately Seeking Paul : Paul Weller Fan Podcast

EP71 - Villagers - Conor O‘Brien - Singer-Songwriter — ”Here‘s one for the Searching soul in the moonlight, it‘s alright…”

December 14, 2021

My latest very special guest is Conor O Brien, otherwise known as the multi-award-winning singer-songwriter behind the band Villagers.

We dig in to a love of Paul's music (and vice-versa) along with collaborations over the years from US tour support to The Black Barn Sessions and writing together for True Meanings - and even their recent performance together at The Roundhouse in London.
Villagers latest LP - Fever Dreams - is an amazing piece of work too - well worth checking out.
