About
A Londoner taking to the stages of Hong Kong with a set of folk-infused, original songs.
“The night began with Jules O’Brien who, I can say without hyperbole, has among the best voices I’ve yet heard at the Underground.” Shashwati Kala, Underground HK

“Sporting a silvery-blue smoky eye look and ripped jeans, singer-songwriter Jules O’Brien took to the stage with her nylon guitar, amidst of a roomful of folk music enthusiasts. Within just two to three bars of her [first] song, she has managed to not only capture our imagination with her hauntingly beautiful vocals, but also take us along on an emotional roller coaster ride.” Veronica Lin, Underground HK

“An astute and captivating performer, O’Brien and her laid-bare demeanour will linger in the memory for some time.” Lauren James, SCMP

Acoustic sets often eventually meet with the inescapable fate of being boring, but here, even though Jules employ the same indie-folksy tune throughout, the variety of styles she takes on, from heartfelt and honest to quirky and naughty, keeps the audience enthralled throughout the night.” Karen Cheung, Underground HK


Influences:
