AMF ARTIST OF THE MONTH

Daisy O’Connor

Our June AOTM is traveling folksinger and songwriter Daisy O’Connor! Her latest record, Mixtape II, is a fun, low-fi, straight-to-fans release available now on Patreon. She’ll be releasing it to Bandcamp later this month, and you can see her performing at Geraldine’s on Friday June 21 for our June Locally Grown Music series.

In response to her quarter life crisis, singer-songwriter Daisy O’Connor quit her career in social work and hit the road to write songs, live simply, and “do be do” what she loves today.  “Music saved my life, reaching my darkest moments and reminding me I’m not alone. I want to shine that light back.” An engaging, humorous, and candid performer, Daisy prefers to perform solo – folksinger style – and tours as much as she can, always taking the road less travelled.  

Daisy’s debut full length album “Lightchasers” (released February 2017) mixes indie folk, rock, psych, Americana, country and pop into a soothing groove that’s all her own: quirky, captivating, cleverly queer, and crooning.
