From a press release:

Philadelphia acoustic singer/songwriter Alex O’Brien will return to his hometown area to host his CD release party at the Irish Wolf Pub in downtown Scranton on Saturday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m.

Special guests include Scranton pop punk band GlowNovember, singer/songwriter Bryan Brophy, and more to be announced.

Formerly a Mountain Top resident, O’Brien is a multi-talented musician that specializes in performing both original music and recognizable cover songs. He has been performing live music since the age of 3, when he backed his father on drums. At the age of 15, he took up the acoustic guitar and began taking his own act to the stage. O’Brien’s constant hustle has seem him perform at coffee shops, benefit concerts, schools, and some of the most prestigious music venues on the East Coast.

O’Brien, who was named Live Streamer of the Year in the 2017 Steamtown Music Awards in Scranton, draws inspiration from John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Mac Miller, Bob Marley, and Jimi Hendrix. The goal of his unique and intimate live performances is to allow fans to leave the concert feeling connected to his music and each other. His music is often described as acoustic pop, indie, alternative, or singer/songwriter.

Although he is now based out of the Philly area, O’Brien’s roots are in Northeastern Pennsylvania. “When planning my CD release tour, it just felt right that I include a homecoming show in Scranton,” he said.
