Port O’Brien

Port O'BrienPort O’Brien comprise of folk-ish duo Van Pierszalowski and Cambria Goodwin. Collaborating on songs since 2005 they were later joined by a “rhythm section”; featuring Caleb Nichols, Zebedee Zaitz and Joshua Barnhart.

Since receiving a thumbs up from the Pitchfork crowd all they could do was sing. They’ve supported the likes of Bright Eyes and Modest Mouse and have played along side popular fancies Fleet Foxes, MGMT and Bon Iver, to name but a few. Johnny Marr touted them as a “current crush” and they certainly won numerous new fans through positive reviews from the music press ‘hardcore’.

Musically think ethereal, melodic, picture setting pop-folk and you’d be close enough to get the idea, frankly though I’m all for you make up your own conclusion on its musical sensibilities.
