About Robert O'Connor

In the artist’s words:
Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. Being around three years old sitting in the lid of my parent's record player listening to Blondie's Parallel Lines and feeling utterly content! I became an explorer of their LPs, from ABBA to Fleetwood Mac and The Bangles to Bon Jovi, I was in love!
What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? ABBA, The Visitors (Deluxe Edition) Dido, No Angel Madonna, Ray of Light Ray of Light is my first memory of hearing electronic music that wasn't outright dance. William Orbit's production fascinated me. The Visitors was top-tier sad bangers ahead of its time. No Angel made me want to put pen to paper as a songwriter.
Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “One Way Ticket” One Way Ticket is the song I've always wanted to write, a pure pop banger that takes inspiration from pop greats like ABBA and Pet Shop Boys. It's relentless in its delivery, with scintillating synths and a melody that sounds like a long lost 80s hit
