Musician

Mickey O’Brien is a composer from south London. As well as playing in the band for Grammy award winning La Roux, recently Mickey has scored feature documentary Dispossession: The Great Social Housing Swindle made by the makers of Invisible Britain: Sleaford Mods. In a rare live set, her solo material is stripped back and she uses the piano and words as her tool to discuss how she feels about topics about politics to love and loss. It may be hard to put your finger on her sound, but she has been described as a cross between punk piano, rag time and Jewish gypsy waltz.
