Cashel singer/songwriter Billy O’Dwyer Bob has just released his brand-new Christmas single, ‘The Christmas Blues’, a light-hearted up-beat song. The ‘b’ side of the single is a song called ‘Born on Christmas Day’ which tells the traditional Christmas story.
“If you are looking for an unknown star to hover over your stable this holiday season, then hitch your camel to the music of Billy O’Dwyer Bob. Most artists are content bringing out one Christmas song in a decade; Billy has two out in a week. There’s a retro feel about them both, travel back to late 50s America...Billy is from Tipperary but he’s captured all the simplicity of pre-Nixon America and the eternal innocence of Christmas in a brace of songs that fit the season perfectly,” writes Sean Laffey, Editor of Irish Music Magazine.
Billy’s previous single, ‘Tipperary Girl’ was recorded by major Irish artist, Daniel O’Donnell. Billy Bob is currently working on a new album, due out this spring. Both the two-track Christmas single and many of his other songs are available for download on his newly-launched website, http://www.billyodwyerbob.com/
