about

Singer/Songwriter Daisy O’Connor calls herself a suitcase soul and possesses the adventurous and spontaneous spirit that defines a great traveller. As she navigates musical worlds she is equal parts bold and unguarded, blending truth-telling folk traditions with vivid lyrics and rock-inspired sounds. Her new EP “\ETHER is comprised of songs that served as catharsis during a long recovery from a car accident. Born of a fragile and uncertain period in her life, they reflect the resilience, positivity, and creative spark that carried her through. “Music saved my life, reaching my darkest moments and reminding me I’m not alone. I want to shine that light back.” ETHER was completely fan- funded and entirely crafted by Daisy and her bandmates Josh Halpern and Gregg White in Gregg’s small hill country recording studio. These are the songs that came shining through the Ether when they were needed most and Daisy is excited to share them.

Track Name: WILD
I'm burning down
Breaking bones
Cooling down
Drying out
I'm a field run fallow
Under February snow
Can't find a hand to hold
It couldn't keep me from the cold

My heroes aren't heroes
My demons dealing doubles through the night

Remember you were made wild
Rows and ridges fence the mind
Grow your hair out in the rain
Dig your roots down deeper in the dirt and find
You are right on time

I planted seeds, let them go
Walked away, let them grow
You and me, we are trees
Crossing roots and standing tall
Wrapping branches round the fall

And our heroes aren’t heroes
Writer of words, what's that worth?

Remember you were made wild
Roll in ribbon grass and rhymes
Dance your clothes off in the day
Take a breath, breathe out the pain
You'll be alright
Children of the wild

Now the drought is over
Let it rain, let it cry
Til springtime shines

Remember you were made wild
Track Name: WHIPLASH
Crash
The rain and the rubber
Can’t get out
Sitting on the road
Wishing for another
Theres a burn in the middle of my chest
Hips locked from braking into impact
Cut me out, shoot me up

Smash
Your words on my windshield
Put me down, keep me in the same wheel
Hits like this break ya down over time
Can't talk back baby, gotta take it like ya done a crime

Gonna climb in a cave, gonna hide
Can’t walk around safe so i’ll stay inside
The storm came and this is how i live now
With a seatbelt scar and a whiplash heart

Getting by on CBD, caffeine, clean cooking and vitamin D
Long walks, slow walks, slip around the same block
Never calling you back
I’m never calling you back
Is it killing you fast?

Gonna wait on the clouds to pass me by
Gonna wait on the storm to roll me over
Can’t keep waiting cuz its all a lie
Gotta learn to live how I am now
Cuz this is who I am now

Crash
Smash
Waiting thru the whiplash

Triggers take take take me back
As small as a look or a turn from the dash
The rain in the air, the burn of the rubber
The smoke on your breath
You sound like my mother

Gonna climb in a tree gonna hide
I can’t walk around safe so I'll stay high
The storm came and this is how I live now
With a seatbelt scar and a whiplash heart
Whiplash heart
Track Name: STILL LIFE
Driving through the county
Am I the lost or found me?
Feathers fall and fade through
Shaking off the shades of you

But its still life, still life

You’re playing house on the border
Thought there was a war there
Did you become the hunter?
You always wanted more

But its still life, still life

Threw it all under the bridge
Land of the living never gives
I'm falling down
We're breaking down
Into the ground

But its still life
And I’m still alive
Still life
Track Name: ETHER
Who’s voice is in your head?
Can you drown it down in the mix?
How long can you live in words?
I’m trying to be in my bones
I’m floating out thru the ether
I’m in the ether

Driving down Holly Street every day
On my way to therapy
All for the love of winter
Phoebe Bridgers
All for the love of a girl

Who’s voice is in your head?
Can you shut it down again?
Download a new computer program
Reload, do another yoga
Take a smoke, fill your lungs up
Lets float away… far away…… into the ether

And try to give less fucks
Than the general population
Thats how you take the nation
Thats how you win

Who’s Voice is in your head /
(In the ether)
Track Name: CRAZY
When I get what I want, I don’t want it no more
You gave me a taste when I wanted a pour
Cuz I can’t have you I want you more

I makes me feel crazy
Cuz I been holding on
To you baby
You’ve been moving on
But I still love you
Crazy, crazy

You told me "we're friends"
You told me thats all
I took a step back
Then you built the wall
Who am I when you don’t call no more?

I makes me feel crazy
Cuz I been holding on
To you baby
You’ve been moving on
But I still love you
Crazy, crazy

I miss feeling sad sometimes
Cuz your love gives me life
Baby your love gives me life

Does that make me crazy?
Cuz I been holding on
To you baby
You’ve been moving on
But I still love you
Crazy, crazy
