Daisy pays tribute to O’Neal’s late grandmother Daisy O’Neal who both influenced and nurtured his musical endeavors. It expresses a multi-faceted array of compilations, polished flavor and much more. On it, he exploits his versatility with the explosive composition called Daisy the title track from this newly release sophomore CD, later bringing you down a notch with the melodic sound of the tune “No Words Necessary” which symphonically takes you on a magical journey of self expression without words. The song titled Mesmerized is one of his personal favorite musical productions, which sustains an array of positive energies from all who embark upon it. It is purely what its title proclaims “mesmerizing.”
You haven’t engaged in musical solace until you’ve pick up a copy of Brian O’Neal’s “Daisy.” It’s a timeless collection of harmonious bliss that you certainly do not want to miss.
