From the remote Washington farm life to the bustling Austin folk life; so goes the story of the personified ray of sunshine that is Daisy O’Connor. From the time her bootheels landed in Austin, she’s been one of the hardest working and hardest touring musicians on the street and one of the biggest champions of other musicians and their journey here in the Live Music Capital. Her warmth and charisma radiate from her voice and six-string, flowing what she calls Folkadelic Queer Pop out to world unapologetically. The casual-yet-calculated blending of genres ranging from country to pop to rock from her debut full-length Lightchasers continues with her latest effort, “Mixtape,” a four-song EP where each track possesses its own identity, but work together to fit into a mini-quilt befitting O’Connor’s talent as a multi-genre musician. “Cult of Two” is a fun pop-rock song that has O’Connor shaking out her mullet to the tune of lightly-fuzzed guitars and dynamic vocal tricks all laced together with a poppy melody that’ll keep your head boppin’.
