Daisy O’Connor is a former social worker and Austin singer-songwriter who’s devoted her time to Hill Country flood relief, Austin domestic violence shelter SafePlace, and a benefit compilation for Standing Rock. That empathetic streak runs through her debut album, Lightchasers. The record eases into gear with the title track, an unhurried folk-pop hybrid built on a bed of synths and O’Connor’s light-chasing harmonies. The natural imagery is a good fit–this is patient, quietly-built music.
“Lightchasers” appears on Lightchasers, out February 3. Daisy O’Connor plays an album release show at the Cactus Cafe on February 3.
