Portrait of Esther O’Connor, Songstress Supreme, Potential Jazz Queen

ACRYLIC PORTRAIT OF SINGER/SONGWRITER ESTHER O’CONNOR

Forget Simon Cowell and the X Factor. Scottish singer/songwriter Esther O’Connor has done it her way, and these days that’s a breath of fresh air. The daughter of Graeme Duffin, bassist with Wet, Wet, Wet, Esther has her own band, Ashton Lane.

It’s been said that Esther has a “hard to classify style”. Yet she’s equally at home with pop, country, rock and folk. The Sunday Times said of her “She is a talent that harks back to the great singer songwriters of the 60’s and 70’s.

So why not Jazz, Esther?

JAZZ&JAZZ PORTRAIT OF ESTHER

Esther Enthrals Her Fans

Hail the new kid on the block,
No chip, but pure golden rock.
A musical queen and songstress supreme,
Thrillingly fulfilling her dream.

I mulled over painting a portrait of Esther for some time, wanting to be sure I could capture her in enraptured performance. Then, watching and listening to her, discovering her values and following her rise to stardom as both singer and song writer, I could resist no longer.
