"Who starts a concert with a minute of joyful silence? A genius like Lynn O'Brien, that’s who. After the silence she started in with an a cappella world beat piece like an acoustic tUnE-yArDs number but more accessible. Lynn led the sold out crowd at the Hook and Ladder into her space so comfortably she turned it into a shared space. She wordlessly brought the audience in to clap and sing with a call and repeat gesture. She has such a good feel for when to be loud, when to be soft and when to sing nothing at all... We were hooked."

"This show had great flow and felt very well put together. O’Brien satisfied her reputation as a unique performer and clearly has a purpose that extends well beyond simple entertainment."
- Patrick Dunn, Concert Communicator
"I know talent when I hear it. And Lynn O'Brien has it. O'Brien has a rich, textured contralto, and her timing is impeccable... her vocals display impressive control."

"Lynn O'Brien is a fantastic singer-songwriter-pianist in the vein of Regina Spektor, with a bit of Nellie McKay and Norah Jones thrown in - performing for quickly-growing and highly-appreciative crowds. Lynn is, rather remarkably, a self-taught musician. Her voice is really what sets her apart. She tinkles the ivories, lays down beautiful and very interesting vocals, asks the audience to sing along, and basically makes everyone in the room fall in love with her-- all with the greatest of ease,"

"This lady has not only a voice, but a personality, of gold. Accompanied by ukulele and now a well-mastered vocal looper, O'Brien's music is overflowing with originality and optimism. I have few doubts about the success of her dream; she has already convinced me that almost anything is possible."
