After interviewing Laura Cortese at the Running Horse way back when, I got chatting to Rob, the landlord and generally nice chap in charge at the venue about coming down to some future shows to talk to the musicians that he had playing. The next one after Laura was Thomas Leeb and following that, came this chap, Marty O'Reilly. Being a long way away from his home in California, on tour in a relatively unfamiliar place, Marty singled Rob out as one of the good ones. He praised him for putting him and his travelling companions up and feeding them well, all to help keep music live and upcoming musicians touring the world. In my opinion, it's all about working together. Marty echoed this during his interview. He spoke to me about his life, music and music in California. I particularly enjoyed listening to his 2014 album 'Pray For Rain' after the show. If you haven't already, check that one out.
