Independent music company ONErpm Nashville is proud to announce the signing of Grammy Award-winning Americana artists Mark and Maggie O’Connor, who will be releasing their latest album Life After Life with supporting videos, starting this summer and continuing throughout the year. The lead single, featuring a new arrangement of the traditional Ukrainian Folk Song “Verbovaya Doschechka,” and an accompanying video will be distributed by ONErpm on all platforms over the next few weeks.
Mark O’Connor, a three-time Grammy winner, is a legendary multi-instrumentalist famous for his work on violin and acoustic guitar. His wife, Maggie, a talented violinist in her own right who earned her Grammy by playing bluegrass with the O’Connor Band, plays violin and sings lead on the forthcoming album, while Mark adds harmonies and plays acoustic guitar, violin and mandolin.
As Mark, a seven-time CMA Musician of the Year, explains, “We have a collection of new Americana songs we’ve written—the tracks were recorded in Nashville with bass and drums and feature us singing and playing our fiddles, guitars and mandolins. We are excited to work with ONErpm and Tim Wipperman to distribute our project, Life After Life!”
“It is an honor to team up with the O’Connors,” says Wipperman, managing director of ONErpm’s Nashville office. “We are astounded by their many talents and musical creativity. It’s been eight years since their last joint project, and we know their fans are ready for new music.”
In addition to the forthcoming album, you can catch the O’Connors on tour with their new material booked by Skyline Artists, watch their upcoming specials on PBS and check out their annual concert hall attraction, An Appalachian Christmas.
