ATLANTA - Feb. 22, 2015 - PRLog -- Origins is an 11 song journey. The concept of the album melodically, musically, and lyrically combines Irish music, the roots of Old Time Country, Folk and Bluegrass. Origins is a musical map of the evolution of Irish music as it emigrated across the ocean and incorporated a variety of new influences in the place it now calls home.

John Breen's voice is the appropriate instrument; he isn't afraid of singing a slow ballad, or drawing hard on old time country or contemporary Celtic folk to sing about something with a broad resonance. Some of these tracks bear the marks of their rich history, while others somehow are surprisingly contemporary. John has a pure powerful singing style traditional of the likes of the legendary Ronnie Drew but infused with a bit of Ernest Tubb, an echo of a 1970 Kris Kristofferson and the ghost of Johnny Cash.

Origins features John Breen: vocals/guitar, Stevie Hawkins: vocals/percussion, Tim Crouch: Fiddle, Mandolin, Acoustic Guitar, Acoustic Bass, Banjo, Dulcimer and Djembe, Pete Johnson: Pedal Steel Guitar, Cotton Rainey: Dobro and Resonator Guitar, Sara Burke: Celtic Harp. Eamonn Byrne: Irish Tin Whistle and Overton, Jerry Price: Acoustic Guitar and Hammered Dulcimer. Kyla Cassidy: Background Vocals.

Released February 23, 2015, Origins will be available for purchase at Google Play, iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, emphasisrecords.com, johnbreenmusic.com and atlantamusicgroup.com.
