I’m a big scaredy-cat,” Camille O’Sullivan declares, explaining how she first turned to singing.
It’s not how one might describe a woman who abandoned a safe career in architecture after a serious car accident to pursue a not so stable life as a singer. But that’s how the Irish-French singer sees herself. Audiences who witness Camille’s stage antics – including being electrocuted and burned after wrapping Christmas lights around herself, stumbling over speakers and landing on glass, teetering on the edge of tables in heels – might disagree.

Captain Eoghan O'Sullivan
On April 4, 2010, it was a tale of two proclamations outside the GPO during the Easter 1916 Rising commemoration ceremony. And as the sun shone and the chill wind blustered up O'Connell Street, Dublin, Captain Eoghan O’Sullivan read from the Irish Proclamation, that passionate call to arms forged amid the white heat of revolution 94 years ago. His voice rang out over the silent crowd of over 2,000 who had gathered along the barriers. "We declare the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland, and to the unfettered control of Irish destinies, to be sovereign and indefeasible," he pronounced, as side-by-side President Mary McAleese and Taoiseach Brian Cowen looked on.

Jim Sullivan, singer
“If Jim Sullivan is a name you've never heard before, you're not alone -- he was always just on the edge of success. Sullivan released his debut album, U.F.O., in 1969 and played to devoted crowds at a regular gig in Malibu, Calif., in the early '70s. Despite hanging out with movie stars, fame eluded him. In 1975, he left Los Angeles, and his wife and son, to head to Nashville; he thought he could catch a break there. But Sullivan never made it to Tennessee -- somewhere in the New Mexico desert, he disappeared, never to be seen again. Now, U.F.O. has been reissued by a small label called Light in the Attic Records.” NPR
Jim Sullivan shared these thoughts on the inside cover of his last album, U.F.O.:
"I was born Aug 13 which makes me a Leo I guess but actually my name is Jim Sullivan, 7th son of a Nebraska farmer that came to the big city during World War II to work in the defense plants."
"I grew up in a government housing project with a bunch of other Oakies and Arkies (…of all sizes and colors) in a fairly clean pile—"
"I decided that I would like to play music when I would sit and listen to the blues groups practicing around various houses—you could even hear the upright piano in the early electric blues groups…"
"I watched the guitar players studiously and then went home to practice "Oakie-Doakie Stomp" by Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown until I had grown callouses on my finger tips and brain."
"At the same time I was going to college and working (so what?). Anyhow me and another guy bought a bar near the college [and used] that for income. We damn near starved to death."
"The bar went broke and I went to work with a few different rock groups, the music got louder and louder. A few years of bangin around went by. I decided to move to L.A. and concentrate on writing and here I am…"
