Sinead O'Connor Biography
BORN: December 8, 1966, Dublin, Ireland
Sinéad O'Connor has been a revolutionary force in popular music for more than a decade and now, Atlantic Records is proud to release an extraordinary new work from the acclaimed and always outspoken artist. faith and courage - O'Connor's highly anticipated label debut and first all new, full-length album in six years - is a strikingly expressive collection of songs that traverse the human experience, touching on such universals as love and lust, respect and responsibility, strength and spirit.
From the anthemic self-determination of the album's first single, "No Man's Woman," to the evocative and poignant "Daddy I'm Fine," O'Connor blends edgy pop, sepulchral dub, space-age electronica, and street-smart R&B into her own special sonic brew. Sinéad is an artist who has always avoided being been trapped by musical boundaries and on faith and courage she is assisted in her musical journey by a breath-taking lineup of producer/artists, including Eurythmics' Dave Stewart; Brian Eno and John Reynolds; Wyclef Jean; On U Sound's Adrian Sherwood and Skip MacDonald; Marius deVries (Madonna, Björk) and Ashtar Command; Ednaswap's Scott Cutler and Ann Preven; and Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs (Mariah Carey, TLC, Destiny's Child). With O'Connor's magnificent voice and vision ringing clearly throughout, faith and courage is as vibrant, passionate, and unique as the woman whose name it bears.
Sinéad O'Connor made her debut in 1987 with the RIAA-gold certified THE LION AND THE COBRA, followed in 1990 by the #1 US/UK smash, I DO NOT WANT WHAT I HAVEN'T GOT. The RIAA double platinum album - which included the platinum-certified smash recording of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U" - appeared on numerous critics' best-of-the-year lists, and in early 1991, Sinead was named "Artist of the Year" by Rolling Stone (whose cover she has graced on three separate occasions). Her rich catalog also includes 1992's AM I NOT YOUR GIRL?, 1994's UNIVERSAL MOTHER, the 1997 GOSPEL OAK EP, and 1997's "Best Of" collection, entitled SO FAR.

The person who intruduced me to you was my mom, about 13 years ago. And I really came to appreciate your music for it's spirituality and reason. Some of the music out there now is telling people that getting high, getting drunk and drive by shootings are cool. Your music opens up a whole other demencion for me, you talk of peace and love and God and that to me is what the world need now. Thank you for your music and for sharing it with the world.

Wow, what a voice and what an expression!
I barely can name a favorite song, 'cause they're simply all good...but still, I think I like most "Last Day of our Acquaintance", "Troy" and last but surely not leas "Scorn not his Simplicity".
Sinéad, keep going on!!!
