"The big finish line is moving all the time," Regina O'Brien sings on the lead track to her sophomore CD "Switchyard Lullaby." The album, which has been almost four years in the making, may have felt like a moving target for the veteran of the Ithaca music scene, but the result - lush, warm and intimate - rewards listeners. " -- The Ithaca Journal


“Like the songs of Neil Young, O’Brien’s tunes are simple, but not simple-minded. Over acoustic guitar and tasteful backing parts, her voice comes through loud and clear on parlor-sized tunes like “Epiphany Girl”, “Once in a While” and “Double Life.” The playing is spare and tasteful; nothing gets in the way of O’Brien’s plaintive, sweet vocals and efficient writing style.” – The Ithaca Times 


“…Regina O’Brien has won the admiration of many of her fellow musicians with her homespun songs and winsome singing style” – The Ithaca Journal
