Soft pop and easy listening for a successful career
Music mainly started to enthral O’Sullivan when he was at university in Swindon, England, after moving from Ireland. There he played in his first bands, among them a band called Rick’s Blues, which was founded by Rick Davies who ended up founding Supertramp. It was there that O’Sullivan refined his drum and piano-playing technique and realised music was the thing for him to pursue. Already in the mid-60s, his career started to take off; he mainly got the attention of avant-garde enthusiasts as his music fitted right into the genre. However, it wasn’t until 1970 that he could celebrate a national and international breakthrough with his single "Nothing Rhymed", which made the top 10 in the UK charts, but also rocketed to number 1 in the Netherlands. Shortly after, his debut album was released and his path into stardom was cemented. His hit "Alone Again (Naturally)", released two years later, was the one that catapulted the talented musician into worldwide fame, as it didn’t only reach number 1 in the US Billboard Charts, but also retained the position for six weeks in a row. From then on, his songs popped up in the charts regularly, and until today, the musician is far from being done.
