O’Leary has done what I never thought I would hear: a wonderfully new, electrically charged version of the poet dearest to the heart of many of us.
Poet & Writer, Chair in English at Boston College former poetry editor for America magazine
currently writing a biography of Hopkins
O'Leary has been compared to Dylan and Johnny Cash. His eclectic sound incorporates chants and hymn-like compositions. A woodlark even sings in Hopkins' onomatopoeic homage to that bird.
