Our New Video Cut and Salute to Our Men and Women in Uniform

 Respect is so well deserved for this entertainer extraordinaire. RIP

What’s Up With That
The acoustic/electric final production 2011
By Shane O’Brien
Directed by Edward Lapple

Look Forward to a Production insight by Shane O’Brien to be published right here soon…

Comment from Director Edward Lapple:

“What’s Up With That?” is a truly powerful blues/rock song, written and sung by Shane O’Brien. It is a salute to all US Veterans and an insightful question about how we honor them. This presentation starts out acoustically and then thunders into Shane and his band “O’Brien’s Edge” live at the Legendary Whisky a Go Go. Intermixed with the heart moving performance are iconic images which Shane picked to best reinforce the message of this song.
Shane has long been referred to as “The Genuine One” and “What’s Up With That?” on many different levels expresses his feeling about the way that our nation treats its true heroes and it challenges every one of us to consider “What’s Up With That?” Shane is a multiple award winning song-smith and this heartfelt presentation showcases him at his best, both as a story teller and a Rock and Roller. It has never been easy to express outrage at social injustice and, at the same time to make it Rock. With “What’s Up With That?” Shane joins the small group of artists who have pulled that rabbit out of their hats.

  1. What’s up with that is a title to my video that has had at least three different renditions during the journey in development phases. The releasing of the stages of the videos edits as individually valued accomplishments on my part as the author couldn’t be resisted. I admit it. It was such a cool ride to see the whole thing develop from concept to the final concluded story telling music video it had become. It has also become apparent to me that the confusions of the same general appearance from the video imagery at the beginning could easily lead someone into thinking I’ve scene this before. But make no mistake about how it took all three varieties in order of production to achieve the final resulting video.
    Now that being brought forth for consideration by prospective viewers, perhaps after viewing the final version might influence some proud Americans to thank someone the next time paths are crossed, who knows. As for me, let me make it perfectly clear… To all our Men and Woman who have served our great Nation from past times to current time, I thank You all.

    Re the last ten years of music delivered to you from Shane

    My musical life is pretty much shown in a great way at these 2 links, at least in several audio and musical video viewpoints. Through modern technology anyone with enough drive can do the same. I am glad I did what it takes to express my music and the stories the songs tell. I am extra greatfull that you and others have allowed this post to exist in your worlds. I feel truly honored… Shane O’Brien

    More good news re Our Music and Prospects…
    We have 2 songs submissions into the 2011_2012 International Songwriters Competition [ISC].

    Winners are decided by a panel of judges from a wide variety of the music industry and not directly from any public involvement. So hopefully you can see this note from me to you is an expression of thanks, that’s it… and nothing else. From your longstanding support given to my musical efforts, you are and always have been the best to me and will never ever be forgoten. Which is the basis for this email and post, therefor I share these links that I regard as accomplishments with you all with my gratitude.
