James Kevin O’Connor has developed an amazing personal brand with his faith and his musical artistry at center stage. His sense of himself is harmoniously in sync with the world around him. As you’ll see from our conversation – and from the track he plays for me during our interview – he is as complex as his lyrics and as strong in his resolve to live out his dharmic, creative plan, to its very (sweet) end. If you’re a speaker, he can craft a branded musical theme song for you. And he’s a chaplain, so in addition to having a soul, he has a feel for yours!
