Raymond Edward “Gilbert” O’Sullivan is an Irish singer-songwriter who achieved his most significant success during the early 1970s. His songs are often marked by his distinctive, percussive piano playing style and observational lyrics using word play.
Gilbert O’Sullivan was born in Ireland and moved to Swindon, England with his family aged 7. He later became a student at Swindon Art College, specialising in graphic design. But he had another love – music – and after forming and joining local bands as a drummer/vocalist, he started writing his own songs, heavily influenced by The Beatles as writers and Bob Dylan as a performer.
