For the last two years, Christopher ORiley has devoted much of his time to playing classically-inspired renditions of Radiohead and its turned out to be a sound investment.
ORiley is pleased that the bands members have told him theyre excited about what hes doing for their music but he also likes the reaction hes getting from serious music fans, such as the Beethoven buff who called into a radio show to thank him for introducing him ...to the music of Mr. Head.
On April 12, ORiley will release his second CD of Radiohead interpretations, Hold Me To This. Although he thinks trying to repeat himself is ...a terrible idea, he admits he cant help it because Radiohead songs are the music he appreciates most right now.
Other modern composers are also leaving a noteworthy mark on ORiley, who is currently working on a classical album featuring songs by Good Will Hunting songwriter Elliot Smith.
