The Portfolio Composer

Nov 14, 2016

The O'Neill Brothers have sold over 10 million copies of their piano music and have released 50 CDs of their relaxing, signature piano style all on their own, without the help of a major record label. Tim & Ryan have performed for several governors, US Presidents and have toured with pop superstar Deborah Gibson, as well as Katie McMahon, the original voice of Riverdance. They continue to shift their business to keep up with the ever-changing opportunities in the music industry.
