The violinist of Dexy's Midnight Runners from 1982 until 1987, Helen O'Hara has continued to explore a variety of outlets for her musical creativity. In addition to accompanying such artists as Graham Parker, Tanita Tikaram, and Mary Coughlin, O'Hara has garnered acclaim for her solo work. Her debut solo album, Southern Hearts, featured contributions by keyboardist Nicky Hopkins and David Bowie's long-time drummer Woody Woodmansey.
O'Hara composed and performed "Because of You," the theme song of popular BBC television series, Brush Strokes. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi
