Rasplyn is the solo project of Carolyn O’Neill who uses her experience with classical composition, and as a Clairvoyant Reader and Energy Healer, to create mystical and visual landscapes with her music. Her style is dark and cinematic, beautifully filled with textured layers influenced by world culture and mysterious natural forces. Her compositions bear moments of writhing intensity and flowing release bathed in haunting vocals. Rasplyn’s debut album, ‘Scenes Through the Magic Eye’, explores the realms of her eternal being, looking deeply at the journey her lives have taken throughout history, her spirit evolving each step of the way.

"You can hear the skill and mastery, the authenticity and the courage to break new ground all over these incredibly textured soundscapes…These songs are dynamic, intensely vibrant and full of passion…full of LIFE…if this isn’t an example of experimental music done at its 100% best and most unique, I just don’t know what is." ~Sleepingbag Studios
"To say that this is an essential recording is an understatement. It’s a spinal album, dark and moody, and one that needs to be discovered by all….What would we do if there weren’t artists like Rasplyn making the effort to stretch barriers, and set musical goals that go way over and above the need to be on radio station playlists or popular music charts?" ~ Review Indie
"This is not your average album of music; this is witchcraft for the ears!…it can’t be denied that we are not dealing with normal every day music over here. These tracks that you can hear on this album are like magic spells, which is of course amazingly interesting to hear, but I feel it deserves some warning too. A bit like an ‘explicit content’ sticker but then with ‘magic’ replacing the ‘explicit’." ~Yeah I Know It Sucks
"Rasplyn’s “Scenes Through the Magic Eye” is a multi-dimensional, hypnotic, down-tempo assault on all of your senses. Most mainstream music genres aim their sounds towards capturing the attention of your head, heart or feet -either through appealing musical notes and/or ear-catching words. Rasplyn’s music moves on different wavelengths as she builds layer upon layer of intoxicating soundscapes that pierce your entire being." ~Jamsphere
