O'Neill was a founding member in the 1990s of the Canadian indie-rock band The Inbreds along with the drummer Dave Ullrich. The Inbreds released four albums between 1992 and their breakup in 1998, and O'Neill has since released three albums as a solo artist. Though he played bass guitar in The Inbreds, he has been predominantly a rhythm guitarist as a solo artist.
In 2007, he appeared in several episodes of Trailer Park Boys' seventh season, playing the hot-tempered Thomas Collins. He also worked behind the scenes on the series for several seasons as the sound mixer.
On October 22, 2008, O'Neill and Ullrich played a one-off Inbreds reunion show in Halifax as part of the 2008 Halifax Pop Explosion.
In 2012, O'Neill released his first solo album in eight years, entitled Wild Lines.
