Declan O’Rourke is a highly successful Irish artist, acclaimed by his peers. His soulful music, rooted in folk and trad, has attracted the praise of countless industry giants, including John Prine, and Paul Weller.
O’Rourke’s songwriting style moves faultlessly between impressionism, and storytelling, and can be at home in almost any form. A dynamic performer, he is at once as comfortable fronting a 50-piece orchestra, as playing solo with a guitar. Songs of Declan’s have been covered by a growing list of established artists ranging from Christy Moore to Eddi Reader and Josh Groban.
