Jack O'Rourke

County Cork

Jack O’Rourke is a singer songwriter whose music has been described by Fiachna O' Braonáin of RTE Radio 1 as having “...a grace and a glory to it that will stop you in your tracks and make you forget where you were going...Beautiful honest songwriting delivered with a transporting musicality that will take you there... wherever you are going!”. Not just stripped down confessionals on an acoustic guitar, Jack’s music is startlingly honest with his plaintive baritone, ethereal falsetto and beautiful piano playing at the core. If you miss Bowie or love The National then you’ll love Jack’s music. Beautiful songs are at the centre of what he does. His single “Silence” was not only chosen as the anthem for the Yes Equality Campaign but it also won the prestigious first place prize in the International Songwriting Competition judged by Tom Waits and Bill Withers amongst others. 2017 was also to see the release of his skillfully delivered and beautifully produced debut album “Dreamcatcher” to critical acclaim and chart success. He is proving increasingly popular and he has been playing his music to growing audiences, embarking on a nationwide tour which included sold out dates in Whelans and the Everyman Theatre, sharing stages with Irish musical Icons Glen Hansard and Declan O’Rourke and playing at festivals from Electric Picnic to Other Voices. With his beautiful melodies that you just won’t be able to forget, Jack O’Rourke is set for superstardom.
