Dublin, County Dublin
Dublin based glam-pop artist Jack Rua is a unique and original talent. A classically trained vocalist and musician who blends well crafted pop music with electronic-dance and glam-rock influences, Jack has established himself as an artist who strives to differ from the norm and do things his own way.
Inspired by some of the most ambitious and creative artists of the last fifty years, Jack spent his formative years studying the work of icons such as David Bowie, Madonna, Lady Gaga & Prince; analysing their every move and how they used their art forms to innovate and rebel.
After releasing a string of internationally lauded solo singles and collaborations, Jack released his debut mini album Narcissus on the 26th of June 2020 to rave reviews from media outlets with Tony Clayton Lea of the Irish Times dubbing it a "glorious, serious mini album with maximum clout", and Kate Brayden of Hot Press calling it a "complete reimagining of the pop-sphere". A celebratory and scrutinising account of coming of age as a young queer person, Narcissus peaked in the top 5 of the Irish iTunes album charts and currently has over 100,000 streams on Spotify.
