Declan O’Rourke is a critically acclaimed Irish singer songwriter who has worked and performed with many of the world’s top artists, including Snow Patrol, Glen Hansard, John Prine, and the Transatlantic Sessions in an award-winning career that has seen him release 5 studio albums and tour across the globe.
“Declan writes the sort of classic songs that people don’t write anymore, that sound like they’ve been around forever…Listen to Galileo, which is possibly the greatest song written in the last 30 years.” Mojo Magazine.
"Compassion, romance, a sense of mortality and a sense of history run through the songs of Declan
O’Rourke. The gravity of the deliberation in their melodies, their calmly sustained phrases, their
fatalistic undertone - informs his songs, whether they’re about faithful love or reckoning with
elemental forces." Jon Pareles, The New York Times.
