2016 was a phenomenal year for Jack O’Rourke, with the musician releasing one of the most critically acclaimed debut albums of the year. Dreamcatcher includes cinematic torch songs, noir folk and baroque pop creating a singular sound, delivered in a plaintive baritone around the piano. Dreamcatcher reached No.5 in the Irish album charts – just below Drake! Winning in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition for lyrics for the album’s centerpiece ballad, Silence – performed live on The Late Late Show, judged by industry legends Tom Waits and Bill Withers, Jack’s eclectic songs range from the driving euphoric rock of Naivety to the dark Americana of I’ll forget you in the Morning, playlisted on National Radio and chosen for the BBC4’s series, The Great Irish Songbook. 2017 sees Jack O’Rourke setting out his stall with collaborations with Cohen collaborator Hattie Webb from The Webb Sisters as well as critically acclaimed electronica duo FreezerRoom for a future opus. Jack looks forward to playing an intimate solo concert at Clifden Arts Festival.
