Declan O'Rourke is a highly successful Irish artist, acclaimed by his peers, and having achieved many plaudits with his five albums released to date.

Declan's soulful music, rooted in folk and trad, has attracted the praise of countless industry giants, including John Prine, and Paul Weller, among others.

The Dubliner's legend John Sheahan, declared recently that, after 50 years I have decided it's time to put a lid on the 'The Dubliners,' but I'm sure you'll all agree that with Declan, and Damien (Dempsey), the future is in good hands.

O'Rourke's songwriting style moves faultlessly between impressionism, and story telling, 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.

Daily Telegraph: A performer of great promise. His best tool is his voice, a relaxed and roughed edge instrument so distinctive that if it suddenly came on the radio, you'd be impatient to know who owned it

The Sun : A willingness to vary his sound, painstaking attention to detail and a real depth to his lyrics. A breathtaking whole...

Uncut Magazine : It's the storytelling and melodic felicity of his songs that really mark him out.
