Since the release of his first studio album in 2004, Since Kyabram, Declan O’Rourke has gained a reputation for being one of Ireland’s greatest singer-songwriters. With his velvety voice and captivating interpretations, he has played to packed-out venues in Ireland, Britain, Australia and the US. He returns to Paris for this acoustic concert in the intimate setting of the CCI and will charm us with ballads and pop-folk titles taken from Since Kyabram as well as his recent albums Big Bad Beautiful World (2007) and Mag Pai Zai (2011).
“[Declan O’Rourke]… writes the sort of classic songs that people don’t write anymore, songs that sound like they’ve been around forever. Listen to Galileo, which is possibly the greatest song written in the last 30 years.” Paul Weller, Mojo Magazine
