Cork songwriter Jack O’Rourke is one of Ireland’s most exciting new emerging talents - his music has been compared to that of Kate Bush, Sufjan Stevens, Randy Newman and Father John Misty. Piano, plaintive baritone and ethereal falsetto characterise O’Rourke’s musicality as he pushes the boundaries of noir folk with heartbreaking torch songs intermingled with baroque pop.
