Declan O'Rourke

ticket link"He 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 (Apr 2012)

"To me, Declan is not a songwriter within the ordinary definition of the word. He is a sorcerer of songs, with a Dickensian skill for finding the moment that details some aspect of our humanity."

- Brendan Graham, Hot Press Magazine (Mar 2012)

"He is a phenomenal writer, singer, musician and entertainer. I can't do justice to his talent in words. I don't say that very often, but in this case it is true."

- Maura O'Connell, Nashville Scene (Mar 2012)

"There is something so simple but overwhelmingly power (sic) about the melodies and emotive storytelling. [Since Kyabram] is an album I will listen to for the rest of my life and will probably never tire of."

- Edith Bowman, BBC Radio
