Declan O'Rourke

About Declan O'Rourke

Irish singer/songwriter Declan O'Rourke combines thoughtful, often poignant lyrics with a folk-driven approach that has brought him great success in his home country. Though born in Dublin, he spent some of his formative years in Australia, which partly served as the inspiration for his double-platinum 2004 debut, Since Kyabram. Over subsequent releases like 2011's Mag Pai Zai and the ambitious 2017 historical set Chronicles of the Great Irish Famine, O'Rourke has cemented his reputation as one of Ireland's premier songwriters, counting greats like Christy Moore, Paul Weller, and the late John Prine among his many admirers. He released his sixth album, Arrivals, in 2021.
