Jack O’Rourke

The lone figure of Jack O’Rourke hunched over piano keys and moody synths,  is one that Irish gig goers are becoming more accustomed to seeing. Whether performing his startlingly honest ballads solo or driving Spectorish rock with his band, Jack’s plaintive baritone, ethereal falsetto and piano are core. His songs speak of the human conditional with poetic flair – ( “a nifty lyricist”, Tony Clayton Lea ), melodic flair and inventive arrangements. Flattering comparisons have been made to Bowie, Kate Bush, John Grant, Emmylou Harris and The National in his eclectic style – yet Jack has carved his own musical landscape and songwriting voice., more distinctive, with each release.

 

 

Karen Underwood

“Karen Underwood’s powerful voice, warm personality and depth of feeling bring out the best in everything from jumping hard bop to poignant ballads.” IRISH INDEPENDENT

 

 

Marlene Enright

“The rich rub of strong, melodic radio-friendly pop on “Underbelly” and the forthcoming “Alchemy” bring the beautiful tones of Enright’s voice very much to the fore. She releases her debut album “Placemats and Second Cuts” in 2017 and that’s definitely one to keep an ear out for.” – Jim Carroll, The Irish Times

“One of Ireland’s most promising musicians” – Nialler 9

‘123’ finds Marlene Enright moving into a sound that feels uniquely her own. – The Last Mixed Tape

 

St Caoilian
