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 singer-songwriter

Since Kyabram will be re-released Nov 16th, and available via the Warners store, and usual outlets.The record will be available on vinyl for the first time, and the CD version has been packaged into a deluxe 6 panel digipak, that includes a 20 page booklet with lyrics, and new retrospective liner notes by the artist, giving insights into the recording of each song, and the build up to the making of the record.
To celebrate the re-release of his classic 2004 debut, O’Rourke will take members of the original band around Ireland this December for a handful of nostalgic, and uplifting shows. Including Galileo, No Brakes, Sarah, Love Is The Way, and Marrying The Sea, the band will play the entire album, along with outakes, and a few surprises!
O’Rourke is one of the rare breed, he arrived fully formed, his songs, and delivery belie his age, and ours. He’s a timeless troubadour with a voice that breaks through all your defenses and gets to the heart of the matter. One of the true greats of our island.”Glen Hansard Oscar-winning singer-songwriter
