Jack capped off 2016 with a blistering performance at "Other Voices", paying tribute to the recently departed Leonard Cohen with Glen Hansard and Hattie Webb (Cohen's collaborator) which was filmed for the series. He joined Mundy, John Sheehan and Lisa Lambe live on RTE 1's New Year's Eve televised celebration, ringing in the New Year with his contemporary interpretations of "Down by the Glenside" and "Song for Ireland."

2017 looks promising as Jack continues to promote his debut album, with more singles to be released, as well as collaborations with electronic duo, FreezerRoom. Writing has begun for his followup...

“Dreamcatcher is an album that knows when to swing for the fences, see the bombastic joie de vivre of the baroque-pop masterpiece ‘Naivety’ or the fun fuzz-laden nod of the head to Bowie ‘Iggy’, and to opt for a more nuanced restrained sound, look to the weighty strings and pensive piano of ‘Silence’. 9/10.”

— The Last Mixed Tape

Jack O’ Rourke’s music has a grace and a glory to it that will stop you in your tracks and make you forget where you were going! “Silence” is one of the songs of the year for me.. “I’ll Forget You In The Morning” took me away too .... Beautiful honest songwriting delivered with a transporting musicality that will take you there... wherever you are going!”

— Fiachna O' Braonáin, RTE Radio 1

“Jack O’Rourke is one of Ireland’s most exciting new emerging talents”

— I.M.R.O. ( Irish Music Rights Organisation) Ireland



Marlene Enright’s solo debut showcases her passions and influences. Written and recorded over a year, the result is a melange of the heavy grooves of RnB, the warmth and nostalgia of great folk songs and the richness of thickly layered harmonies. It is the sound of modern roots music, evolved as it has over decades to something that is unmistakably 21st Century, while still carrying echoes of the past.
