Award-winning Irish singer songwriter Declan O’Rourke returns after 2 years with his Paul Weller-produced Arrivals, the most emotionally raw and affecting album of his career.
Arrivals sees Declan O’Rourke present his art in a different yet wholly distinctive manner. The sound is stripped back to Declan’s soulful and resonant voice, the virtuosic guitar playing for which he’s renowned and only the occasional sparse arrangement of strings and late night drums bringing colour and light to the LP’s 10 songs.
Weller, a fan of Declan’s songwriting for some years, also adds his multi-instrumental abilities to the recordings, including a beautiful piano accompaniment to the closing track.
Marked out as a major talent with the release of 2004’s debut Since Kyabram, Declan has produced possibly his finest work to date and this will be a very unique and special show as part of this year’s festival.
