Declan O'Rourke
Declan O'Rourke
Declan O’Rourke is a critically acclaimed singer and songwriting from Dublin, Ireland. Jon Pareles of The New York Times said there was virtuosity in his guitar playing, with ‘intricately contrapuntal picking and meticulous dynamics,’ and that his calling was as a balladeer. Paul Weller said of O’Rourke’s song ‘Galileo’ that it’s possibly the greatest song written in the last thirty years.

Declan plays to sold-out crowds in his native Ireland and regularly tours in Europe, America and Australia. A consummate and versatile performer, his songs mesmerize, whether performed solo, with a band, a string quartet, or full concert orchestra.

In 2013, O’Rourke released his third studio album Mag Pai Zai, which made it into The Irish Times’ “101 Irish Albums to Hear Before You Die.”
Mag Pai Zai was O’Rourke’s first record to be released Stateside. Specially re-packaged and mastered for US audiences, Mag Pai Zai (US-edition) garnered critical acclaim from such national media outlets as the The Wall Street Journal, American Songwriter, NPR’s World Café, USA Today and Mountain Stage.
Last year, O’Rourke decided to try something completely new by releasing a new digital-only track every month absolutely free through his mailing list and social media platforms. He called the project Howlin’ Lowly Moons, and through it he has released some of the best recordings of his career, directly to fans and absolutely free.

O’Rourke will release his unnamed fourth studio album this October, largely composed of the Howlin’ Lowly Moons songs, gathered together for the first time in a beautifully-packaged CD and limited-run vinyl. Also a first, the new album will be exclusively sold through Declan’s website, and will be available to pre-purchase in July 2015.
Singer/songwriter Jessy Tomsko has a love for music that stretches back to early childhood. With her self-penned lyrics and catchy melodies, Jessy celebrates life and love in her acoustic renditions brought to life on the stage and in the studio.

Jessy's work is infused with a lightness and warmth that is equally embodied in her live performances. Maintaining a busy performance schedule, she has played at such prominent venues as Rockwood Music Hall and The Bitter End in NYC and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as well as major events such as the Cape May Singer/Songwriter Festival, the Wave Gathering Music Festival in Asbury Park, and the Beta Hi-Fi Emerging Artist Festival at World Cafe Life (presented by WXPN). She has also had the honor of sharing the stage with such notable artists as Ari Hest, David Berkeley, James Maddock, Amber Rubarth, and Matt Sucich.
