The debut EP from Jack O'Rourke - released 19th June 2015.

"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 and the rest are close behind. Beautiful honest songwriting delivered with a transporting musicality that will take you there... wherever you are going!' Fiachna ó Braonáin

"Wonderful songs, beautifully written, performed and presented by Jack O Rourke (a distant cousin perhaps)" Declan O Rourke

"A big, bold, large-scale production that commits completely to the full-bodied timbre of Jack O’Rourke’s rich vocal and the dramatic sound of the music itself, ‘Naivety’ is a striking, attention grabbing single from the artist." - The Last Mixed Tape

"A dramatic, string-driven thing with oodles of atmosphere. This is BIG folks." - RTE Ten

"A gorgeous voice from Cork, the wonderful songwriter, Jack O Rourke", Maria McKee
