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

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

"Oodles of soul, blues and jazz, all wrapped up with a striking modern pop bow." - The Irish Times

"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
