Cork songwriter Jack O’Rourke has revealed the video to accompany the title track of his upcoming debut album “Dreamcatcher”
The track looks back at a misspent youth as Jack continues to explore his place in the world and lessons learned along the way. Singing of “rattle snakes eyes” and “soulless grey filling stations”, “Dreamcatcher” is a song of hope as his implores his audience “to make my dreams your own, little one”. Jack’s recognisable baritone is magnificent through out the rock and RnB infused track making the most of Hugh Dillon’s ambient guitars and producer Christian Best’s funky drums on this tale of darkness into light.
The video depicts Jack advising a child, his younger self, of the pitfalls and obstacles that lie ahead but also the hope that exists in a future not yet mapped out.
Jack recently joined the likes of Gotya, The Band Perry, Amanda Palmer and Mick Flannery by becoming a winner in the prestigious International Songwriting Competition. Jack’s song ‘Silence’ received first place in the Lyrics Category, judged by industry legends such as Tom Waits and Bill Withers.
Jack O’Rourke is due to perform at Connolly’s of Leap Thursday May 12th
