Dublin busker has 3 Irish top 10 LPs, evokes Rufus Wainwright & Glen Hansard, & Paul Weller said his Galileo is "possibly the greatest song written in the last 30 years." 
Iron Horse Music Hall

Declan O'Rourke is long overdue for a stateside breakthrough. The Dublin-based singer-songwriter has three Irish top 10 albums under his belt and a way with words and strings that's earned him comparisons to Rufus Wainwright and Glen Hansard, plus staggeringly high praise from Paul Weller, who said his "Galileo" is "possibly the greatest song written in the last 30 years." (The album that delivered that rare gem is Mag Pai Zai).
