Declan O’Rourke: Since Kyabram 20th Anniversary

Declan O’Rourke makes a welcome return to Kings Place, this time celebrating the 20th anniversary of his debut album ‘Since Kyabram’.


In October 2004, amongst a thriving Dublin music scene Declan O’Rourke’s debut album Since Kyabram was released. In its first week, Since Kyabram entered the charts at No.5 and over the following two years achieved gold, platinum and twice platinum status. The album held within it a collection of songs which have grown in popularity over the years. Galileo, Sarah, No Place To Hide, We Didn’t Mean To Go To Sea and Marrying The Sea are amongst the titles which led to award nominations and plaudits from Paul Weller, Eddi Reader, Paul Brady and Snow Patrol. Hot Press voted Since Kyabram their ‘Debut Album of the Year’ and without doubt its release jumpstarted a career which introduced Declan to an audience who have been on this journey with him for 20 years.

‘Since Kyabram is a record I’m very proud of, both as an introductory body of work and a collection of songs individually. After 20 years I’m still hugely nostalgic for it and love that it has become a favourite for so many others. To celebrate and release Kyabram all over again, this time with a deeper dive inside the tapes, is going to be such a trip. Being fully immersed in the music once more for just a handful of special 20th Anniversary concerts will also be a very exciting!’ Declan O’Rourke 2024

This event will last approximately 2 hours 30 minutes, including an interval.

Reviews

‘Declan O’Rourke is one of the best songwriters on the planet.’ Eddi Reader 

‘He writes the sort of classic songs that people don’t write anymore, songs that sound like they’ve been around forever […] Listen to Galileo, which is possibly the greatest song written in the last 30 years.’ Paul Weller 

‘Declan O’Rourke is one of the rare breed, he arrived fully formed. His songs and delivery belie his age, and ours. He is a timeless troubadour with a voice that breaks through all your defenses and gets to the heart of the matter. One of the true greats of our island.’ Glen Hansard
