“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, Mojo Magazine (Apr 2012)
“Classic sounding […] literate, grown-up pop […] colored with subtle, finger-picked acoustic guitar and O’Rourke’s warm, enveloping voice”
– Eric Danton, The Wall Street Journal (August 2013)
“Virtuosity […] and meticulous dynamics”
– Jon Pareles (Chief Popular Music Critic), The New York Times (Apr 2013)
