Singer Songwriter from Donegal, Ireland. Rory’s journey began as lead singer of indie-rock band ‘The Revs’, who found themselves topping the Irish charts with two top 5 albums and a string of successful tours making waves throughout Ireland, Europe and even reaching Australia with a top 30 single. After the bands split in 2007 Rory moved to a remote island in the Canaries where he opened a live music venue ‘The Island Bar’. It was here the Donegal songwriter performed weekly residency shows building up a cult following of people from all over the world that would travel to the island to come and see him perform. It was also here that Rory & The Island was born and he began his solo project. Two albums, later Rory independently earned himself 8 top 30s, 2 top 10s and a number 1 single in the Irish charts. As well as performed all over the UK and Ireland supporting the likes of Ocean Colour Scene, Feeder and Alabama 3. 2019 saw Rory leave the island return back to Ireland and extensively tour, filling out rooms around the UK and Ireland with his London show at The Dublin Castle selling out within 48 hours of going on sale. With the live circuit being non existent Rory has since been performing weekly residency shows titled ‘Lockdown Sessions’ on Facebook live each Saturday reaching 81,000 people organically at its peak, making new music and waiting for some form of normality to resume.
