Damian Rourke has just finished his self-titled second album!! With musical influences like RUSH, Simon & Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, Jimi Hendrix and more, the long-awaited LP features new, original songs performed, arranged, written and produced by Damian. It has feel-good melodies for every listener while lyrics explore life and love with all of it's pleasures and challenges. He is hoping to bring his career as a performer / songwriter to a wider audience and is planning to reach all areas of Ontario with the release of “Damian Rourke”. This past summer Damian was a featured performer at both the Leamington Tomato Festival and the Belle River Sunsplash Festival.

Damian discovered the guitar at the age of fifteen. After having played classical guitar and being a member of a high school cover band, he started his own songwriting and first entered the studio at the age of eighteen to record his first demo. Gaining experience playing live, in the studio, and being in and out of bands, he ultimately decided to concentrate on a solo career.

In December 2004, Damian released his debut solo album entitled “Up the Down Escalator”. Showing great versatility and creativity, the songs on this album are vibrant, colourful and genuine. He has been working to promote his name around the Windsor area, his album “Up the Down Escalator”, and his newest material by playing local venues and selling this LP. In July ‘06, Damian was selected by Border City Radio to have two songs from this album featured in their bi-monthly Podcast.

“Damian Rourke” will be an excellent follow-up to his debut release, reaching more listeners than before. Appropriately titled, this album is a much closer look at what Damian is about.
