"Press Quotes"

"Heartfelt vocals..confident melodies.. gorgeous...
Faithfield consistantly seeks beauty in everyday matters"


....Songs that uplift the human spirit and encourage individualism as in "Dance your own dance and sing your own song". That's Rory Faithfield in a nutshell.....

John O'Regan ROCK'N'REEL Magazine age kind of guy...Faithfield writes a nice lyric and his music is positive and, at times, irreverent. The punk influence is not entirely hidden: a lot of his songs are short up tempo affairs, kind of ‘power acoustic’ if you like....

...invigorating and inspiring...

Peter Crawley - IRISH TIMES

...a strength that will inspire and move you with jolts of positive energy.
This is great music that has character, purity, and mindfulness that is rarely found in recordings today. The spirit of humanity is written all over this CD.

Keith Hannaleck- immense talent and a collection of songs that simply blew me away. I've heard this style of music from independent artists all over the world. Most of it is bland and many times boring for lack of originality. Rory Faithfield is an exception to that experience.

Michael Allison -

....aside from the inherent message, you will hear an artist capable of conveying immeasurable emotion and power. Sounding a bit like Brian Ferry of Roxy Music, Rory Faithfield shows much more than mere promise....It would be impossible to listen and not believe that here is an artist ready to break loose.
Rory Faithfield is an artist I will be following closely.

Jack Baer -

Out of ‘Nowhere Somewhere Anywhere’ this is destined for the middle and the best.

Gareth Gorman, LAM Magazine, London

....with singer-songwriters 10 a penny, it's refreshing and rather rare to find one who actually seems to know what he is doing.....
......this is really rather promising, remember where you heard it first.

Will Fulford-Jones, TNT Magazine, London - Various





An attitude of exploration, demonstrated by a childhood spent "digging up stuff in the backyard", and early years playing in garage punk bands around Sydney Australia, led to a move to Ireland where songs became the obsession. After writing and developing his craft amongst the heavily populated singer-songwriter scene in Dublin, Rory started quietly slipping off to mainland Europe, touring solo acoustic, refining and expanding his repertoire with literally hundreds of gigs and continues to tour regularly both in Australia and Ireland.

Described by one journalist as "a strength that will move and inspire you with jolts of positive energy", 1998 saw the UK-only release of his debut album and first single 'NOWHERE SOMEWHERE ANYWHERE', recorded in Dublin.

Rory's second album, 'BLOOD, BONES & SOUL', was also recorded in Dublin, with Bill Shanley and Ciaran Byrnes sharing production duties at 'The Cauldron Studios'. An uplifting and energised set of songs featuring the metaphysical imagery of 'SHED MY SKIN' and the invigorating 'RISE ABOVE'. The Irish Times observed that his “relentlessly upbeat folk-rock courses with positive thinking and surges with vigorous musicality....Faithfield is invigorating and inspiring....”

In 2007, Rory Faithfield returns to the Cauldron Studios for the recording of his third album 'CIRCLE DANCE'. A fundamentally solo acoustic project that conveys the true energy of his live shows. The intriguing 'CLONARD' opens the album, which, as explained on Rory's My Space Blog, was a gift delivered fully formed in a dream where the Irish folk legend, Christy Moore, was witnessed entertaining a sing-along crowd in a backstreet pub. The mystery and profound intent of these songs unfolds as the album progresses and will prove to be Rory's most successful project to date.
