Biography

Some people were made for music. No matter what other ventures they take, all roads lead them back to music. Vincent O'Rourke is one of those people. He's been singing, arranging, writing, leading, and touring all his life! He's finally releasing his music to the public and I think they'll be surprised. This is his first single titled, “Am I the Only One?” written by Vincent as well. His music is right on track with the current Pop/rock trend. There are driving guitars, danceable rhythms, big vocals, extremely catchy choruses and in your face lyrics. Vincent holds nothing back when it comes to lyrics as he discusses cheating, the love of his life, selfish people, and not giving up.
“When people hear my music, I hope that not only do they listen to the melody, but they also listen to the message. All of my songs have a point that I believe is important for us to think about. So many songs are literally about nothing, or nothing truthful at least. When did that become cool?”
Vincent's first single is about knowing deep down that someone in his family was cheating on their spouse. This is something that unfortunately most of us can relate to.
Amidst the deep lyrics, the music is extremely fun to listen to and sing along with. It's very similar to Maroon5 especially on this first single. His music can be compared to other artists such as The Fray, One Republic, and Relientk. This is an extremely impressive beginning for Vincent and I know we'll be seeing a lot more from him in the very near future.

Lyrics

Am I the Only One?

Written By: Vincent O'Rourke

How will you explain?
The lives you played are all in vain
Feel good or bad, who cares
The burden is not yours to bare
As you're out with your women and lovin the sin, yeah well she'll be at home with the kids your forgettin..

Am I the only one, who knows what's goin on?
Am I the only one who can see the truth baby?
Am I destined to feel stuck in silence?
As they stand by his side, I cannot be so quiet,
he lies and he lies and he lies,
but I'm not blind

They keep on gettin worse
The story just keeps changing verse
Now she's scattered like the sand, like castaways lookin for land
and I feel hot inside and I can't let it hide, but I know that I've got to bring it to light...

I feel hot inside and I can't let it hide, but I know that I've got to bring it to light
As they stand by his side, I cannot be so quiet,
he lies and he lies and he li-es, and he li-es, he lies
