Strawboy

Indie // Claddaghduff, Galway

Strawboy is a project by songwriter and producer Ciarán O’Rourke exploring esoterica, folk wonder and radical mystery. Working from his studio on the tidal island of Omey in the west of Ireland, he has created a new album called Ithaca Regained that is loosely based on Homer’s Odyssey. His work is deeply researched, delving into the collective unconcious through close readings of mystical religions, myth and folklore. He then creates songs that synthesize this ancient lore into a hopeful message to inspire wonder and give meaning in a modern world where these things are lacking.
