For Rory O'Neill, it’s not about self-mythology. Not the latest scene or the most convenient label, but rather it all boils down to the unique power of a great song to restore souls and spirits and lift them up.

Rory grew up being weaned on country music by his family's’ Irish show-band and wanting to be Elvis, also listening to such heart-on-sleeve troubadours as Steve Earle and Garth Brooks. In these new songs the depths and nooks and crannies are revealed more with each listen. It is the sound of wide-open vistas and of bruised prairie skies; of a ribbon highway running to a distant horizon where the sun kisses the land orange and gold.

The country music influence shows in every heart-tugging melody and iridescent chorus. It is sewn into the fabric of O’Neill’s hard-won lyrics and on each step of the journey from the plangent Stutter and the rustic embrace of I'm Sorry to the widescreen dramas played out through the lead single I Stopped Loving You Tonight - a song influenced by George Jones.

The songs are all for Rory and these three speak volumes.
