1998 saw the UK release of his debut album NOWHERE, SOMEWHERE, ANYWHERE. This was followed in 2002 by BLOOD, BONES & SOUL described by the Irish Times: “his relentlessly upbeat folk-rock courses with positive thinking and vigorous musicality...Faithfield is invigorating and inspiring”.
CIRCLE DANCE, a completely solo acoustic album, was released in 2007. "This is beautiful, straightforward storytelling, saturated in Irish folk traditions but with a keen edge born of Faithfield's days as a punk rocker in Sydney. I was reminded of Paul Kelly's more lyrical excursions, which is a high compliment" (WEST AUSTRALIAN)
Rory's fourth album SONGS FOR SOONER, was co-produced with renowned Irish music veteran Gavin Murphy and released in 2010. According to Bruce Elder, "This is a sublime, heart-stoppingly beautiful album".
Anthony O'Grady noted in THE AUSTRALIAN that, "His message is that all shades of experience can be metamorphosed into positivity and individualistic growth...layers of meaning are revealed gradually" (4 STARS).
Mesmerising festival performances at the National (twice), Port Fairy, Yungaburra (three times), Maldon (three times), Nannup (three times), Nimbin, Tarerer, Lake Bolac and others, have proved testament to critical acclaim and carved out a dedicated audience keen to evolve with Rory on his journey.
