About Sorcha Richardson
Embellishing singer/songwriter introspection with atmospheric electronic production, Sorcha Richardson is a musician from Dublin, Ireland. She started her first band with friends at the age of ten. At 18, she relocated to Brooklyn, New York's vast music scene and self-released her first EP, Sleep Will Set Me Free, in 2012. Crosswalk Records issued the 2013 follow-up, Last Train. Released in mid-2015, her song "Petrol Station" garnered the most attention yet, leading to her first sold-out show in Dublin. While continuing to engage with the music scene of New York, seek out like-minded collaborators, and play shows to help develop new material, she relied on the Internet to self-release her music. In mid-2016, Richardson started a web site that featured her own handwritten notes to listeners. A series of singles including "Walk Away" and "Lost" appeared later that year, with "4AM" and "Walking Life" following in 2017, and she moved her base back to Ireland after finding headlining tour opportunities there, as well as a support slot on tour with countrywoman Imelda May. Continuing a trend toward lusher arrangements, "Can't We Pretend" arrived in 2018.
