Sorcha Richardson is a Irish singer/songwriter based in Dublin, where she returned in 2017 after living in New York for eight years. Her atmospheric folk has been poetically described as "bedroom songs sung from a big city window" (bitzlr.com). She released her debut EP, "Sleep Will Set Me Free", in June 2012 and her follow up EP, "Last Train", on September 30th through Parisian indie label Crosswalk Records. Her debut album "First Prize Bravery" was realeased in November 2019 – "intimate, personal pop" (DIY). It was on the shortlist for RTÉ Choice Music Prize album of ther year.
Nobody does jazz and soul-drenched melodies quite like Carrie Baxter. Although she has been compared to some of her idols like Erykah Badu and the late Amy Winehouse, the Irish singer brings a distinctively sweet vocal style to everything she does - one that is authentically hers.
Since her debut single release in October 2019, she has been hotly-tipped, with indie music bible Earmilk branding her ‘an artist on the precipice of greatness’ and Hot Press Magazine calling her ‘one of the most thrilling new forces in Irish music’.
