DORA GOLA

Indie // Lahinch, Clare

Dora’s sensual voice will draw any listener in. Her inspiration is an amalgamation of her earliest influences nurtured by her father’s massive eclectic music collection influences that span from Kate Bush, Phil Collins to Jean Michelle-Jarre and Enigma. Her first single released in April ‘Dark Sand’ was a great success gaining much radio play including national play at RTE Radio 1 and receiving outstanding reviews by music bloggers.
The story of ‘Dark Sand’ reminds you that you can search for guidance in nature and you will find comfort and reassurance once you get back to your roots. It’s a perfect concoction of avant garde pop, world and electronic music. The music video for ‘Dark Sand’ won a multiple awards at international film festivals including Honorable Mention for Best Music Video at the Independent Shorts Awards Film Festival in Los Angeles, Underground Cinema Film Awards in Dublin, International Music Video Awards in London and Music Video Underground.

Her professional dancing experience beautifully work together to create a live cinematic experience and convey the message of the music.
In 2019 Dora was nominated by Hot Press Magazine for the Most Promising Act 2019 and more recently featured in Hot Press “Under The Radar” column in 2021. She was also featured in the Irish Times Magazine

Her much anticipated second single Flying Tree, due to release later this Summer is an energetic track with summer vibes from the 90s and ethnic elements from around the world. ‘Flying Tree’ is a second single from Dora’s debut album due to release this year.

In addition to Dora’s musical talents, she has an amazing story to tell. She is a vibrant, open individual, whose excitement about life and her art is contagious. She wants people to know the work it takes to create an album and that it does not happen overnight. Her success was a result of consistent hard work and determination. She is an extremely independent individual, who lets her instinct drive her decisions. Within the music industry, she found that continually following others advice got her more loss than anything else. Dora was born in Poland and moved to Ireland in 2008. She lived in Limerick until 3 years ago and she now resides in the beautiful Lahinch, where she has her own singing and performance school “Voice Progress Lahinch”.
