With her hyper-sentimental lyrics and emotive performance style, the Lisa Gorry earns a deserved reputation as one to watch for 2019. Reminiscent of an early Damien Rice, her songwriting explore love and loss in an ultimately uplifting portrayal of what it’s like to navigate relationships in this modern era, affirming that you can still feel down while knowing your worth.
A Kildare native, the formidable Gorry is no stranger to the open mic scene, where her combination of relatable lyrics and tender vocal tones have been honed to craft an intimate performance style. Performing around Dublin since 2010, she found herself accidentally sharing stages with the likes of Gavin James and Kodaline. Having performed earlier this year before a spellbound audience in the packed-to-capacity Ruby Sessions, her lyrics echo the sentiments of a young Joni Mitchell with the vocal prowess of Dusty Springfield & emotive power of Janis Joplin.
