Sorcha Richardson is a singer/songwriter from Dublin. She formed her first band with two friends from school when she was 10-years-old and has been making music ever since. Her brand of alternative indie rock has been championed by the likes of Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show, featured in The Fader and DIY, and has amassed over 20-million streams on Spotify.
After moving to New York at the age of 18 to study creative writing, Sorcha began making demos in her East Village dorm room. The low-fi recordings were shared rapidly amongst her college classmates, and eventually - bored one day at a record label internship - Sorcha decided to send them to Nialler9, who shared them on his blog and marked her as a promising Irish talent to watch.
After graduating, Sorcha spent time collaborating and performing with other musicians in the Brooklyn music scene. She released her hugely successful single Petrol Station, winning praise from major music blogs across America and Europe and earning her first airplay on BBC Radio 1. She followed this up with a string of highly acclaimed singles, including Ruin Your Night and Lost, and played headline shows in New York and LA.
In May 2019, Sorcha released 'Don't Talk About It', the first single from her highly anticipated debut album. The song reached #1 on the Hype Machine popular chart and was including in a number of "best of the month" lists by publications including The Guardian, The Fader and iD magazine. Her album is set for release in autumn 2019.
