Ireland’s young rising star Lorraine Nash returns in 2023 with brand new singles from her upcoming debut album due out in Australia June 2023.
Ahead of a busy year - ‘I’ll Go’- has been warmly received by Australian audiences. Already released in Ireland, it went straight to #1 Spot in the RTE Radio 1 charts, and after a month is still well placed in the charts.
“And I’ve been reading from this map for some time now // And though I wrote it // I still can’t figure it out”
sings Lorraine on ‘I’ll Go’ a song about figuring out life’s choices.
With a strong trad influence ‘I’ll Go’ showcases Lorraine’s lyricism and imagery laden lyrics to perfection. Known for her intricately interwoven harmonies and deceptively simple accompaniment Lorraine’s song writing has matured in the years since the release of her debut EP Wildflower in 2020.
With a tone uniquely hers Lorraine’s vocal has grown in strength; displaying her ambition to continue to evolve as an artist and
showcasing the potential that lies ahead for her. New single ‘I’ll Go’ offers a glimpse into the scope of her upcoming debut album.
The independent release of her debut EP Wildflower in 2020 saw the multi-instrumentalist quickly become one of the most played female artists on Irish radio. As a creator Lorraine has made use of her skills not only creating her own artwork and videos but also on numerous instruments to self-record her eagerly awaited debut album alongside long time collaborator Pat Herring Ahern.
Lorraine has wowed audiences at the Right Here Right Now, (Indiependence presents) Autumn Air, Triskel Arts Centre, Cork Opera House, Kinsale Arts Festival and has performed alongside John
Spillane, Jack O’Rourke, Stephanie Rainey and The Lost Brothers.
