Sorcha Richardson, the extraordinarily talented Irish-born singer-songwriter is one of our favorite discoveries of the past year or so. So, we were especially delighted when a package arrived from Sorcha, containing a thumb-drive with a new song, beautiful limited edition artwork she has created and a hand-written, heart-felt letter. Here is an excerpt:
The music that I’ve been working on lately feels a little more personal than anything I’ve done before. I’ve been wondering what to do with it, as sending it into the blogosphere and hoping someone heard it just didn’t feel right. So, after mulling it over, I decided to do this! I wanted you to have as intimate of an experience hearing it as I had making it. “Walk Away” is the first in a collection of songs that I’ll be releasing later this summer, but I wanted the people who care about my music, and who’ve helped me out in the past to get to hear it first before it’s released. I really believe that music should be an interpersonal dialogue and not just a one-way street from creator to a listener.
