Lisa Gorry’s Debut Single (Parts) – Launch Party
August 23, 2019 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM€5
Lisa Gorry announces her debut single, “Parts”, a poignant insight into the dawning of self-worth after a break-up. Produced by Kevin Brennan of Wavefarm Productions, Gorry explores the realisation that we are more than we make ourselves feel in the wake of a split and confirms that there are parts of us that emerge, slightly bruised, but better off. Lullaby-like, “Parts” mimics the natural ups and downs of self-realisation through moving orchestral arrangements and a raw vocal performance. In honour of her first release, Gorry will be hosting a Parts Launch Party in the Vintage Room of the Workman’s Club on August 23rd, bringing together a band for the first time.
With her hyper-sentimental lyrics and emotive performance style, the formidable Gorry earns a deserved reputation as one to watch for 2019. Reminiscent of an early Damien Rice, her lyrics 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, 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 taken a break from music for a couple of years, the composition of “Parts” heralds the start of a new music journey, a more self-assured and purposeful one. Performing early 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.
