Richardson left home for Brooklyn as a teenager to study creative writing, launching her early musical releases from the states - including early fan favourite ‘Ruin Your Night’ - but it was upon moving back to her native Dublin that she was inspired to take stock of where she was at, eventually delivering the defining work of her short career thus far, the lauded First Prize Bravery. Greeted by critical acclaim from Nylon, The Irish Times, DIY and more, comparisons were made with Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers et al, leading to a nomination for the Choice Music Prize. Coupled with her first bout of proper touring in support of her debut, Sorcha’s narrative songwriting has continued to connect with people far away from her Dublin home, giving songs to those who have shared similar tangled emotions, providing a tonic with her music.
