“Sorcha, who I've known for several years and played with several times, has all the necessary qualities a fine singer/songwriter should have. Chief of these is her folk-influenced songwriting, which can weave spells for her listeners, drawing them into subtle and fascinating worlds, exploring love and existence, womens’ viewpoints, and mystical energies. She supports this well with very capable and expressive keyboard playing. Her calmly powerful, clear voice has a captivating quality, as does the strong charisma she brings to her live performances.”
Morgan Fisher (Mott the Hoople)
“Sorcha’s textured soundscapes transport me to quiet landscapes for daydreaming and thinking. Her live performances span from the sublime immersive experience to the downright saucy!”
