Songwriter Lorraine Nash returns with stunning new single ‘A Minute’ set for release April 7, 2023. The Kerry musician is thrilled to announce the release of her long awaited debut album All That I Can Be due out this summer alongside her first headline tour dates in Cork and Dublin.

‘A Minute’ is Lorraine’s second release in 2023 demonstrating her evolution as a songwriter and a hint of what her upcoming live performances promise. Showcasing Lorraine’s unique vocal with influence from Gillian Welch and Gabrielle Aplin, Lorraine allows herself to be her most vulnerable yet on new single ‘A Minute’.

Known for her image laden lyrics Lorraine arranges intricately interwoven harmonies with deceptively simple accompaniment. Her 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 ‘A Minute’ offers a glimpse into the scope of her upcoming debut album All That I Can Be due out May 2023.

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 creates her own artwork and videos and used her skill on multiple instruments to self-record her eagerly awaited debut album alongside long time collaborator Pat Herring Ahern. Lorraine has wowed audiences at Cork Opera House, Tradfest, Right Here Right Now, (Indiependence presents) Autumn Air, Triskel Arts Centre,  Kinsale Arts Festival as well as industry events Your Roots Are Showing and Music Cork.
