Rising star Lorraine Nash returns with another beautifully crafted single with ‘Snowflakes’.
Due out December 13, Lorraine’s vocal wraps around the listener hygge-style like a warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate, as she asks you to look up at the stars and hold on to hope, because “from the cold comes something beautiful”.
“There’s a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in,” said Leonard Cohen and Lorraine Nash writes about this with aplomb, from her powerful statement on female authorship on ‘Sing With Her’, to getting over heartbreak with ‘Wolves’.
In ‘Snowflakes’ she sings about holding onto to hope reminding us that “you can only know love if you’ve known pain”. Capturing the magic of winter and feeling as if it was written especially for the Christmas season, ‘Snowflakes’ is a song Lorraine first wrote when she was 16 which she returned to rewrite as she was putting together her debut album, due out in 2022.
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.
Lorraine has made use of her skills on numerous instruments to self-record her eagerly awaited debut album alongside producer Herring Ahern set for release in 2022.
A spellbinding, live-streamed set at Cork Opera House in the winter of 2020 by the Kerry singer songwriter led to her signing with FIFA Records.
In the past year Lorraine has wowed audiences at the Ruby Sessions, Right Here Right Now Festival, (Indiependence presents) Autumn Air, Triskel Arts Centre, Cork Opera House, Kinsale Arts Festival and has performed alongside John Spillane, Jack O’Rourke and The Lost Brothers.
Lorraine releases ‘Snowflakes’ on FIFA Records December 13, 2021.
