Orla Monelle is excited to announce the release of her new single ‘Timing’ on the 9th of March. This highly anticipated single captures the pain of a relationship ending and two people moving on at different paces.
Orla Monelle is an independent Pop/R&B artist based in Dublin. Raised in Belgium to Irish parents, her upbringing was filled with all kinds of music. From the Irish trad her father played to the French songs she listened to in Brussels, she was always exploring new genres. At just 17 years old she moved to Dublin and has since performed around multiple venues in Ireland, most recently playing The Ruby Sessions. Her name Orla Monelle, is a combination of the Irish and French language, it captures the unique identity her upbringing has given her.
To date, Orla has released three singles ‘Close to me’, ‘Lazy’ and ‘Carry Myself’. She has gathered over 40,000 plays on Spotify and landed features on playlists such as ‘New Music Friday UK’ and ‘R&B Fresh Finds’.
