SONG PICK: Sorcha Richardson – First Prize Bravery
At glamglare we have been following Irish singer/songwriter Sorcha Richardson since her beautiful, heartwarming single “Lost” that she wrote to comfort a friend. Last Friday she released her debut album “First Prize Bravery,” (Apple Music | Spotify) which showcases her ability to turn intimate songwriting into catchy, perfectly crafted pop songs. Sorcha gives us some background about the album’s title track:
This song started out as my attempt to make something that sounded like a track from the latest Feist album, Pleasure. It doesn’t sound anything like that anymore, but it was originally full of really raw acoustic guitars and lo-fi vocals. It sums up a lot of what the album is about for me—the beauty found in life’s ordinary moments and the bravery it takes to not allow disenchantment to cease your best efforts.
