Sorcha’s voice captures the blues, jazz, country and latin influences of her new five piece band. This 2012 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist expands her rock and soul side with Joe Farrell (vocals, electric guitar), Patia Maule (vocals, keys, fiddle), Adam Montminy (vocals, bass) and Chas Lester (vocals, drums).
Backed by a seasoned rhythm section, inventive instrumentalists and rich harmonies, Sorcha has the space to stretch out from whispers to wails and to expand her “suite of musical styles that shows a wide-ranging songwriting ability. . . witty verses with smart rhymes” (Portland Pheonix).
Sorcha – lead vocals, acoustic guitar
Joe Farrell – vocals, electric guitar
Patia Maule – vocals, keys, fiddle
Adam Montminy – vocals, bass
Chas Lester – vocals, drums
