Have you heard of Orla Gartland yet?

orla gartland

She is the viral pop songstress from Ireland that is making waves and entrancing listeners!

Only 18 she is from Dublin, Ireland, and known for her brilliantly original quirky folk pop, bursting with personality and catchy melodies. These songs all tied together by her distinctive, Celtic-infused vocal and trademark animated live performance

Orla’s online success speaks for itself, with an impressive 11 million hits on Youtube,  positioning her as an incredibly refreshing one-to-watch for star of 2015.

So in keeping with our Irish month, I wanted to share about her new EP, Lonely People,



 This EP is Gartland’s sophomore edition, and keeps Orla’s trademark fusion of folksy, dreamy heartfelt songs, that the entire family will delight in listening to. Miss Grace has found a new guitarist to follow- she loves that sings ad plays guitar and writes songs! I love that Orla actually can play multiple instruments, and is an encouragement to Miss Grace to learn more and more! The EP is great for listening to in the car, and once you check it out, you'll want to hear more!

Check out the video for Lonely People, made from videos sent in by her followers
(how cool is that?):


Orla's debut EP, Roots, hit No. 1 in the main Irish iTunes chart, 15 in the UK chart, and No. 2 in the U.S. singer/songwriter chart. So great things are expected from this new EP, which was produced by Andrew Maury; RAC, and Panama Wedding!

To support the EP, Orla will be at SXSW 2015, which takes place later this month (March 17-22) in Austin, Texas from March 17-22. Following her SXSW appearance, Gartland will be playing across North America.
