Sorcha Richardson Re-imagines Selected ‘First Prize Bravery’ Tracks

During the current Covid-19 restrictions, artists have been finding different ways of getting through, and getting their craft to people. Sorcha Richardson used the time to re-imagine some tracks from her recent album, ‘First Prize Bravery’, in a stripped back fashion.

Sorcha explains…

“I recorded this EP in my bedroom in spring during the early stages of lockdown. Like most musicians, all of my upcoming tours were cancelled and I found myself with an unexpectedly empty schedule. On the days I didn’t feel inspired to write, I passed the time by working on this EP, recording stripped back versions of some older songs that people may already know. I often find myself writing about hope and disappointment, and the feeling of life falling short of the dreams you have in your head. There was something quite cathartic about re-recording these songs a couple years after originally writing them, in a time of so much uncertainty and change. Most of them originally  started out on acoustic guitar, sometimes existing entirely as voice memos on my phone, until they became something bigger in the studio. This EP is a glimpse into how they sound when it’s just me playing them alone in my room.
