Debut single from singer-songwriter Lisa Loughrey - 'Coming Up'

Singer Songwriter Lisa Loughrey will release her debut single, a folk noir/alt country track entitled, Coming Up, on 31st May followed by launch on 8th June at Arthur's Music Venue, Dublin 8.

Lisa says that "Coming Up plays like a confessional in its content and deals with the universal themes of disillusionment and remorse, and it acknowledges a person's constant struggle to get ahead in life despite facing adversity from both outside and within." The song itself is also a hat-tip of sorts to the 1970's folk song 'Sonny's Dream', written by Ron Hynes - the first folk song Loughrey ever learned to sing. Up until now, Lisa has been primarily known for her work with Dublin based Alt Folk outfit, The Mariannes. 'Coming Up' is the first release from her forthcoming solo album.

The recording features the distinctive vocal and acoustic guitar of Loughrey. Also performing on the track is multi-instrumentalist Nathan Maher (Buffalo Sunn, Slackers' Symphony), veteran bassist Damian McMahon (formerly of Tupelo), percussionist/drummer Jacob Fry (BIMM graduate) and Eoghan Keane on trumpet. The track was recorded in The Nutshed Studios, and was mixed and produced by Nathan Maher and Joe Egan.

Lisa has previously written songs that have featured in documentaries (RTE Radio1), radio, music blogs (Folk Radio UK, Tradconnect) and local and national press. She also won the inaugural Clancy Brothers Award for Songwriting in 2014.

Here is an acoustic performance of the song recorded on Grand Canal Quay Dublin.
