Rorie is a singer-songwriter, crafting music that tells stories of both heartache and hope. In July 2016, Rorie released her EP, ‘Singing & Silence,’ which was featured in the iTunes Singer-Songwriter New Artist Spotlight. Produced by Chad Copelin, these songs feature intricate composition, uplifting melodies, and thought-provoking lyrics. Prior to this, Rorie released a single, “Restore,” which was funded by 98 Kickstarter backers. The song was inspired by her time working for an anti-human trafficking non-profit in NYC, and the accompanying video tells a story of strength and perseverance. In Fall 2017, Rorie will release her second EP, “DAWN,” a lush and energetic collection of dream pop.
