In a world where we’re taught to aspire to unattainable levels of perfection, Orla Gartland’s unfiltered honesty is a breath of fresh air. Balancing normal insecurities and a self-deprecating wit with impressive levels of self-reliance and steely determination, the Dublin-born, London-based singer-songwriter/producer started writing songs when she was 14 years old. Unable to convince any of the 18+ local pubs and venues to let her perform, she honed her craft online, building a huge audience on YouTube, before heading out on tour the day she finished school. On her return she packed her bags and moved to London, spending the next few years writing, recording, touring and gathering a passionate fanbase and strong creative community.
With the release of her EPs Lonely People, Why Am I Like This, Freckle Season and debut album Woman On The Internet through her own label New Friends, Gartland has amassed over 193 million streams to date and has played festivals from Glastonbury to Latitude and sold out shows across the UK and beyond.
