Soricah is an Irish/Mauritian musician and producer. Having been brought up in Ireland, Africa, Mauritius and London, her music is very much influenced by her varied upbringing, and the music and people she has been exposed to. Songs from her debut EP Let the Fire Burn Free have been premiered nationally on BBC Radio Kent and 2fm, Ireland. Having just released new track, Waiting, as well as this EP, The Fountain caught up with Soricah to discuss the track as well as her plans with the EP.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Waiting

The reception has been fantastic so far, which I am so happy for! It has been played nationally on BBC and Internationally on 2fm over in Ireland, which is giving the track more of an audience, along with being featured on several playlists! It’s early days, but I am hoping the song will resonate with people out there!

TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?

A melancholic look on being in love!

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release, I note an EP?

The EP, Let the Fire Burn Free, has just been released! Four very different tracks, and has been written and recorded over several years. I hope people will enjoy listening to it as much as I have enjoyed recording it! For the remainder of the year, I will be writing a script for a music video for Waiting which will hopefully be able to be filmed in December/January! It is something I have never done before so I am looking forward to getting into it!

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging? 

I think my favourite would have to be Studio 180 in Lambeth! Such a quirky venue! I would look forward to playing anywhere that’s feasible at this moment, but it would be great to play at some festivals next year! I’ll keep you posted!
