Performance Showcase 2018

Yaaaayy!! They did it!!! A huge well done to all my vocal students and WLV songbirds who took part in the Performance Showcase last night. I’m so so proud of every single person on that stage. I am so grateful to work with you all (and the many other wonderful vocalists I work with!) on a weekly basis. There were tears galore from me backstage (no surprise!). You all shone so brightly. A huge thank you also to everybody who came along to support the event, it was so lovely to see so many friendly faces. Here’s to next year! 💫

New Single Out Today!!

Our new single is out TODAY!! You can download it now!

This song means a lot to us. It’s about our late Grampa. We wrote it as part of the healing process when we lost him almost 3 years ago. The lyrics in the chorus are words he had written in a letter that he wrote and had requested to be read to us at the funeral service. We hope that, in some way, this song will be relatable for anyone who’s struggling/struggled with grief.

Love you Grampa Orfila ❤️

First Gig of 2018!

Thursday 8th Feb marked our first gig of 2018. We played at the lovely Pizza Express Music Rooms in Maidstone as part of a ‘Paul Dunton and Guests’ music event. We had so much fun! And got to meet the lovely More Than Echoes, Sofia Ford and Jack Leon Mackey!

It was a great way to start our next year of music. We played songs from our second album and a new song from our latest EP, which by the way, is available to download on iTunes or to stream on Spotify!

Huge thanks to Paul for having us play on Thursday! 2018 gigs have kick started for ORFILA and we have an exciting year ahead! Keep an eye on the Shows page for gig updates and the news page, social media etc for upcoming interviews!
