DOUBLE DELIGHT – AND MORE – FOR LARISSA’S FANS
Fans of LARISSA TORMEY are in for a double-delight later this month with the news that the singer/songwriter will be releasing not one, but two brand new dvds.
The video collections – THANK GOD I’M A COUNTRY GIRL, and BREATH OF FRESH AIR – will be available from Monday, OCTOBER 18th, released through the Tyrone based MUSIC CITY record label. And for Larissa, teaming up with Terry Corrigan and his team is something that she’s definitely looking forward to…
“Most artists are independent these days, to a large extent, and with only a few exceptions, such as the very biggest names. So one of the biggest challenges for any artist is to find people who you can work with – and work well with – in different areas of your career. That’s the trick to building up the kind of team you need to have around you when you’re not actually signed to a major label. So for me, to be working with Terry again on this double-DVD project is fantastic.”
Larissa continued, “I’m delighted to be able to offer these two video collections to my fans. With the long evenings settling in now, hopefully people will enjoy watching them and enjoying my music. And because I’m working with Terry and Music City, I know that distribution is going to be well taken care of, as it always is with Terry.”
Speaking about their new collaboration, Mr. Corrigan of Music City said, “We’ve been promoting country and Irish stars for over twenty years, and we’re delighted to partner with Larissa in the promotion and distribution of her new video collections, and indeed, on her last three albums as well. Fans should watch out for all of Larissa’s merchandise from their local music suppliers and stockists, and of course, they can order directly from our website at www.musiccitydirect.com, and Larissa’s own website, too.”
If anyone thought that Larissa, who has already enjoyed a busy and successful 2021, even in spite of the well-documented challenges faced by the music industry, might decide to wind down her year with this double-DVD release, well, they’d be wrong. Larissa, whose latest single Crowded Places (from Larissa’s own songbook) is already heading towards five figures in Spotify streams, has hinted that her biggest news of the year might, in fact, be yet to come…
“I’m very grateful to have enjoyed a really good year musically, and that’s what has made dealing with everything else – all of the uncertainty in the music world – easier to cope with. So I want to end this year in a special way. For one thing, to say to everyone, yes…we made it through! But also to remember those who we might have lost along the way, like our neighbour Tom [Lynam], who was the brilliant star of the video for my song, Old Fashioned, but sadly passed away not long after. And as well, I think now is a time when we all need to look ahead too, and remind ourselves that we still have many bright times to come, and many better days and nights to celebrate. So, I’m working on something that I’m excited about, and I’m looking forward to being able to share more about it very soon!”
