About Orla Gartland
Hailing from Dublin and based in London, Orla's brand of alt pop tips the cap to a spectrum of artists who - like Orla - push their personality to the forefront of their music, from Stevie Nicks to Regina Spektor. Orla has played sold-out headline tours of Ireland, the UK & US and along the way has opened stages for acts such as Sigrid, Kodaline and James Vincent McMorrow. After a few years of releasing singles and EPs, Orla has spent 2020 recording her debut album, ready for release in 2021.

This Songwriters' Circle will include performances by students from our Undergraduate courses and will be hosted by our BA Songwriting programme leader, Shane Beales.

You can stream this special event on our ICMP London YouTube channel.
