IORA and friends on stage at the Griffin Centre, Rendcomb, Cirencester.
IORA, is a 23-year-old singer-songwriter originally from Cirencester and moved to Manchester to study. Inspired by both life in the country and the city, she combines vocal and instrumental harmonies with electronic samples and sounds. This intriguing mix blends folk tones, a versatile voice and haunting arrangements. This summer she appeared at 2,000 Trees Cheltenham and Dot-to-Dot festivals in Manchester. Her single “Thieves’ Den” has been played on BBC Manchester Introducing.
