Orla Gartland, a young girl from Dublin Ireland has become another youtube success story. Having gathered 4,909,909 video views, 33556 subscribers and uploading over 45 videos, her popularity has grown immensely since she first joined in January 2009. She is the 22nd most subscribed channel in Ireland, the 5th most subscribed musician in Ireland and the 19th most viewed musician in Ireland on youtube.
Her popularity has grown so much that she has released her first Ep; “Laughing at my Own Jokes”, available right now to download on iTunes. This 3 track Ep is a brilliant example of the outstanding up and coming Irish musical talent. It provides an intriguing mix of acoustic guitar, ukulele and magical vocals. The three tracks; ‘Adventure Time’, ‘Bruised’, and ‘All the Little Details’ are eah as strong as one another. Orla displays wonderful guitar and ukulele technique throughout, and her mesmerising voice only makes the Ep stronger.
I myself am one of Orla’s many subscribers, and I have watched many of her videos; covers and originals alike. Each and every one of them are outstanding renditions, and if have one criticism of the Ep, it is that more of her originals were not featured. I, like many others worldwide await the day she releases her first album. The future holds bright prospects for Orla Gartland.
