Belfast, County Antrim
Rory Nellis is one of those rare finds in music - a humble singer-songwriter who picked up a guitar at 13 and hasn’t seemed to put it down. Producing a mix of folk-pop and indie-rock stemming from musings on life, death, relationships and politics he is a surefire hit for fans of Wilco, Villagers and Duke Special.
‘There Are Enough Songs In The World’ released November 2017 is the follow up from Rory’s debut album ‘Ready For You Now,’ - widely acclaimed in Ireland, seeing Rory being heralded as “One of Ireland’s Most Naturally Gifted Songsmiths” by The Thin Air - ‘There Are Enough Song’s In The World’ is as tongue and cheek and relaxed as Rory’s outlook on life. Filled with honest, self-reflective melodies and lyrics, he is flying the flag for the art of songwriting. What comes out is an effortless flow of wonderful noises, poignant sentiments and earworm like hooks which you are guided through by Rory’s emotive voice - gentle and comforting in one verse and epic and roaring in another.
Before ‘There Are Enough Songs In The World’ was released, each song had its moment to shine as a single. Letting the album reveal itself like a TV series, Rory released a track every month for 10 months, resulting in each song gaining support from the likes of BBC Radio Ulster (Across The Line, Arts Extra, Electric Mainline) Blast 106, Hotpress and The Irish News. Rory has toured all around Ireland, playing festivals such as Belfast Nashville Festival, Hilden Music Festival, Atlantic Sessions and Whelans Song Cycle. Now wanting to reflect on the album, he is releasing a series of live videos while he continues to write his next batch of songs and planning his summer tour.
