“I swam down to the bottom of the ocean and found myself a love potion.”Love Potion, Gem O’Reilly
Love Potion is the latest EP by talented pop singer-songwriter Gem O’Reilly. As a teenager, she participated in the nationwide music competition Live and Unsigned and it was there that her knack for writing solid melodic country pop tunes was recognised by Alex Baker of Kerrang! Radio. Since then she has continued to progress in her journey as a solo artist, performing alongside the likes of Damian McGinty and Cole Page and overall taking pride in writing honest and relatable music that tells a story.
Her second release as an independent artist, Love Potion follows her Teenager and I Have Found Me EPs and signifies a growth in maturity and experience she has undergone throughout her musical career. The overall theme presented throughout is love, with tracks like the self-titled number and Forget Me particularly focusing on feelings on love lost and regrets on the ones that got away. A short and concise package of delicate vocals amidst wistful melodies and a strong presence of acoustic guitars, Love Potion is a fantastic collection of compositions by an artist who sings from the heart.
Dubbed ‘the British Taylor Swift‘ by BBC Radio, Gem O’Reilly possesses an earnest warmth and strong compositional skill that has gained recognition from The Independent and Manchester Evening News. The EP holds as a strong statement of her gift for songwriting, and as we head closer into the new decade she will certainly be a name to look out for.
