Lori Triplett‘s journey into the music industry began at a young age. At age 12, she was writing original material and by age 15 she was performing it. Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, this singer-songwriter has written, released and co-produced two full-length albums and two singles to critical acclaim. At the moment, Lori is receiving both national and international coverage from A&R Factory, Heart of Indie Radio, Nashville’s YoCo 96.7 FM and 94.7 Country Luxembourg (to name but a few). Let’s add to this growing list with a review by Turtle Tempo – that’s us! The latest addition to her discography is ‘If My Name Were New York’.
Released in September 2020, ‘If My Name Were New York’ is smooth, endearing and moving single. Lori mentions being influenced by Phoebe Bridgers, Joni Mitchell and Ingrid Michealson, and this is incredibly evident in her new single. Written as an ode to a long-distance relationship that did not work out, this bare-bones piano-driven track is sincere and emotional. The raw, stripped-back nature of ‘If My Name Were New York’ enhances its simplicity and you can really feel the desperate honesty in Lori’s entrancing vocals.
Overall, Lori Triplett may be a beautiful woman on the surface, but her music captures your heart and shows her beauty shine from her soul.
