Lorka Scher, of titlewillcome, is a Russian-American harpist and dream-folk songwriter. Her music weaves syncopated language with emotive imagery, in a raw, ethereal voice that brings us to the core of what it means to be human. The haunting, honest, and intimate melodies work with themes of ancestral loss, inherited memory, restless seeking and conscious awakening through depth of feeling.
As Lorka prepares to release her next album, “Medicine”, she dedicates the practice of song to the human process of unfolding, remembering, and coming back to life. As humans we have an innate capacity for healing. It is in the tension and heartbreak of our times that we reach a tipping point where collective change is possible. It is through soul-shaking tragedies, we come to re-examine our inherited belief systems, we come to know our socialized conditions, and we hear the call to create something new.
Music offers refuge, expansion and expression in the cultivation of courage - something necessary for anchored action in our uncertain times. These songs dig deep so that extinguished emotions can move, reorganize and transmute into the forgotten longing that guides and supports life.
We are dreaming our reality in.
Lorka often performs solo (harp/vocals/guitar) but other times has accompaniment on violin, cello or vocals. She has been based in Cambridge, MA, California, Portland, OR and the Pacific Northwest.
