Lore has managed to squeeze in competition finals, live radio sessions - on Radio Ulster, Q Radio, Q105, Near FM among many and festival appearances at great events such as the Derry Clipper Festival, Ballyshannon Folk Festival and FSTV Festival.

They are currently working on the subsequent Album and organizing the Life. Love. Loss. Fate tour for summer 2015.

'Melancholy yet inspirational songs that bring to mind artists such as Melissa Etheridge, Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan... Carlile has an exceptional voice. She is dynamic, diverse and is able to deliver different shades of emotion within one single word. On top of that her slightly noticeable Irish accent is quite attractive.'
Jamie Funk, The Equal Ground
‘This musical trio not only make listeners feel as if they are living within the music themselves they also tell gripping stories with well written music and lyrics…Carlile embodies a powerful yet angelic voice that truly brings the music to life and shows us what Irish singing is all about.’ Ciara Walsh PureM Magazine
