Canadian blues musician Liam Docherty takes inspiration from the stars with his new single ‘Gemini Rising’ out on June 2nd on all digital streaming platforms. ’Gemini Rising’ is the first single and title track from Liam’s new album (out on June 30th), which was written and recorded when he was 15 years old.
"The song is inspired by my study of Greek Mythology and specifically the mythology of the Gemini star constellation,” says Liam. "The themes therein are experienced by all of us, everyday, as we go about our lives,specifically; separation, loss, longing, love and reunification. The song is about two people who have been separated and are destined to overcome all odds to reunite."
Based on Vancouver Island, Liam Docherty is an official partner of Taylor Guitars and has been performing publicly since the age of 7. He’s opened shows for the legendary Terry Robb, Ken Hamm, Mississippi Delta Bluesman Terry “Harmonica” Bean, and BC Hall of Fame Inductee Doug Cox, among others.
Set for release on June 30th, Liam's new album Gemini Rising follows the release of his 2020 debut album Modern. Magic. Melody., which earned critical acclaim and sold records internationally. The album also received TV, radio, and print media coverage from CBC, The Globe & Mail, The Vancouver Sun, The Times Colonist, and CHEK TV. It also yielded a nomination for New Act of The Year at the Maple Blues Awards and at just 13 years of age, he became the youngest person in the history of the awards to be nominated.
'Gemini Rising' is available now on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services worldwide.
