Sydney-Based Tori Darke Returns With New Single 'Sit In A Bar'

It’s been a quite few years for Australian singer-songwriter, Tori Darke, but she’s making her way out of the dark and back into the light thanks to her brand new single, “Sit In A Bar”.

The song is Tori’s first new release in 6 years and her debut under her new deal with Catherine Britt’s Beverley Hillbilly Records.

Penned by Tori along with Jason Duke and Johnny Simmen a few years back when she spent three months writing in Nashville, “Sit In A Bar”, is a shift in gears Tori and unlike anything you’ve ever heard from her.

According to Tori, the song came from an idea of being in a bar and not getting drunk, not hooking up or anything else you could go to a bar for. It talks about lost love and epic heartbreak.

“Sit In A Bar is a very true reflection of a point in my life when I was lost and heartbroken and one of the toughest things I have overcome. It’s raw and real emotion”, says Tori.

“Most people have felt heartbreak at least once and there are days when you just don’t want to be alone sitting with the emptiness that is a breakup. Sit In A Bar talks about being surrounded by others who are going through the same thing and just want to sit in a bar with others like you”.

“Songwriting is where I have always gotten the best kind of therapy because even though a broken heart hurts – it writes a way better song!”

Tori Darke is a 31 year old Sydney based singer-songwriter who recently featured on The Voice. Her spontaneous duet with Keith Urban of “Stupid Boy” went viral. She was a Golden Guitar Award nominee in 2018 for Female Artist of The Year, hit the top of the iTunes charts, has two albums and an EP to her credit and performed for our troops during three overseas tours to Afghanistan, United Arab Emirates and the Solomon Islands.
