She is an amazing storyteller with an overflowing imagination when it comes to making her songs. Her new song, Fire, combines Celtic melodies and meaningful words to explore the intricate side of love. There is a lead guitar and a pedal steel guitar which meet to create a very beautiful song.

Toria Richings‘ song conveys powerful emotions between two people – a person trying to understand how much the other person truly loves them.

In Toria’s own words: “Fire is a love song, it is a ballad steeped full of all the emotions you can feel when you find someone you never want to lose. I am really proud of this song. I put so much into creating the right feels, working closely with my producer to make sure we got the right sounds that I had imagined for it from the beginning.”

This song underlines the power of love and it is a powerful reminder that we should never easily give up anything we believe in. If you’re looking for a song to tug at your heartstrings, Fire is it.
