Lorie DeHimer is lorie@riverhudson with strong roots in the Central New York area, she was born in Syracuse and lived in Onondaga County. Another 10 years, Lorie lived in the Adirondack Mountains inside the Blue Line, the origins of the Hudson River. Her fans reported to her at one Vermont show that she sounded like Taylor Swift, but Lorie’s major influences are Bonnie Raitt and Allison Krauss. With a strong acoustic style and Indie folk rock original sound Lorie explains, “music is a service creating friendships thru intimate experiences of human connection in storytelling and songwriting.”
In CNY, WOUR was a strong influence, “they played the music I loved to listen to and sang in the car and at the bar.” Every weekend was a myriad of live talent to experience and she knew it was was she wanted to do. She left community college music school after three semesters. Years later, she emerged on the small town streets outside a Artist’s Co-op in Old Forge, NY busking for the first time, later that night played her first paid gig at the newly opened roof top restaurant bar, and also played her first ever request all in the same day. Lorie admitted, “It was quite a day.” So, Lorie says, “If you want it, go for it, you may surprise yourself, everyone else, and even be more surprised for what the world has waiting for you.”
Since then, Lorie kicked off the Vermont Rockin’ Concert Series by opening up for TUSK, the well-know Fleetwood Mac Band out of Boston, MA. And she was filmed for The New England Artist Series at Berkshire Community Television Station that aired in an hour long program on public tv showcasing her original work. Lorie resides in Vermont today.
“We are in the midst of planning and booking the 2022 summer tour back to the ADK, and a new stop to Utica/Rome area, back to Lake George, Saratoga, and of coarse we have already a few gigs on the books in Vermont,” they reported. Stay tuned as we announce more shows for this season.
