Orly Vardy, the ‘Singer with the Gentle Voice’ from Israel, has performed in prestigious events throughout Israel and around the world. Several of her songs have been successful in various international competitions; including Unisong USA during 2003-2009.
She has participated in several international projects such as; ‘Ray of Hope’, ‘After the Rain’ and ‘The Lyricist’.
Her album ‘A Million Love Songs’ was released in 2012 and songs from the album were very successful on radio stations in the UK and across Europe, the USA and Australia.
She had the most plays of any singer in 2008 on Venture Radio UK and was chosen by their listeners as the ‘Artist of the Year’ in 2008.
She recently released her second International EP ‘So Many Things to Say’ and the album combines songs in several styles and genres which highlights Orly’s versatility as an artist.
Songwriter, Paul Hobbs, was born in Bristol and lives in Weston Super-Mare, UK. He has been writing songs for over 30 years and originally penned the song back in the 1980s under the title ‘My World’. In 2006, Paul reworked the song and renamed it ‘Our World’. Five years later, Paul was encouraged by Leopard Music (Music Publisher) to take the song back into studio to give it a fresh updated feel. They arranged for the song to be restructured with a new production and vocal, the outcome was a highly commercial radio-friendly pop ballad.
Paul has always enjoyed composing romantic pop ballads and walking by the sea and it was on one such coastal walk when he was inspired to write the lyrics to ‘Our World’. The song has been described by many as a beautiful song, with a classic and timeless appeal and he rates it as one of his very best compositions.
Paul was thrilled when Orly Vardy selected the song and wanted to release it as her next single and is hoping ‘Our World’ will at last reach its full potential and achieve global success with Orly Vardy.
