VIENNA, VA. - New York has had an influence on musicians through the years, and the big apple was part of the picture when Erin Rea Ochocki, aka “Rorie,” broke away from the 9-5 world, adopted the one-name genre of Rorie and hit the stage as a singer. She hasn’t looked back either. “I traveled around the city, playing shows by myself and realized that was my passion,” the 20-something singer said.

Fast forward a few years and Rorie has a name of her own, and several EP’s, including one called “Dawn,” that consists of four songs she’s highlighting at her show at Vienna’s Jammin’ Java on Jan. 14.

“Dawn” focuses on overcoming obstacles and struggles that crop up in life, and Rorie has seen a few of these struggles to know first hand. In New York, for example, she worked for a non-profit, devoting her time to combat human trafficking, and worked with a roommate on a music video to raise awareness. The roommate, Jordan Ippolito, danced a choreographic routine in a deserted, dusty structure to drive home the point.
