"Like something unearthed from a time capsule buried in the early 60’s by a still-green Bob Dylan, Miriam Donohue’s music feels like a gift from a time when pop music was still silly enough to be bypassed by those with more on their minds than twisting and shouting. A capable writer, with a sublime delivery that will leave you speechless." Shannon Duval Youbloom2015
"On top of the list is Miriam Donohue for sure, originally from Galway came as a pleasant surprise, striking in appearance, her lyrics are similar to Suzanne Vega; she tells stories of island people and boats off the coast of Connemara, of travel and love against a backdrop of her lovely plucking guitar style complimented by her smoky voice. Her last song we clicked along like her professional percussionists, nice touch Miriam -interactive and we loved it!"
" 'Bookmarks' represent's an artist who's at the beginning of a very long career. If the huge success of Laura Marling and the current love for Lucy Rose proves anything it's that there's a market for the music of Miriam Donohue and I wish her every success for 'Bookmarks' and beyond. "
"Miriam recently released her debut Ep Bookmarks, which showcases her skills as an acoustic guitarist and as a writer of intelligent, imaginative lyrics". Kernan Andrews, Galway Advertiser
