Galway City, County Galway
This is acoustic folk pop to soothe the soul. Miriam's music is instantly engaging and very genuine. It stands out effortlessly in a genre in which standing out is quite difficult, and her songs are very sweet and uplifting!
She was featured on TG4 music show Ceol ar an Imeall as an upcoming Irish musician to watch, and was chosen by the John Murray show on RTE Radio 1 to play at MetroHerald stage in Castlepalooza this year.
In a short space of time as a performer she has already supported fine acts such as Mark Geary, John Spillane, Jack L, Rose Cousins, Daniel Martin Moore and David Hope and made it to semi- finals of Youbloom song competition with her song Street Car (view her super sweet video here..) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RxhoAnVk3Lw
"Miriam recently released her debut Ep Bookmarks, which showcases her skills as an acoustic guitarist and as a writer of intelligent, imaginative lyrics" Galway Advertiser
