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!
Having just finished a year at Access Music Project in Galway city, she has just released her Debut EP BOOKMARKS this year, and has been touring it around the country while supporting David Hope on his "Scarecrow" Album launch tour.

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
