Miriam makes a welcome return to the Backroom Sessions having just released the first Single “Bookmarks” from her soon to be released debut album “Paperscapes”. The first single has been playlisted with RTE Radio 1 and is receiving extensive airplay in Ireland and abroad. A fine songsmith and an utterly charming performer, this is one act not to be missed.
“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.” HOTPRESS
Emma has just released her self-titled debut EP to a sold out show in Dolans’ of Limerick and will be making her first appearance at The Backroom Sessions. With a string of dates under her belt with rave reviews for her live performances, this will no doubt be another cracking performance from one of Limerick’s finest.
“…a songwriter of great depth and personal soul searching and a voice to match – a voice that exudes maturity beyond her years and yet implies a vulnerability and innocence.”
