Hailing from Limerick, the Irish city that is producing some of the top talents in the country at the minute, multi-instrumentalist (piano, accordion and guitar!) Michelle Grimes arrived on the scene with a voice, panache and Pop / R’n’B sensibility that instantly appeals to the repeat button.
So much so that she went straight onto playlists across the country from Fm104, Live95, LMFM, Corks 96 and C103 as their Select Irish Artist of the Month aswell as gracing the airwaves across BBC (Track of the week), 2FM, Spin and many more.
No stranger to the stage, Michelle has performed in Trafalgar Square to over 20,000 spectators as part of ‘Pride in London’, has sung for the King and Queen of Belgium as well as singing for The Taoiseach and the U.S Presidential party in June last year when they visited Ireland.
Michelle just smashed it at the overall International International Radio Charts in Ireland landing at #17 on the Top 20 most played Artist on Irish radio right now sitting up there with Ariana, Joel Corry, Dermot Kennedy, Dua Lipa and other stars. She is also #8 in the Top 20 Fm104 Irish Charts across the Dublin Radio station. And in the at #3 in the breakers charts on Irish radio!!!
Michelle also counts well known celebrities as fans, the likes of Denise Van Outen described her vocal tone as simply ‘gorgeous’. Louis Walsh described her as a pure popstar who ticks all the boxes and Simon Cowell gave her the thumbs up himself!
Sounding like a hybrid of her musical influences Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa and Beyoncé, Grimes delivers a pop gem on her new single ‘Going Going Gone’.
This song is about being deeply in love. It speaks about finding a love so strong it is almost transcendent. ‘Going Going Gone’ refers to going past the point of no return in a relationship, where you realise you are completely head over heels for this person.
Grimes says: “I absolutely love ‘love’! and writing this song was such a fun and creative experience. To me, this song is essentially a modern-day love song with a strong beat and good vibe”.
‘Going Going Gone’ was Mixed by Ben Wanders and mastered by Richard at Wav Mastering and is out now, across all digital platforms.
