The video sees Donohue wander through a picturesque forest scene, delighting passers-by with her honest and agile vocals.
Miriam Donohue’s music is inspired by the likes of Regina Spektor, Paul Simon and Suzanne Vega, and is a blend of modern folk, pop and jazz that is brought to life by her enchanting voice. A natural raconteur, Miriam breathes music into her stories with her well-crafted lyrics and velveteen vocals.
The Galway-born songstress has performed at a number of festivals across Ireland such as Electric Picnic, Body and Soul and Castlepalooza as well as other venues throughout Ireland and Europe including Whelan’s and Club Voltaire in Germany. She was selected by Hot Press as one of the top upcoming Irish acts in 2017.
Dublin-based Donohue has supported acts such as Martha Wainwright, Nina Persson from The Cardigans, Mark Geary, John Spillane, Jack L, The Lost Brothers, Rose Cousins and The 4 of Us.
Her debut album, Paperscapes, was released last year and was recorded and produced by top Irish producer/musician Gavin Glass.
Donohue’s latest video, ‘Born to Love,’ is the directorial debut of Lorri Ann King. King was greatly inspired by the videos of artists such as Lisa Hannigan and pop rock band Haim. Watch the video, which was released earlier this year, below. The song, which comes from Paperscrapes, is available to stream now on Spotify and iTunes.
