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 arrives on the scene with a voice, panache and Pop / RnB sensibility that instantly sets her apart from her musical peers.
No stranger to the stage, Michelle has performed in Trafalgar Square to over 20,000 spectators as part of ‘Pride in London’. She 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 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 released on Oct 22nd, across all digital platforms.
