Today we’re delighted to announce the third of our three new ambassadors – Máiréad! Máiréad is an artist who we’ve featured regularly at Belles and Gals and you might have seen her play live at some of our gigs recently (both Belles and Gals events and in sponsoring her ‘Unplugged’ series of events).
Having first featured the singer back in 2017, we’ve seen the Irish singer go on to become one of the most talented artists on the UK scene, with regular slots at some of the best events in the UK. Máiréad is on the verge of releasing new music, and having had an exclusive glimpse, we are convinced that the newest Belles and Gals ambassador is destined for real and sustained success in the industry. We’re lucky to have her!
The singer will be appearing at the next Belles and Gals showcase too, so you won’t have to wait long to hear those wonderful Irish tones.
Máiréad: “I’m absolutely delighted to be a Belles and Gals ambassador. Everyone in UK Country family knows how much Belles and Gals do for women in country music. They’ve supported me since the beginning and I could not be prouder to join the Belles and Gals family myself.”
Máiréad is a modern country singer-songwriter who was born and raised in Country Tyrone, Northern Ireland where Irish folk and Country music was always a huge part of her culture and family life.
Máiréad has been singing since a very young age, begging her mother to enroll her in singing lessons at the age of 7 and trekking up and down the length and breadth of Ireland to compete in competitions, where she was often complimented for her ability to convey the story of a song through her singing.
Máiréad has a love for Irish / American Folk and Country music. She takes inspiration from artists such as Christy Moore, Cara Dillion, Mary Black, Leanne Rimes, Miranda Lambert and Randy Travis. Her Irish folk twist on modern country music is what sets her apart from other artists in the current market.
Máiréad moved to London a few years ago and has been working hard creating her debut album and is excited to share her music with the ever growing Irish and British Country Music scene soon!
