Míde Houlihan is a Clonakilty bred singer songwriter, who has captured the hearts of many an Irish audience over the last number of years. Míde put herself on the map by winning the IMRO Christie Hennessy Songwriting Award in 2015, followed by some high profile support slots alongside the likes of FRED, Doug Paisley, as well as international cult star, Jenn Grant.
Her debut album ‘Coloured In’ was released shortly after, receiving an incredibly warm reception in the media as well as the general public, with most critics citing Míde’s honest, sometimes humorous, sometimes heart wrenching songwriting as a diamond in what can sometimes be a crowded scene.
In 2019, Míde signed with Cork's Unemployable Records, and released her EP, ‘Shifting Gears’, which saw her fanbase grow even more. The EP was launched in a sold out Coughlan's in Cork City, followed by tour dates in DeBarras (Clonakilty), Whelans, The Ruby Sessions (Dublin), Kenny's (Lahinch) and many more, as well as festival appearances at Quiet Lights, The Exchange (Hosted by Folk Alliance International), and The Clonakilty Intl Guitar Festival.
In 2020, Míde would join forces with Mick Flannery to co-write the single 'Idle Words', followed up by her latest single, 'Without Me'. Both songs were featured on the RTE Radio 1 Recommends List, as well as the latter being featured and playlisted by the likes of Hot Press, Golden Plec, The Last Mixed Tape and more.
