Tipperary girl Mimi Lane has begun to make a name for herself as “the little woman with the big voice”. A sound that pulls at the heart strings while confusing the natural expectations of pop. With a darkness in her lyrics and melodies, Mimi sings with a whole voice, using her entire range to express her deepest emotions. Singing from the soul is at the heart of this girls music. Her songs are written on piano and are built into massive dark pop ballads, combining her love for film and classical music with her passion for pop artists such as Sia and Adele, Mimi is forging a path in the music industry that she hopes will break boundaries.
“Mimi is amazing. Definitely a Kate Bush vocal range, but I can really hear a Prince influence in there too. It’s just wonderful to hear quality vocals, control of voice and a confidence in vibrato and seamlessly climbing and descending her stunning vocal range” - Jen Smith, Writer.
“Big on ambition and sound, the full-tilt pop production of ‘I’m So Scared’ makes an instantly attention-grabbing introduction from Mimi Lane, as the song moves from gentle reserved verses to large-scale choruses that swing for the fences, and finally to a powerful crescendo brought to life by Lane’s magnetic vocal performance. A truly remarkable debut, Mimi Lane’s music is brimming with soaring vocals, wide-open harmonies and hook-filled beats. All of which leaves the listener wanting to press play again and again.” - Stephen White, The Last Mixed Tape.
“(I’m So Scared) is rich with gorgeous harmonies and backing vocals and Mimi shows off her seemingly effortless range with lots of vocal embellishments. This song is reminiscent of a classic Paloma Faith pop ballad with its delicate verses leading to powerful choruses.” - Kym Duignan, Mnásome.
