Limerick singer songwriter Michelle Grimes has just released her new single ‘Date Night’.

Multi-instrumentalist (piano, accordion and guitar!) Michelle Grimes arrives on the scene with a voice, panache and Pop / R’n’B 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’, 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.
