My name is Donna Marie ,
I am a singer/songwriter from Wexford .. I have been performing since the age of 11 and writing since i turned 17.
I lost my voice for almost 4 years due to getting vocal nodules,my friends/family all fund raised to help send me to London to have them removed. I used the 4 years to write a lot and now 2 years later my voice is completely healed. I have DIY released 3 self penned singles that thankfully made it to the number 1 spot on the country iTunes chart.
I need to raise funds to record and release a new single " Life Is Good". As you can imagine it costs quiet a lot to do this and give it good PR "Record label" but without the record label !! ...
"Life Is Good" is a quirky, upbeat song that I think (hope) you are going to love as much as I do , I could burst with excitement getting to the studio and getting it out to you all ..
You have all been so supportive of my music since I started almost 20 years ago and I can not thank you enough for that ...
If you have already pledged to my project thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you are considering pledging thank you from the bottom of my heart, and if you cannot pledge, that is quiet alright! Maybe you could share my project video with your friends and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that !
Here's a little backround on my music so far :
My First recording was at the age of 11 on my parents cassette tape! After that I joined their country band " The Nighthawks".
I sang with the school choir all through primary and secondary school.
I was a member of cover bands Strange Behavior & Breeze Junkie for many years.
In 2009 I took part in "The All Ireland Talent Show" and made it to the live final on RTE.
Since then I have shared stages with such artists as ,The Stunning , Bagatelle , Davey Artur & The Furys , Brian Kennedy , Derek Ryan , Michael J Cloke , Gerry Carney ,The Saw Doctors , The Jades , David O Connor , The Druids and many more along with my own nationwide gigs, and performances on live Radio, Festivals, Aras an Uachtarain, Internet shows,
And TV Shows Such as The Phil Mac Show , Irish TV, The Late Late Show & Ireland AM.
I have been lucky enough over the years to record with such artists as Shane Lynch (Boyzone), Aongus Ralston, Johnny Boyle ,Roberta Howett , Kerian Wilde ,Fiachra Trench ,Bill Shanley ,Keith Duffy ,Jason Duffy, Gavin Ralston , Peter Devlin ,Ciran Byrne ,Gerry Carney , Michael J Cloke and more.
But I feel like my journey is just beginning !
Love & Luck
