Learn more about Abi Muir
Abi Muir immediately hooks the listener with goosebump-inducing vocals reminiscent of Ariana Grande and Hayley Williams, captivating her audience with her unique indie-pop sound. From the wistful, dreaminess of her debut single heebiejeebies, to her high energy, subtly sarcastic dance track First Date, Abi’s creative storytelling from her youthful perspective releases a rush of emotions and memories for her audience.
From humble Highland beginnings on the tiny Isle of Barra in Scotland, and at only a young age, Abi has already managed to collect an incredible number of accolades to her name, including: an international win in Unsigned Only, Winner of a John Lennon Award in the Rock category, a Finalist in the International Song writing competition and a Finalist in the Queensland Music Awards, as well as multiple wins for her music video First Date.
Having caught the attention of industry professionals and being the recipient of a Regional Arts Development Grant, she has worked for the last year on writing and producing her 5-song debut EP with her band, whilst also completing her grade 12 exams! The first single off her EP takes listeners back to the Y2K era with creative storytelling and a 2000 indie-pop vibe, telling the familiar story of seeing an old lover after a long period of time. With dramatic strings and a powerful drum line supporting the emotive vocals, this single shows the growth and maturity developing in this young singer.
Abi’s debut EP is scheduled for release early 2022 and will see the launch of a new Australian pop sensation.
She is the 2020 winner of the Cairns Regional Council Australia Day Junior Cultural Award, and is locally recognised as a triple threat performer, captivating those who have seen her on stage. Abi was the only student from Cairns selected as a Featured Vocalist at Creative Generation 2019, Queensland’s largest youth performing arts show at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. Here, she impressed the industry panel of judges with her vocal skills, stage presence and performance dedication, and from this was also selected as a featured soloist, making her TV debut in their highlights show on Channel 10.
After winning the Cairns Dinner Theatre Singing competition in January 2018, Abi was inspired to start writing and recording her own songs in her parents garage. Following on from the success of heebiejeebies, she gained popularity collecting fans and followers from 72 countries around the world, and has been placed on over three thousand playlists. Her homemade video for this song won the Port Shorts Film Festival Music Video Shout Out Award. With a growing audience.
