PRESS KIT - ABI MUIR
With "distinctive, goosebump inducing vocals"..."Muir has an angelic voice that effortlessly soars into falsetto at times" .
In Stockholm she explores "a darker, harder edge to her music: smouldering, intense alt-rock that has an immense, colossal-sounding sonic landscape, Muir's piercing, sultry vocals also add a feverish power to Stockholm that makes it sizzle with an intoxicating maelstrom of competing emotions".

Abi Muir - Biography
Abi Muir is a singer songwriter with distinctive vocals and heartfelt lyrics that immediately hook the listener and captivate her audience. Her love of writing and reading fantasy fiction has shaped her creative lyricism which she delivers with powerful, goosebump-inducing vocals enticing the listener to join her on a journey through the wistful, dreaminess of her debut single heebiejeebies, to her powerful, darkly moving award-winning rock track Stockholm. An “intoxicating maelstrom of competing emotions” were delivered in Abi’s debut EP To You; delving deeply into the many facets of love; a cleverly written story of falling in love, losing yourself over love and being trapped by love, an emotional rollercoaster of lyrics, with musical richness and drama.
