HEADFORD COUNTRY music singer-songwriter RIAH, known for her soaring vocals, catchy hooks, and modern take on country music, plays Monroe's BackStage Bar on Wednesday December 21.
RIAH (aka Mariah Butler ), grew up listening to country music and her influences include The Dixie Chicks and Garth Brooks. She was a contestant for Team Delores on the Voice of Ireland in 2014, an experience encouraged her to go to Nashville to soak up the city's music scene. It was a wise move as she won the title of 2014 Grand Champion on the American Country Star stage. In 2015, RIAH recorded her debut EP, On Sundays, which she released independently. It debuted at No 1 on the iTunes Irish Country Album chart.
Doors are at 9pm. Tickets are €10 via www.monroes.ie
