For Irish singer/songwriter Miles Graham, music has always offered tremendous solace in moments of struggle. As a child raised in hard times on the outskirts of Dublin, he immersed himself in American soul records as an escape from his troubled surroundings, eventually creating his own songs and earning major buzz with his BBC Radio 2.
Over the years, he’s also enraptured audiences with his unforgettable voice, a velvet-smooth and soulful instrument that’s made him an in-demand artist in the dance world, as evidenced by his cutting-edge collaborations with leading artists like L’Tric including the 2016 breakthrough hit, ‘1994’ and their recent single ‘She Is Gold’.
Earlier this month Miles Graham’s ‘Yeah, We’re Gonna Get out of It’ was revealed as one of six songs hoping to represent Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest in May.
“I wrote the song around April/May 2020 while on the first lockdown at home with my kids. I’m so proud of this song and the way it organically came about. It’s got a real sense of hope and community about it”.
Miles will perform the new track on a special Late Late Show on Friday 4 February, where the winner will be chosen by a combination of national jury, international jury and public vote.
Now at work on his first full-length effort, Graham hopes that the healing he experienced in creating his music might ultimately transfer onto his audience.
“Making music is definitely therapy for me. If I couldn’t do it, I don’t think I’d actually be here right now given my journey so far,” he says. “One thing that always keeps me going is the melody. how, even when a song’s about pain and struggle and hardship, the melody still always carries some kind of hope. If people can listen to my songs and come away feeling that HOPE, be inspired by a story or melody and come away with that, then I’m happy”
