The Good Room presents: CMAT at Cyprus Avenue 2022.
CMAT is the stage name of Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson, a global pop star who lives in Dublin with her grandparents, where she is currently recovering from an AliExpress addiction. Her influences include Dory Previn, John Grant, Paris Hilton, XTC and KFC.
Paste Magazine: “(CMAT) has made waves in very little time with her infectiously camp, tongue-in-cheek nature, evoking Dolly Parton and Lily Allen at the same time.”
Her debut single, the supremely catchy ‘Another Day (kfc)’, was released on April 22, swiftly followed by ‘Rodney’ - possibly the first single by a Finglas-based artist to reference dearly departed American stand-up Rodney Dangerfield - in June. The songs picked up mentions from a number of outlets, including Popjustice, Paste, The Sunday Times (Ireland) and Nialler9; radio support from Irish national stations 2FM and Today FM; and streaming support from Spotify, who added them to their NMF UK and Fresh Finds playlists, amongst others. Her third single, ‘I Wanna Be A Cowboy, Baby!’, was released on September 23.
Nialler9: “CMAT is the new Irish artist you need to know.”
