World pop star. Lives in Dublin with her grandparents. Currently recovering from an addiction to AliExpress.
Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson, aka CMAT, is revitalising country music by making it more fun, open and inclusive. With her American cowgirl look and a sharp sense of humour, the Dubliner takes great pleasure in breaking the codes of country, indie and pop music, claiming to be as much Dolly Parton as Katy Perry. She is one of the 20 MJF Spotlight artists to watch this year.
