Aimee Quickfire Questions

Since the release of her debut single ‘Don’t Bother’ in March, Irish singer and songwriter Aimeé has found herself surging up the global charts. With a no.1 spot on iTunes on the day of release, she has also landed Spotify’s New Music Friday Playlist both the UK and Ireland, as well as additions to numerous playlists throughout the UK, US, Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Japan and Poland.
