Marie Conniffe has incorporated the theme of hummingbirds into her creative life for almost 20 years now and her new single “The Way of the Hummingbird” continues with this tradition.

Referencing the fact that hummingbirds are the only birds that can fly backwards, Conniffe says of the song that “it’s about realising you may have gone wrong or made a bad decision somewhere along the way so it’s about trying to retrace your steps and going back and sorting stuff out and trying to start again afresh.”

Originally hailing from Dunboyne, Co. Meath, Marie Conniffe has lived a somewhat nomadic existence since her travels first brought her to Seoul, South Korea, in the autumn of 2004. It was in Korea that Conniffe began to make real progress with her songwriting, aided in no small way by the purchase of her Crafter Hummingbird guitar at Nagwon Music Market in Insadong that following spring.

Conniffe’s songs reveal themselves as extremely personal and insightful stories of love, life and beautiful truths. Her voice provides a deeper understanding and realisation of our potential as human beings, which stems from Conniffe’s own spiritual journey. In her writing, she incorporates themes of love, adventure, magic, nature, the beauty of human relationships, the sadness that comes from loss, and the power of words.

Conniffe returned to Korea in 2016 where she enjoyed a prolific creative spell, the fruits of which included her new song. She went into the studio at Beardfire Music in Dublin in the summer of 2021 to record the song with Rohan Healy & Al Quiff. The resulting track is optimistic and energetic, heavy on the harmonies - as per usual for Conniffe – and brimming with hope for a fun-filled future!

“The Way of the Hummingbird” goes live on all platforms at midnight, Friday, 18th March 2022.
