“You couldn’t help but smile and be uplifted by their subtle yet joyous rhythms”
This is a singer songwriter who knows how to tell a story. With her soulful vocals, kora (21 string African harp) and percussive styled guitar, her music is both lyrical and uplifting. Added is the cello, violin and rich vocal harmonies of Kate Adams and Lara Goodridge.
Kate is an adept and versatile traditionally trained cellist who played alongside Miriam in the duo Naked Without My Cello.
Lara is not only singer/violinist of Baby et Lulu and FourPlay, she is an established session player, having performed with such luminaries as Glen Hansard, Brian Wilson and more. She has opened shows for the likes of The Corrs, Savage Garden, Youssou N’Dour, Art Garfunkel and Luka Bloom.
There is a strong musical chemistry between these players that effortlessly bridges the unconventional mix of kora (African harp) and Western classical instruments. Together they build lush harmonies and soaring string arrangements around Miriam’s songs.
“Miriam Lieberman is something of a renaissance woman ……somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.” Sydney City News.
