Miriam Waks CD Launch
New York-based Miriam Waks returns to Oz for the release of her first originals album, ‘Tales from a Room’.
Recorded in Nashville and New York, ‘Tales from a Room’ features 11 original songs penned by Miriam, marking her transition from song-interpreter to song-writer. She traverses a wide range of musical and thematic landscapes including paying homage to her first love - Music, assuming the mythical identity of Achilles’ lover Patroclus, re-interpreting the feminist writings of Virginia Woolf, and playfully exploring her own “whiteness”.
Through this musical offering Miriam’s strong sense of narrative and poetry take centre-stage, continuing a musical storytelling tradition reminiscent of artists such as Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell.
Miriam sings in 17 languages and has performed at venues and residencies across the globe including New York, France, Cuba, Brussels, Edinburgh, London, Italy, India, Macau, & Hong Kong.
