‘Lieberman is a robust singer with a sensual yet brittle undertone. Her songs are beautifully melodic, richly textured but can have pointed themes… Simply brilliant’ – ‘4 and a half stars’ – Jeff Glorfeld – THE AGE 2011
‘A true cross cultural hybrid… lovely.’ – ‘4 stars’ Seth Jordan – ABC Limelight Magazine Feb 2011
‘It’s a measure of Sydney sider Miriam Lieberman’s adventurous nature and her standing in West Africa, that she was able to recruit some of A -list Malian musicians for This is the story,’ – Tony Hillier – The Weekend Australian 2011
Miriam Lieberman is a Sydney based world singer songwriter with a unique global perspective. She has travelled to and immersed herself in the distant places and cultures of the music that inspires her throughout her life. Her explorative approach is complemented by soulful vocals and poignant lyrics as she swaps her self accompaniment between the celestial sounds of kora ( African harp) and percussive styled guitar. Equally at home as a soloist or with her stellar six-piece band on cello, violin, bass, percussion and djembe – the listener is taken on a musical journey that is both moving and uplifting.
