Miryam Solomon is a London-based singer and songwriter by way of Sweden and Eritrea. She released her debut EP back in 2014 titled Evergreen to critical acclaim. A short but sweet project, Evergreen showcased her talents as a vocalist and overall musician with a soft, rhythmic and tribal sound to accompany her gorgeous voice. She is back again with her first project in 3 years titled Magnolia. With features from the likes of Jean Berthon, Neil Charles, Tansay Omar, Shabaka Hutchings and Seb Rochford, this album has a more energetic and electronic vibe to it.
As Miryam Solomon says, “Magnolia is in many ways about endings and new beginnings. “I had these unfinished songs that needed resolution; either to be discarded or planted, so I decided to honour them.” It feels like a detailed sketchbook or collage of ideas, rhythms that have been developed properly into beautiful songs.
Miriyam Solomon’s Magnolia is definitely worth your time and support. Listen to her new EP below via Bandcamp.
