About

Miryam is a twenty-three-year-old aspiring singer/songwriter living and working in the Greater Houston area. She previously performed for and with such local Houston talent as Kelly Zwern, Savercool, and This Intangible Existence. Her first song, “Jealous Yahweh,” was recorded in August of 2017 with John Ebdon’s Christian Songwriters in the Round, and her most recent appearance saw her featured alongside Savercool on a re-working of This Intangible Existence’s single, “River Hymn.”

Miryam’s journey with songwriting began at age eight when she was gifted her first guitar, and grew to a treasured pastime after acclimating to the more musically accessible piano. A largely self-taught pianist, she has been playing by ear since her earliest remembrances.

While main influences CCM acclaimed Sara Groves, and alt-pop voice-of-the-youth Lorde, inspired her formative sound, friendship with fellow artist This Intangible Existence (referred to here as Terrell) introduced a rich tapestry of formal training, the power of on-brand iconography, and seasoned perspective to her songwriting process. 

            In the past, she has performed as a cover artist at coffee houses, and sat as one of two pianists on call for her church. Any original music will be released in due time under her first name (stylized MRYM).

As a Christian and an artist, her goal is to speak openly and honestly about all that following Christ has entailed for her since surrendering her life to Jesus. The cost of such a decision is plainly felt for the ones here on earth that are "just passing through." Her hope is that her stories, both written and sung, will reach those waiting for art that gets them.
