“All lilting folk tunes overlaid with sprightly Kora (West African harp) playful strings and dreamy three part harmonies as though Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon had convened in a Bamako back street. “ – The Guardian December 2021
Miriam Lieberman Trio return to The Street Theatre with acclaimed new album Just Transforming – West African influences blend seamlessly with blues-infused melodies & soaring vocal harmonies in the music Miriam Lieberman’s songs are soulful collections of stories, beautifully told through kora, guitar & Lieberman’s unmistakable voice. Trio members appearing Lara Goodridge ( Baby et Lulu/ FourPlay) & Lara Norman add luscious vocal harmonies & soaring violin arrangements. Together they offer a powerful soundscape.
“When Miriam Lieberman sings “lay your burden down” on this album’s first song, Infinite We Are, it is as much a gentle exhortation as it is a call to arms. With its palette of celestial strings, lush harmonies, twinkling piano arpeggios and soft indie beats, there is a hypnotic, ever-shifting quality to Lieberman’s work that gives the impression that “transforming” is not something that frightens her.” – SMH – Pick of the Week – Spectrum 4.5 stars
