    is with much excitement that Miriam launches her new album 'Birds of the Moon' in Melbourne alongside violinist Lara Goodridge and cellist Kate Adams on vocal harmonies and soaring string arrangements. Opening the afternoons festivities are the wonderful high energy West African dance troupe Wasawumba from Melbourne Djembe. This is an all ages event. The show is the last performance of a two month national tour to promote the album. This is going to be a very special event so be sure to book your ticket! http://www.trybooking.com/Booking/BookingEventSummary.aspx?eid=91875 Doors open 3pm for 3.30pm start. The album was Radio National album of the week and has received rave reviews so far... THE WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN 5th July 2014 – Tony Hillier – 4 STARS Birds of the Moon 4 stars DISTINGUISHING Sydneysider Miriam Lieberman from a veritable assembly line of local singer-songwriters is the fact she accompanies herself on kora as well as guitar. The 21-string West African harp adds distinctive colouring to her melodious, travel-inspired songs. On Birds of the Moon, her fourth album, Lieberman’s kora works symbiotically with her associates, violinist Lara Goodridge and cellist Kate Adams. Employing glissandos, her accompanists add subtle Indian flavouring to several tracks, most notably Benta, a traditional Guinean song that Lieberman, who has studied in West Africa, sings in language over a basic kora figure. In Incantation, her unusual instrument sounds closer to that of a Celtic harp. Kora intertwines sublimely with the other strings in the bluesy title track. It lends an apposite Mexican lilt to Butterfly Boy — given that song’s geographic setting — without resorting to pastiche. Adopting a lower vocal register provides a nice contrast to preceding tracks, while the phrasing and tone brings to mind Joni Mitchell. Welcome vocal harmony bookends a poetic paean to the return of summer (Summertime Again): “Like a lover you warm my skin/ Open the window, I breathe you in”. Encased in a catchy African rhythm, Sweet the Rain exudes similar sensuality. Based on a drum ‘n’ bass groove, Varanasi has a more forbidding lyrical thrust. The combined production and multi-instrumental acumen of Josh Schuberth (Josh Pike, Alex Lloyd, Tim Freedman) adds value to Lieberman’s finest album, one in which her beautiful voice is rightfully front of the mix. Tony Hillier More on the Music.. Miriam has been described as “something of a renaissance woman ……Somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.” (Sydney City News). Miriam Lieberman is a singer songwriter with a unique perspective. She accompanies her powerful vocals with kora ( 21-stringed African harp) and acoustic guitar, performing as a soloist and with her trio: Kate Adams (Cellist) and Lara Goodridge (Violinist). Despite this unusual mix of pure classical instruments and something made from a large gourd strung with fishing line there is a musical chemistry between these players and their instruments that melds into a soaringly beautiful soundscape. Miriam’s music blends well-crafted songs with powerful and emotive performance. Her unique musical style has developed out of long periods of time spent immersed in the distant places and cultures of the music that inspires her and most of all out of a passion for song writing and performance. In Miriam’s latest album Birds of the Moon these influences are the layers underneath what is Australian contemporary folk music with a somewhat cosmopolitan undertone. The concert marks the release of Miriam’s fourth album, BIRDS OF THE MOON in August 2014. The album has been produced at Endomusia studios by Josh Schuberth. At the forefront are Miriam Hechtman m’s soulful vocals, 21 string African harp (kora) and percussive styled guitar as well as Kate Adams and Lara Goodridge on cello and violin. Added is the hypnotic percussion and bass played by Schuberth. There is a blend of beautiful filmic arrangements as well as stripped back songs of just kora and voice. Prepare for an album that travels in mood from the sinister beauty of the Indian city of Varanasi, A Mexican love story and the bright hope of dawn.

    It is with much excitement that Miriam launches her new album Birds of the Moon with Lara Goodridge & Kate Adams at The Woman of The World Conference – Part of a national tour promoting the new release. BE SURE TO BOOK YOUR TICKETS SOON http://www.gyracc.org.au/ IF YOU CANT MAKE IT TO THE DARWIN LAUNCH SEE THE BOTTOM OF THIS INVITE FOR OTHER TOUR DATES AROUND THE COUNTRY. African influences blend seamlessly with blues-infused melodies and soaring vocal harmonies in the new album by Sydney singer song-writer Miriam Lieberman. Set for release on August 2nd , Birds of the Moon is a soulful collection of stories, beautifully told through strings, African kora and Lieberman’s unmistakable voice. The stories speak of Lieberman’s musical journey, which has taken her from Mali, where she studied the kora – A west-African harp with a beautiful, evocative tone – to central India, and South America. These places have left an imprint on Lieberman’s musical style, but Birds of the Moon, her fourth album, has a catchiness and contemporary tone that is entirely her own, travelling in mood from the sinister beauty of the Indian city of Varanasi, to a Mexican love story, to the bright hope of dawn. Melded perfectly with Lieberman’s warm, sensual voice are the cello, violin and rich vocal harmonies of Kate Adams (Naked without my Cello/ Tantrum Fantasy) and Lara Goodridge (Baby et Lulu/Four play) The trio, which will be touring the album following release, have an irresistible musical chemistry, blending the kora, western strings and vocal harmonies, which soar into the sublime at moments of musical climax. The album has been produced at Endomusia studios by Josh Schuberth (Josh Pyke, Alex Lloyd, Brooke Fraser, Tim Freedman) and will be available through MGM online and in record stores. “ Her songs are beautifully melodic, richly textured but can have pointed themes….
