For when you’re feeling social

MIRIAN‘s vision of making music to break the mould has finally come to fruition, breaking boundaries with a genre that’s hard to pinpoint. She isn’t quite urban but her music certainly draws from urban influences. She isn’t “poppy” but her songs are written in a pop-like manner. She isn’t R&B/Soul/Jazz/Folk but her voice is inspired by powerhouse vocalists like Lauryn Hill, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Nicks and Jill Scott. Stemming from her Syrian/Jordanian cultural roots, world music creates a unique influence alongside undertones of electronic, hip-hop, blues and folk. 

MIRIAN’s first single, Fuck This Guy, was produced by Toronto’s Tayo Jacob and it’s a blunt in-your-face kind of song that tells it like it is! Her latest single, That Girl, has 90s r&b vibes that will take you back. My favorite track so far is Stone with its catchy instrumental riffs; the song is reminiscent to Amy Winehouse  — it’s a hit!

The songstress has been active with live performances across Canada while making appearances through media platforms such at Stages Canada, CTV, Rogers TV, and various music blogs including Canadian Beats, Live in Limbo, BID Magazine, The Scene Magazine and more.
