ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Miriam Jones has a way of singing the soul back home without putting it to sleep.
Poppy and light? Yes. Soulful and reflective? Indeed. Folky and human? Absolutely. Jones has a particular gift for writing earth and angels side by side, and the voice to sounding them so.

Jones, a Canadian, completed her first full-album effort in 2005 entitled Sign & Semblance. A track from the album called Squander caught the attention of Canadian Television’s Falcon Beach producers who then featured it in the show's 11th episode. Learning from the song’s popularity, Jones began honing her songwriting form in its footsteps. Two years later she flew to Nashville to complete her follow-up album, Being Here, under award winning producer and songwriter Charlie Peacock. Jones then returned to Vancouver where CBC picked up the album and featured Jones as ‘artist of the week’. Several songs from the record have been contracted for use by various North American indie film-makers, and Jones has recently moved to the UK to promote the album.

"Miriam Jones' sophomore album ‘Being Here’ is a well-written, well-produced effort that found its way onto our playlist moments after arriving in the mail. Jones' strong songwriting lends itself to a seamless blending of country and pop sensibilities on what is in essence, a lovely folk album. ‘Being Here’ is a fun, sometimes poignant, and entirely enjoyable effort from one of the West Coast's rising young artists."

North By Northwest - CBC Radio ONE

"Miriam isn't just mining the usual female singer-songwriter vein. She's got some fresh ideas, rhythmically and harmonically. It was a privilege to be a part of her new project. I hope lots of people find this music. It's got beauty and surprise all in one package. Which is a lot like life, right?"

Great Gift
My husband had the pleasure of working with Miriam during a summer concert series at Regent College. He enjoyed her music so much that we thought it would make a great gift for my brother. I just got word that my brother officially downloaded the album to his ipod, which is the ultimate sign of approval! Thanks, CD Baby, for making it easy to access Miriam's artistry!
