My name is Myriam. Thanks for visiting my website. I’ve took some time off from my musical career when I had a son with an unknown genetic disorder. I wanted to spend more time with him and being on stage didn’t really fit me at that time.
I’ve always loved making music, but I’ve never loved selling my music. It has always been a struggle to put content on my website and Facebook. So the last couple of years I’ve decided to only make the music I love and that’s it.
Last year I recorded a new song: ‘I’m not asking for the moon’. It’s about and also for my son Wybren. I recorded it on a beautiful country house together with: Jasper van Damme (Wybrens father), Jorn ten Hoopen, Thomas Pol and Frank Jonas. Singer-Songwriter Mark Lotterman made an intimate video with Wybren playing in our home.
About my musical life:
I’ve been playing music since I was a child and I’ve always loved playing piano and singing. I won the national competition ‘De Kunstbende’ as a teenager and when I was 19 the first song I wrote was chosen to be the title track of a movie called “Ik omhels je met duizend armen”, a movie from a book by Ronald Giphart. A big opportunity for me and I got signed with Universal Music.
I studied at Codarts conservatory in Rotterdam and did part of a masters degree in New Orleans. Being in New Orleans was one of the best experiences in my life. The way people make music is so openminded and it thought me a lot about what’s important when you’re a musician.
When I came back I recorded my first album with Bart van Poppel. That was a wonderful musical journey. I decided to join the TV- competition ‘De Beste Singer-Songwriter van Nederland’ in 2014 and made it to the finals. After this I performed a lot on beautiful stages in Holland and on television and radio.
