Miriam Davidson

Miriam Davidson is a versatile singer/songwriter and educator on the Vancouver music scene. Her experience in jazz, pop and classical genres has given her music a distinctive sound. She released her sophomore album Second Take in May 2005.

In 1998 she recorded and produced her debut CD Subtexts featuring Jon Roper and Marc Rogers. All but three of the songs on the album were written by Miriam. She also sang background vocals for Rob Best's World Jive Big Band's CD "Motsola" in 1999. Miriam sang alto on the Laudate Singers CD releases Christmas Journey and Songs Of Heaven And Earth, A Baroque Christmas and a soon to be recorded release of Celtic music as well as on the Elektra Women’s Choir's CD A Child Of Grace. She continues to be a principal member of the Laudate Singers. In 2002, she toured Germany, Austria and Italy with the Capilano College Singers. In August 2003, she sang alto in the Festival Vancouver Chorus Gala Opening concert featuring world renowned conductor Helmuth Rilling conducting Schubert's Mass in A Flat. During the Christmas season, she sings in and manages an a cappella vocal ensemble Caminando as well as a seasonal solo voice & piano act.

Her new CD is much different than the jazz of her debut album. Second Take appeals to a wide range of musical tastes but it especially appeals to fans of Sarah Harmer's and Beth Orton's modern takes on the female singer songwriter genre.

Miriam performs her unique style of music all over the Vancouver area. She performs as solo voice and piano act as well as with her four piece band. Recently, she added harmony vocalists to her live show. This has produced beautiful and vocally lush sound. Her music is perfect for intimate settings, concerts and festivals.
