BiographyEdit

Influenced by her British father's musical heritage and her Finnish mother's melancholy, Miriam Bryant began to write songs in November 2011 together with her childhood friend, Victor Rådström who is a producer and songwriter. Four months later, she produced three songs released in her single debut "Finders, Keepers" in March 2012 through the record label 100 songs.[1] The song received worldwide attention among bloggers and music sites.[citation needed] She's signed to Warner Music in Sweden and to Interscope Records in the United States.

She has collaborated with music producer and DJ Zedd, who first heard her on the German radio.[2] Zedd made a remix of her song "Push Play" on his re-released album.[3]

Bryant released her Push Play EP on 8 October 2013 through Interscope Records, her debut release in the United States. In 2015, Bryant was one of eight artists being involved in the programme Så mycket bättre on the Swedish commercial channel TV4.[4]

The single Black Car became a hit in homeland Sweden winning Song of the Year in 2016.[5] In 2017 Bryant was nominated for Best Live Act on the Swedish Grammis.[6] In 2018, British press wrote the following about her single—Clash magazine wrote "Highly Intelligent and completely infectious"[7] and The Line of Best Fit wrote "Miriam Bryant is your next pop superhero".[8] In 2018 she has played at Roskilde Festival,[9] The Great Escape Festival[10] to name a few.
