Album Notes
Miriam Allen spent two years travelling throughout Latin America holding live performances at venues such as the notorious communist-run "Casa de La Cultura" in Cuba, was a profiteering street musician in the "Plaza Francia" in Argentina, and even held a live radio broadcast on "Radio Publico" in the mountainous region of Huila, Colombia. Though performing mostly in the Carolinas these days, the musician still prefers adventurous gigs to profitable ones. While sharing her own down-home South Carolinian-Americana style with the Latin public, she performed with professional Latin musicians and absorbed a lot of sounds from around the Western Hemisphere. THE MOUNTAINS OF MENDOZA is somewhat of a travel log as most songs came out of an emotion or experience from this time period. The record is somewhat "folkier" than the newest cd, LA CAPITANA. However, for singers and listeners who hold lyrics in high regard, THE MOUNTAINS OF MENDOZA holds its own as an intelligent lyrical experience.

Oh man! I love this album!
Miriam is one part fun, one part social conscience, and one part quirk. Turn it up with the windows down, get out and dance a little at the stop light, listen carefully and ponder the dark through the lonely stretches, and share life's joys and pains with Miriam and her unique vocal style and creative music arrangements. She has taken the road less traveled and has produced an album part convertible, part bus-pass, and part old pickup truck. OK, maybe I've taken it too far with that theme. This album is just plain great music. Now, how far do I have to drive to see her live?

Growing up with Miriam was an adventure and she continues in her adult life to live it to the fullest and experience the world. Her music is a wonderful expression of the true individual she is. Performing in a park in her hometown or in Latin America, she is an entertainer for the whole family. Tune in to THE LADYBUG SONG and THE BALLAD OF BETSY AND ELIZABETH. Great songs! Keep doin' your thing Mickey! I'm so proud of you! Hope to catch a perfromance soon! - Calvin

This CD will transport your soul to every meaningful time, place, and emotion yo
The Mountains of Mendoza will transport your soul to every meaningful time, place, and emotion you have ever been to or experienced. Miriam's voice is intricately laced with full-bodied and robust emotion, penetrating intellect, an intriguing and mysterious secrecy, and soothing female charm. The subject matter perfectly balances earthly motiefs experienced through a plane of unusual spiritual enlightenment. The music is a pleasant, catchy, blend of several cultures which will instantly hook the listener into wanting more. Each time you listen to The Mountains of Mendoza, your experience will be different as Miriam's art begins to soothe your soul. I will definitely take a trip to Asheville to experience the show live! Take care, Billy
