Miriam Speyer is a songwriter/multi-instrumentalist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Miriam’s musical roots go back to her early childhood in Michigan. She and her family would regularly sing hymns in four-part harmony for the members of their church. Although music always played an important role in her life, for many years Miriam’s primary creative outlet was visual art (drawing and painting). Then, in 2006, she borrowed a friend’s guitar and began teaching herself some basics.
That was all it took.
From that point on, Miriam was hopelessly captivated by music.
In 2009 she recorded and produced her first album, “Miriam Speyer & New Blend.”
Later that same year, she followed her musical passion to Brazil, a country whose music had provided her much inspiration. More recently, Miriam has honed her skills on the electric bass and can be found performing with several Bay Area bands.
