Be There for Me

Mariam is a singer/songwriter and self taught guitarist hailing from South London. Described as ‘atmospheric soul’, her music is the perfect blend of soul, folk and pop with thought provoking lyrics.

Mariam has always had a strong passion for words, writing poetry and creative pieces at a young age. She was quick to understand that she had a natural gift to combine rhythmic melodies with meaningful words, an ability she credits to her Nigerian heritage. She adds “Nigerians are natural story tellers, it is an art that is passed down and learned within the family and community, hearing stories has been a prominent fixture in my life just as strong as music. Music is such a powerful way to tell stories and relate to others, and I love how words come together to paint pictures”.

In 2011, Mariam decided it was finally time to share her music with the world and introduce herself as a singer/songwriter. She got well acquainted with the underground scene and started playing open mic nights.  These experiences turned into opportunities and Mariam joined the ‘London Community Gospel Choir’ (who has supported artist such as Tom Jones, Sam Smith and more) and started working on original material with local artists (including British artist Samm Henshaw).

The soulful singer/songwriter is now proud and ready to share her debut EP; a mature piece of work full of vocal grit and depth. Mariam managed to find the right balance between vulnerability and strength without losing her unique soulful sound that is her own. Mariam adds ‘The EP was birthed out of a heart to heart that myself and the producer had on our first session. I shared about my disappointment of my initial EP not working out, the highs and lows of being a solo artist and just about life.This is my way of bringing everyone in on that conversation, it is the fruit of it and something I am proud to share.’ Her debut EP ‘Heart To Heart’ is now available on all digital platforms. Make sure you stream her video below and as always….

Food 4 Thought

When first creating Da Bassment Blog our intentions was to create a platform for underground artist to showcase their talent, while giving an outlet to unsigned artist who spoke from the heart with a raw un-filtered emotion that hasn’t been tampered or manipulated from record executives and corporations. In our 8 month endeavor we have found much success connecting new artist with fans, most being heard for the first time. This way was working well but we wanted to push the envelope and take it a step further. We wanted to transform Da Bassment Blog from digital to tangible, so we reached out to local artist Aziza, Izzy, Siri, Jumanji and Perez to be apart of Da Bassment Blog talent show case and mixer. ‘Food 4 Thought’ A captivating event for those who embody creativity, expression and revolution of ideas that captivate the senses and stimulates the mind.
