Miriam Bryant has been singing her whole life, but only wrote her first song (with childhood friend and now-producer Victor Radstrom) in December 2011 for a high school project. That track — the sultry, haunting ballad “Finders, Keepers” — went on to spend more than 20 weeks on the German Top 100 and led to sold-out gigs across Germany and her native Scandinavia. The song also brought her to the attention of multi-platinum artist, producer/songwriter Zedd, who teamed with Bryant to rework “Push Play,” a track off her Scandinavian debut Raised in Rain, which was released in March. Bryant’s original version of “Push Play” is a platinum hit in Scandinavia, and the track has racked up more than 15 million Spotify plays in Sweden alone. Miriam will wrap 2013 with a November tour of Germany as she prepares for what’s sure to be a very big 2014.
