Miriams Well is a unique blend of rock and soul that holds echoes of decades gone by, when rock was raw, powerful and unprocessed. Singer and songwriter Mir German, doesn’t play a set so much as embody it, pulling the music from a deeper place – a well of sound and images, emotion and power, her voice riding a ragged edge of truth bringing depth and dimension to every song.
Mir and partner Mark Bowden, co-writer/producer/guitarist are an inseparable team of melody and groove. Miriams Well is their vision combined with the best musical talent Portland has to offer. What you get at a show isn’t just a performance…it’s an experience that dissolves the boundary between audience and band. It pulls you into the moment and holds you there.
Mir has performed at clubs and festivals throughout the US and Canada and was featured on MuchMusic in Canada. She has shared stages with Shawn Colvin, Carlene Carter, Spencer Davis, Taj Mahal, and Curtis Salgado to name a just a few.
Her first record “The New York Sessions” (recorded in Woodstock NY) features guest appearances by bassist Brad Houser (Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians), drummer Eric Parker (Bonnie Raitt/Joe Cocker)and guitarist Adam Widoff (Lenny Kravitz).
A move westward to Portland, OR, and a series of recording sessions for a 2006 EP led to the formation of Miriams Well. A rising regional profile and radio airplay brought Mir to the attention of veteran songwriter Lee Garrett (“Signed, Sealed, Delivered”). The combined efforts of Lee, Mir and Mark have debuted with the full length CD Indians and Clowns.
