Review: Miriam Jones – Reach For The Morning

Jones, hailing from British Columbia, delivers an interesting record which opens with a take on ‘Who Will Buy’ from the musical Oliver! Jones’ interpretation of the classic track is sombre with a jazz feel to it. Her vocals cutting through that electric guitar based track. The single ‘Room In My House’ is a particular highlight on the record, her vocal control is great as a simple production frames that unique sound. She also includes a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Lord Protect My Child’ which again she interprets and delivers in her own way, putting her own stamp on the track. It’s a record full of faith and hope with the lyrics in her original track as vibrant as the cover art to the record. The simple production though effective was probably in part due to the lockdown restrictions at the time that she was recording the album in her home studio. She played all the instruments herself and has done a stellar job on the production front. This is a really strong record from Jones and I look forward to hearing more from her in future.
