'The world is embracing a new age of female-led RnB excellence. Here in Sydney, Egyptian-Australian singer-songwriter-pianist Mariam Sawires is leading the charge.' - FBI Radio
Raised in a large family obsessed with music, Egyptian-Australian singer-songwriter, Mariam Sawires has valiantly picked up the talent torch to launch her own career. Together with her formal musical training and classical education in the bank, Sawires took off to travel the world alone, casually listing Berlin, France, Columbia, Japan and more, one of her many homes since 2012. With each new step across the world, Mariam’s journey twisted in a direction unlike the one before, with the impact of each new turn, right or wrong, marked on her personal and professional growth - France was rich with historical and inspiring, but lonely; Berlin a hub of creativity and musicality, but intense and easy to disappear within. Japan, however, was the most centring, spiritual experience she’s had to date. Wherever she settled, she built a new creative hub, workshopping ideas and finessing her sound. Together with her formal musical training and classical education in the bank, Sawires took off to travel the world alone, casually listing Berlin, France, Columbia, Japan and more, one of her many homes since 2012.
Her stories have been praised by triple j’s Richard Kingsmill, Unearthed, Double J, FBi Radio, Pilerats, Fashion Journal, Life Without Andy, Purple Sneakers, Sniffers Mag, LivewireAU and BIGSOUND. Now with her feet firmly planted back in Australia, Mariam Sawires is taking to the field she’s known she was always meant for and ready to thrive.
