Emerging songstress Miriam Nyarko unveils infectious new single - ‘Built On You’
Introducing 20-year-old Hertfordshire-based singer, songwriter, actress, and dancer Miriam Nyarko with her brand new single, ‘Built On You’. You may remember Miriam Nyarko as Miri in the Disney and BBC series Almost Never, or from playing a young Nala in the West End musical The Lion King, or from touring with the Royal Shakespeare Company on their award-winning shows, including The Boy In The Dress, and Matilda: The Musical.
What you may not know, however, is that the British, Ghanaian, and Bajan native is also emerging as a rising singer and songwriter to watch in the UK’s R&B and Gospel music scenes. Her new single ‘Built On You’ is an infectious musical offering driven by Miriam’s exquisite voice, her R&B-fuelled harmonies and melodies, lush guitar arrangements, afrobeat-tinged percussion drums, and an uplifting faith-filled message.
Speaking about the inspiration behind her latest track and how the song came about, Miriam Nyarko says,
“The track was created in under half an hour and has become one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. It was inspired by my Bible verse for 2023, Matthew 7:25, which says, ‘The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundations on the rock’. 'Built On You' is my personal testimony shared to inspire anyone listening. This is my love story, my faith story, declaring that God is my firm foundation”.
Miriam Nyarko found her passion for music at the very early age of four when she started singing at her local church. She quickly unearthed her penchant for acting and dancing soon after and was starring in her first West End musical at age 10. Miriam also started honing her songwriting skills from a very young age, winning a songwriting competition that gave her the chance to perform a piece of original music at the renowned Royal Albert Hall when she was only fourteen. Following her debut single ‘Step By Step’ in 2020, she is ushering in her new musical universe with the brand new ‘Built On You’. Highly recommended if you like the sounds of Tori Kelly, H.E.R, or Madison Ryann Ward.
Written and composed by Miriam Nyarko, and produced by Samuel Jinadu, who has also worked with the likes of MOBO Award winner Still Shadey and The Voice UK winner Annatoria; 'Built On You is now available on your preferred streaming platform.
