Who Will Buy

Miriam Jones Album Cover with LP

Who will buy this wonderful morning?
Such a sky you never did see!
Who will tie it up with a ribbon,
And put it in a box for me?

–Lionel Bart, Who Will Buy from Oliver

In the hubbub of the past week, I forgot to mention that the new album, Reach For the Morning, from singer/songwriter Miriam Jones was released last Friday. It is a wonderful group of work from Miriam that has been garnering glowing reviews. I received my copy of the vinyl version last week (with the CD tucked inside) and the album looks and sounds great. I am really pleased with how the artwork for the cover turned out and would like to say that the album cover has something to do with the reception thus far for the album, but it is all due to Miriam’s talent and effort.

Miriam starts a tour of the UK in July to promote the album.

You can buy the vinyl limited edition version of the album via the link below. It is also available on most streaming services such as Apple Music, Pandora, iHeart and You Tube Music.

I am sharing the most recent release from the album today. It’s Who Will Buy which is from the musical Oliver. I really like Miriam’s interpretation of the song which was a big production number in the play and film. She transforms the song into something new and personal, making it her own, something she has a knack for in her covers. She does a stunning version of Bob Dylan’s Lord Protect My Child on this album, as well.

So, give a click to the play button below and enjoy Miriam Jones and Who Will Buy. Not a bad way to start your Wednesday.
