East-African Born Singer-songwriter Miriam Chemmoss Releases Capital Album “Lovebird”

Singer-songwriter Miriam Chemmoss has released her newest, long-playing and principal record, “Lovebird,” on Black Pearl Music. The album is a celebration of everything decent about humankind, the beauty of peace, of love, and of unity, and it provides a well-suited collection of anthems and lyrics to this end. Chemmoss’ record includes 15 original tracks comprising very nearly an hour of extremely melodic music.
The music of Miriam Chimmoss is easygoing without being flippant, marrying the upbeat, youthful positivity of Sheryl Crow to the maturity of clarion-voiced chanteuses like Dido or Whitney Houston. Perhaps most prominent, however, “Lovebird” is a display of musical culture in general, with homages to certain traditions standing out among Chemmoss’ collection of tunes. Reggae is represented, as is salsa, hip hop, rumba, soukous, and American pop, all with their own distinct and unmistakable flavors.

Her lyrics are also multicultural, with Swahili lyrics intertwining between her English lines with a resulting elegance that would perhaps not otherwise be possible. Her individual character is most plainly to be heard in the short skit, “ET Phones Home,” in which the famous extraterrestrial, here heard as a young female through an autotune effect, calls his (or her) parents to ask for help getting home, travel plans having gone awry here on Earth. Chemmoss also wears her heart on her sleeve in “Ode to Daddy,” a deeply moving and earnest psalm to her father. Her home language is perhaps most beautifully showcased here.

Of the moral her album might portray to her listeners, Chemmoss says simply, “My single message is the urgency of peace, love and unity. It is a call to love oneself and others responsibly and bravely.” There are complex and conscientious ideas in her music, too. “There’s encouragement to leave the drama of the past behind,” she writes, “not to wait for tomorrow but to embrace the present; it is a gift! Then, there are songs that inspire us to say yes to life, yes to peace, yes to freedom, yes to protecting the environment and yes to our differences.”
