About Miriam Stockley
British singer Miriam Stockley has an ideal voice upon which to model a Vocaloid virtual vocalist. Given the list of artists Miriam has worked with - a list that includes such names as Tina Turner, Elton John, George Michael, Freddie Mercury, Chaka Khan, David Bowie, Seal and Adiemus - you may be surprised that you haven\'t heard her name before. One of the most distinctive voices in the music industry, Miriam has probably sung on more hit records and with more success than most artists achieve in a lifetime. \"Sonically, she\'s got ears like a bat\" says vocal recording engineer Rod Houison. \"She rolls out six part harmonies effortlessly.
From a technical point of view she\'s in a class of her own.\" Being technically superb is only one side of Miriam. She also has a tremendously emotional delivery that can often send tingles down your spine, and is well known for her highly developed and unique vocal skills of multilayering vocal harmonies. In countless high profile concerts she has provided backing vocals (including for Elton John, Annie Lennox, David Bowie and Seal).
Miriam\'s extensive studio work brought her to the attention of Karl Jenkins who had heard about her unique vocal style, and this led to the highly successful ADIEMUS project, whereby Jenkins\' compositions featuring Miriam\'s vocals were recorded with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and released as \"Songs Of Sanctuary\" by ADIEMUS. The album was a huge international success and, together with the follow-ups \"Cantata Mundi\" and \"Dances of Time\" has so far sold well in excess of two million copies worldwide. \"Only You,\" a hit Miriam performed with the group Praise, charted number two in the UK. After completing the third Adiemus album Miriam expanded her musical audience by releasing solo albums on Virgin, which have become recognised as vocal masterpieces.
