Mariam Karolina Wallentin Riahi was raised in the suburbs of a small town; she never felt she belonged there but never really needed to either. She has a Swedish mom born far up north, and a dad from Iran, who now lives in Brazil, she worked calling numbers in a smoky Bingo hall, she sometimes doubted everything, she had nodules on the vocal cords and thought that she would never be able to sing again, she travelled the Trans-Siberian Railway alone, lived in Beijing, toured Sweden when she was nine dressed as a mouse, she cleaned staircases in Gothenburg, she grew up with Persian cats, was dubbing cartoons as a kid and got married young. She lived nomadic life and toured around the world with a vocals / drums duo for four years in a row, she thinks thats what’s interesting arises in the spaces between, that the energy is everything, she has at times not known where to go to, but yet always landed somewhere, but what’s most: music, to try to reach right in there. She wanted to begin playing electric guitar, so got herself a cream white Gibson in New York and started this project. She started her own label Repeat Until Death, ‘cause this is what she’ll do until she dies. Every new creative project feels as if starting all over, yet at the same time this is where she is always trying to reach, to reach the core of everything.
