Miriam Daly is a composer/music director/accompanist/arranger/teaching artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She was a long time music director of the Off-Broadway smash, Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding (which she also toured with nationally and in Japan), and has also worked in many other NYC venues.
Her music has often been described as quirky or eclectic, she likes to write songs NOT about love and heartbreak, but about ladders, or toilet paper or broken mirrors.. or cans of soup. These examples are found in her Project 365 where she took a photo every day for a year and wrote a song about it.
She also writes for theater, and some theater composition and arrangement credits include:
