With her little girl voice, the highly inventive Mirah creates big music. Using tympani, cymbals, strings, bass, organs and even ukeleles (?!) Mirah carves out grandiose songs to accompany her introspective bedroom lyrics. Or she'll switch it up on you and strip it down to just an acoustic guitar and a mic, almost anticipating when we've had our full of her epic splendor. Mirah addresses the most typical of humanity's worry -- romance and heartbreak -- but still manages to make it interesting drama through her wit and sensual innocence. With each new recording, Mirah's versatility keeps her creative output fresh. We hope she'll be around for a long, long while.
