MIRAH & GINGER "While We Have The Sun"

I love this song, right now at least, I just listened to it for the first time and the underwater guitar, the trilling keyboard riding high above the waterbound guitar tone... and all of it split by Mirah's clear voice - set softly against the speaker. Move closer, you can, I swear, very nearly feel the moisture of her breath.

This song is not solo Mirah, she is working here with Ginger Brooks Takahashi - as described below...

"Both avid adventurists and music-makers, Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn and Ginger Brooks Takahashi, a scant three months into their friendship, proposed this idyllic project to each other; to surround themselves with instruments and recording equipment for one month in a town where neither lived. No distractions. Securing the use of a friend’s grandmother's empty home in the cradle of the Blue Ridge Mountains, they awaited September."
