I strongly recommend you listen to the track "Cold Cold Water" by Mirah. She's a young Philadelphia native with a girlish colour to her voice, but this song alternately marches and glows, from the martial beat of the snare to the shimmer of a string section, galloping and then sauntering, at times draped in the grey fog of a melancholy organ.
"Mirah will be playing a lunchtime acoustic set at the Oak Street building in Portland Oregon on September 16th. This is the day before her birthday and the eve of a hiatus of Mirah live shows."
