Miranda grew up in Malmö, the daughter of a cellist and a music producer. After spending her early childhood in rehearsal rooms, theaters, studios, at soundchecks and in backstage rooms, she decided music wasn’t for her.
But at the ripe old age of 14 she changed her mind. Picking up a guitar and writing loads of songs brought her to play in clubs around her home town where she became known as the “PJ Harvey of Malmo”, all the while lying about her age so that she would be let in. Then in 2008 she won “Best Unsigned Artist of the Year” at the Swedish independent music awards.
Moving to Berlin at the age of 18, she started playing on the streets and subways and some small clubs, and it wasn’t long before she came to the attention of the Berlin duo Lonski & Classen. They signed her to their label Osthafen and are now working on new songs with her for her upcoming album.
Meanwhile Miranda has an EP, Danger, out as a digital release. Check it out here and buy it here.
