Mitchell Mirande 'Mitchell Mirande' EP Out 11/3; Listen to First Single
Mitchell Mirande is very happy to announce that "Hold On", the first single from his forthcoming self-titled EP (out 11.03) can now be heard via https://open.spotify.com/album/6eXzFcH2NG63WINPhIWGFG Mirande crafts deceptively straightforward songs that speak from the heart of the human condition. His music transitions gracefully from plaintive to soaring; his voice a gleaming pure thing, edges torn with emotion. Produced by buzzing Los Angeles duo X-Lovers, Mitchell Mirande is an astonishingly mature, cohesive record that marks his initial ascent into the ranks of timeless balladeers.
A native of Klamath Falls, OR, Mirande grew up immersed in music. Mirande relocated to Seattle, WA for college, where he wrote and self-released a short EP called My Way in the spring of 2015. Passed around to his fellow students at the University of Washington, the record soon began to spread organically and Mirande found himself an in-demand performer within the school's Greek scene. As he finished his biology degree the house shows gave way to club dates, and Mirande made the difficult decision to put med school on hold to pursue music.
When it came time for Mirande to record new music he was determined to move beyond the sparse esthetic of his first records. "My Way was recorded quickly and with minimal production" explains Mirande, "I'm proud of the record, but this time around I wanted to really try and capture the songs as I hear them in my head." Mitchell Mirande wraps his earnest songwriting in a wash of gauzy, ethereal sonics.
