Holly Miranda signs with Dangerbird Records // Sophomore Album Coming May 19th

Dangerbird is proud to announce the signing of Holly Miranda and the release of her upcoming sophomore album on May 19th.

“Holly is one of those true, real artists who is infectious to be around,” says Dangerbird founder Peter Walker. “Her passion is so deep it comes through in every note she sings.”

“It’s been a long time coming and I’m so beyond thrilled to be releasing my new record with Dangerbird!” says Miranda. “I love Danger and I love Birds, so I think this is going to be a perfect fit.”

See Holly Miranda on tour with Andrea Gibson in March. Follow her on Twitter and on Facebook, and read below for more information on her upcoming album.

On a trip intended to jumpstart the creative process for new material, Holly Miranda reflects, “I had a dream that I was going to rent a house in Joshua Tree and go write by myself for a month. I’d never been there before, but I woke up the next day and booked the first house I found and left a few days later. It was about getting away from the chatter of Los Angeles and reconnecting with myself and nature. I had a bit of writer’s block after the last record, I wasn’t having fun anymore and I really needed to get back the core of why I started making music 17 years ago.” she says.

Whatever it was Miranda needed from her time in desert, she seems to have found it. On her self-titled sophomore release Miranda nods at her singer-songwriter roots but also pushes herself in new directions. She co-produced the album with Florent Barbier, and tracks like “Desert Call” and “Everlasting,” show off straightforward songwriting, soulful delivery and a lighters-in-the-air orchestration that places Miranda alongside the pantheon of songwriters who can make heartache sound beautiful. After half of her life spent on stage or in a recording studio—with her former rock band The Jealous Girlfriends and more recently as a solo artist— Miranda is still experimenting and diving for deeper truths.

“This is the most honest thing I’ve ever made; it’s very raw and is a contrast to what I’ve done in the past,” she says. After writing in Joshua Tree, she headed to Brooklyn, New York in the winter of 2012 to record most of the album, enlisting the help of bandmates Timmy Mislock, Maria Eisen and David Jack Daniels, while taking turns herself on piano, drums, guitar and bass. “There’s a Motown vibe to some of the songs” she notes of the recordings. “I wanted it to feel like the band was playing the songs live. There’s also a few that are more electronic and ethereal,” like the song “Come On.” She recorded that track in Los Angeles with David Andrew Sitek, producer of her 2010 release The Magicians Private Library.

Outside of recording, Miranda’s kept plenty busy. She recently toured the globe playing guitar for Karen O in support of her solo debut Crush Songs, she toured Spain for the annual Voces Femininas festival and is currently working on a graphic novel with Portland based artist Catherine Lazar Odell.

“I can’t remember a time I wasn’t singing. When I was little my older sisters used to make me lay on the floorboard of the car if I was going to sing, because my voice was so loud they said it felt like it was ‘inside of their heads.’ I’ll never stop making music. It’s the best therapy I’ve found.”

Listening to her new record, one certainly hopes she never stops.

“Drawing inspiration from Neil Young’s After the Goldrush, Harris mixes quiet acoustic numbers, full-band tunes with Star Rover, guitar duets with Julian Lage, and a smattering of pretty instrumentals into a successful whole. No Wrong No Right marks Harris’ 13th solo effort, and by the sound of things he hasn’t lost any artistic energy, and won’t be losing any soon.” – PopMatters
