Win 2 Tickets to See Holly Miranda at Littlefield!

About one month ago...and hey, almost to the day too...we sat down and talked with Holly Miranda and got to learn a little more about the Brooklyn transplant via Detroit. Then she played a killer set at Bowery Ballroom...and while this is all fine and well, there's really only one way to best experience a Miranda show, and that's by hitting her upcoming gig at Littlefield on July 7.

Getting to Know Holly Miranda's Sleepless World

Being the known insomniac that I am, it's a pleasure to sit down and chat with an individual who experiences the same restlessness. Hell, if all that's required to construct a stunning solo album is to stay awake more than not, than Holly Miranda has the formula down pat. With the release of The Magician's Private Library earlier this year, the Brooklyn-via-Detroit singer/songwriter tackles the shortness of slumber, whether it's a conscious effort or not.

Miranda's just wrapped her East Coast tour, which came to a conclusion last night at Bowery Ballroom. Performing a large portion of the recent disc, she also covered Yoko Ono and Etta James, two dynamically different singers/songs done with grace and poise. Up next, Holly heads to Australia for a mini-tour but we wanted to have a proper talk with her prior.

 

Below, you'll find part one of the interview. 

 

If you like what you hear, then head to East Village Radio to give an ear to the second half of the Q&A.
