Holly Miranda first began playing in New York at age 16, when she dropped out of high school in Michigan, told her mom she was going to visit her sister in New York for a few weeks, and never turned back. Whether solo or with her band, she’s become an artist consistently able to mesmerize with her range as well as her songs. Holly’s XL Recordings debut, The Magician’s Private Library, was produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek and is one of the most enthralling records of 2010.

Holly Miranda recently played a very successful sold-out show at the Bowery Ballroom and is part of the Celebrate Brooklyn concert series at the Prospect Park Bandshell in August.“Holly Miranda’s falsetto makes the walls collapse.” —Vanity Fair“…a less fearful Cat Power, a more substantive Feist, a Norah Jones with actual feeling.” —New York Times“a rare talent.” “one of the stars of 2010″ - Time Out NYYou can hear “Waves” here.Watch her play an acoustic version of it here.
