Holly Miranda grew up between Detroit and Nashville, two music towns that would influence her own journey in a very profound way. She began playing piano at the age of 6, taught her self guitar at 14 and moved to New York at 16 to start her professional career. For nearly 20 years Holly has been performing, writing and producing with some of the best in the business. She has performed with the likes of Karen O, Lou Reed, The XX and Lesley Gore. She released two records with her band The Jealous Girlfriends and has co-written and produced a mass of other projects.
Mutual Horse is Holly's third solo album on Dangerbird Records, recorded with assistance from Josh Werner (Dr. John, Lee Scratch Perry), Jared Samuel (Yoko Ono), Jim Kirby Fairchild (Grandaddy, Modest Mouse), Kyp Malone (Tv On The Radio), Maria Eisen (Underground System), Matthew Morgan (Built to Spill, Modest Mouse) and many others. The eclectic mix of players make for some compelling grooves. This record finds Holly bridging the gap between 2010's experimental synth laden release The Magicians Private Library and 2015's stripped back soulful self-titled record.
Miranda takes an honest and intimate approach throughout its 14-tracks, while simultaneously maintaining her sense of humor and sonic explorations.
