Listen to River’s latest single “Mountains” below, then read on about her inspirations, her creative process, and her big plans for the future.

Back in spring, when the unique circumstances of 2020 began to unfold, Toronto-bases singer/songwriter Rose Brokenshire released a song that felt like a perfect reflection of our changed lives. Back then, she announced three more songs and today you can listen to all of them on her new EP “In A Spell,” which showcases Rose’s songwriting from a new side.

Mïrändä

Q&A with Mïrändä

It is more than three years ago that we heard about Mïrändä for the first time and could not stop listening to her debut EP “Empire”. We were blown away, to say the least by the New York-based singer, songwriter, and producer and were excited to see her live at (almost) three of our showcases.

With three new songs and two videos released, we thought of this being a great opportunity to ask Miranda Johnson, who makes music as Mïrändä a few questions. Be sure to check out her latest video – entirely filmed by the artist herself – before you read on!
