“Iconic…A Trip-Hop Luminary” – Gilles Peterson BBC6 Worldwide.fm
‘A mere 40 seconds into this Brazilian/English artist’s debut solo album and you’ll be won over.… You could say that Smoke City’s one-time singer couldn’t go wrong with a raft of musicians from the likes of Ibibio Sound Machine and Da Lata. But it’s marshalling all these talents and getting them to do your thing rather than theirs, that’s to be admired” Songlines Magazine *.
Nina Miranda Is a singer songwriter, artist and producer and has spent most of her life living between Brazil and London.She was a founding member of the band Smoke City, whose ‘Underwater Love’ went on to become an international hit and opened the door to several new music forms. She has since recorded 8 albums with different bands and projects including Zeep, Shrift and Daxuva. She has collaborated with artists including Nitin Sawhney, Jah Wobble, Baaba Maal and Seu Jorge
So now I’m continuing my flow with International collaborators old and new some of whom have been on my ‘bucket list’ for a while; watch this space : )
So, fellow music-lovers, ’Why Pledge?’ I hear you ask.
Because you’ll pay the same as getting a record when it’s finished, but you get it first. In addition, your pre-ordering allows me to work with spectacular musicians, studios and engineers to make this record as EPIC as it must be. You’ll get exclusive goodies, behind the scenes footage and be part of the conversation.
‘Why Covers?’ I also hear you ask.
Because it is a challenge to me as a vocalist and an homage to my heroes.
I usually write and record my own compositions but for this album I want to focus entirely on covering 10 songs that mean the most to me right now; songs so deep that they submerge you in their atmosphere.
Covers can allow the listeners and creators a great mixture of comfort and adventure and as the world gets crazier I believe it is more important than ever to keep opening windows of connection. I want my interpretations of inspirational songs to act like a switch which lets the lights come on – ping ping ping!
Some of the artists I will be covering include Joan Armatrading, Led Zeppelin and Joni Mitchell. I’m on the diving board ready to jump with a mixture of reverence, fear and delight! Let’s go! Nina x
