Mirah
Mirah
Brooklyn-based Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn (b. 1974, Philadelphia) creates incorruptible independent pop music. Defined by her graceful songwriting and adventuresome recordings, Pitchfork has praised her “incredible voice—a versatile coo that can flit from low, sultry tones to high, airy falsetto in one breath.”

She has released over a dozen solo and collaborative recordings on K Records, Kill Rock Stars and various US domestic and foreign independent labels.

Collaborators include well-known producers Phil Elverum (The Microphones/Mount Eerie), Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), Tucker Martine, Guy Sigsworth and Calvin Johnson, songwriters and composers such as Thao Nguyen, Lori Goldston, Susie Ibarra, Jherek Bischoff, Tara Jane O’Neil and Khaela Maricich (The Blow) and visual and media artists such as Anna Oxygen of Cloud Eye Control, Britta Johnson and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.

Her latest release, Changing Light, was self-released on her own imprint, Absolute Magnitude Recordings.
Zeitlyn has toured the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand many times since 1998.

In his 30-­odd years, he has collaborated with the likes of Kronos Quartet, Bang on a Can, David Byrne and Neil Gaiman and has performed in venues and festivals around the globe including Carnegie Hall, BAM, Adelaide Festival and Tasmania’s MONA FOMA. His work as a composer has garnered commissions from Kronos Quartet, Lincoln Center and St. Ann’s Warehouse and performances by Seattle Symphony, Adelaide Art Orchestra, Wordless Music and yMusic. The Guardian’s 4­star review of his 2012 release Composed hailed his work a “collection of lavishly orchestrated pop songs.” 2014 saw his musical scoring debut with Johnny Breitwieser at Vienna’s Schauspielhaus. And in 2015, Bischoff ventured into television, contributing work to Starz’ Blunt Talk and Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. This year, Bischoff will release his highly-anticipated, Kickstarter­funded album Cistern, a collection of ambient works recorded with a live orchestra.
