Brooklyn based songwriter Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn has been creating incorruptible independent pop music since the late 1990’s. She has released over a dozen solo and collaborative recordings on K Records, Kill Rock Stars and various domestic and foreign independent labels.
She has performed with The Oregon Symphony, Contemporaneous Orchestra and The Portland Cello Project and has toured solo and with countless iterations of her own band in concert halls, music clubs and punk basements all across North America, Japan and Europe.
Mirah has always sought the creative company of unique collaborators, from multi-media artists and orchestral composers to dj’s, Baltic music enthusiasts, and entomologists. A partial list of some of her collaborators includes Phil Elverum (The Microphones/Mount Eerie), Susie Ibarra, Jherek Bischoff, Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), Thao Nguyen, Tara Jane O’Neil, Lori Goldston, Britta Johnson and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.
Mirah lived in the Pacific Northwest for 16 very formative years throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s and she LOVES coming back to visit.
