Miraa May

Miraa May is an artist who will make you think, laugh, cry and feel. The Algerian born, Tottenham based singer-songwriter takes inspiration from the north London streets where she grew up, from the friendships and the experiences of a life lived.

The self-described ‘Tottenham songbird’ first released her debut EP ‘The Beginning’ in 2014. The EP, alongside a handful of raw and soulful live performances, attracted the ears of Award winning, legendary producer Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Nas, The Fugees) who produced her second EP N15. Now Miraa releases her most unapologetic, frank and heartfelt collection yet. ‘Care Package’ documents a young woman living life to the full, discussing big themes like love, life, sadness, relationships, cooking, gaming or Anime (which inspired the Care Package artwork). These five songs, and if you take some time to check out Miraa’s Instagram, give an insight into the character behind this remarkable music. ‘Care Package’ is out now on Island Records
