Miranda Writes: High Vibrations

Let’s hop right into this latest single / video, “Taylor Swift” — Tell me about this particular track; how did it come to fruition?

Ah, the second I heard this beat I just heard “get what I want if I want it then I get it” for the chorus and then at that point I’m like, “well, I could flip this a thousand ways.” I really wanted to create something sassy, classy and just a feel good vibe. It’s definitely for the ladies, and I’m all about women supporting women. I decided to name it after “Taylor Swift” because of her record breaking year. I’ve always admired her as an artist, business-woman and philanthropist. She’s definitely created a blueprint for other women to navigate and look up to.

As a songwriter, when you sit down to pen your lyrics where do you draw your inspiration from?

Life really. I just write about how I feel at that particular moment. Our emotions change suddenly and frequently, and I think that’s an opportunity for creativity. There’s something to be taken away from every moment in our lives, and I try to capture how I feel while I’m feeling that way.

Reflecting, tell me your whole inception into music — When did you first become interested in it? And, how did it all begin for Miranda Writes?

I’ve always loved music, and have always been a fan of Hip Hop. I’ve been listening to it forever. I started off writing poetry, and then one day I decided to flip something I wrote over a beat…and the rest was history. At that point I started recording covers and putting them out, and then began to start writing songs. I knew then this is what I wanted to do with my life. Needless to say, it’s been the best decision I ever made.

Now where exactly do you hail from? And growing up there, who all did / do you consider to be your strongest musical influences?

New York! We the best! Ha. I also lived in different parts of Jersey quite a bit. As far as musical influences go, this is always a tough question because there’s just so many. BUT…Missy Elliott, MC Lyte, Rihanna, Eve, Jay-Z, Eminem, J. Cole, Madonna, Gwen Stefani, Nicki Minaj, ATCQ, Wu-Tang, Drake, Lil Baby (and) The Cure, to name a few.

In having said that, how do you classify your overall sound and / or style?

I would say feel good edgy music that’ll make you dance, smile and think, all at the same time. Music is a universal language, and that’s why the vibration is so strong. So for me, I aim to keep the vibrations high!

Switching gears here…

What do you feel has and will continue to be the key to your longevity?

I think just continuing to navigate within my own lane. I’m definitely more of a rebel heart, and I’ve always been the type to try new things as I don’t mind hopping out of my comfort zone. I’m constantly pushing myself to get better because growth and evolution is what it’s all about.

What do you want people to get from your music?

I just want people to feel good. If I do that, then I feel like I’m doing my job. The impact lies within the connection of the community. My fans feel like family, and that’s what I love about the community I’m cultivating.

On a more serious note, are you happy with the current state of music?

I think the current state of music is interesting. I think music is constantly changing and evolving, and we just have to celebrate that. I always say there is so much music available to listen to, there’s absolutely no reason why people can’t find something they like. I also think this is the first time in history we’ve had so many female rappers in the game at the same time, killing it, which is really inspiring and long overdue. For me, it’s more so about celebrating the innovators within music that are creating and releasing music that makes the next wave.

Do you have any other outside / additional aspirations, maybe even completely away from music?

For sure! I definitely would like to get into acting and have my own talk show at some point. I’d also like to be a part of a women’s venture capitalist firm, and start my own nonprofit as well.

To date, what has been your greatest career moment(s), at least thus far anyway?

That’s a hard one. I feel like every first moment for something is a big deal. Like for example, my first headlining show was a big deal, the first time I was in Forbes was a big deal, my first time walking in fashion week was a big deal. That’s what’s so beautiful about the journey, is that you just continue to pray for the good things you hope are next. I’m thankful for every “First” I’ve experienced.

What’s an average day like for you?

I’m a night owl, but I make it a point to get up early. A cup of coffee and morning workout to get some endorphins going to start off the day is essential. Right now I’m on tour with the Harlem Globetrotters as their tour emcee, so my days have been extra busy these days. I take care of all of my business matters and meetings prior to heading to the venue. Our gig is about 7 hours every day. Once we get back to the Telly, I usually unwind and create. I brought a mini studio setup with me, and it’s the perfect day cap.

Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans…

My fans feel like family. I love going live and talking with everyone. I feel like I’m building a community of love and peeps who just want good vibes. Let’s be real, life is far from perfect days everyday…but that’s actually why building with likeminded people who inspire you and encourage you is important.

What is your favorite part about this line of work? Your least favorite? And, why?

Favorite part, creating ‘ because I’m an artist 🙂 Least favorite, the bullshitters…this biz can suck.

What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

Make it a point to learn the music business. Invest in your craft everyday in different ways. Realize that some people get lucky, but for most of us this has been years of hard work. The minute you stop having fun, you’ll feel like it’s no longer worth it. Find joy in the journey.

Lastly, what’s next for Miranda Writes?

I’m always working on something, so, honestly, who knows. All I know is that “Taylor Swift” is out now, and I’d love for you to check it out. The song is available on all platforms, and the official music video is on YouTube.

Is there anything I left out, or just plain forgot to mention? And, any “closing” thought(s) for our readers?

If you stayed until the end, thank you. Thanks for supporting ya girl. This year is gonna be real vibey! Let’s go!
