Mira Goto is a California native who now splits her time between Santa Cruz, CA and Nashville, TN. The singer began her music career at a very young age playing violin, but grew up to play guitar. When she reached college, she began writing songs and has now gone on to chart on country radio stations and just released her first EP in October of last year.
On August 12th, Mira released her brand new song “The Best”. Mira told us she was “Drawn to the songs that told stories, songs that were more lyrically driven. I wanted to learn how to do that… how to have a song about love without ever saying the word ‘love’. It’s a really fun challenge to say something without saying it.”
Mira mentioned she is inspired by a variety of styles, and her inspirations have evolved over time.
“My inspirations vary greatly in style, and in timing; some were massively inspirational years ago, and some speak to me now. For example, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Colbie Caillat, Sheryl Crow – that whole singer songwriter movement in the early 2000’s is what inspired me to first pick up a guitar. Kacey Musgraves & Taylor Swift brought me into country, while Chris Stapleton, Lori McKenna, Ingrid Andress and Lee Brice keep me here.”
When asked what is next for her, Mira told us “Next for me is more music! Always more music. I would love to do more shows, but the future is unknown in that regard. I’ll pace myself for now, and perform when I can. In the meantime, I’m writing and hoping to have a deep catalogue of great music to share with the world once we’re [in] full sprint again!”
