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 23-year-old artist has become celebrated for her frankness and truthful outpourings – whether that be on Beats with Julie Adenuga, the 1xtra Jamaica Jam, performing at Glastonbury or her Instagram feed. Her latest release The Dark EP speaks about Miraa’s experiences with bad behaviour, deteriorating relationships, smoking, and her mental health, while current single Angles Ft JME is playlisted at BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1xtra, and shows the humour Miraa can bring to serious issues.
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. Signing with Island Records followed, and the release of her most unapologetic, frank and heartfelt collection Care Package, which documented 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).
