MIRI O

In 2019 MIRI released her EP ‘Soundbites’, tracks from which garnered support from Gemma Cairney at BBC 6 Music, Clash Magazine and BBC Introducing. She also spoke to BBC Radio London and Fubar Radio about her music, mental health and LGBTQ+ issues. In May during Mental Health Awareness Week, London In Stereo featured a playlist curated by MIRI to highlight tracks which convey important messages about mental health and earlier last year she performed at 2 male prisons (HM Prison The Mount and HMP Spring Hill) to spread awareness for LGBTQ+ History Month. Later in 2019 MIRI performed four gigs in Kingston for CirKT in association with the Mayor of London (after being handpicked by Hyper Frank and Field Day Festival Founder Tom Baker), as well as curating, compering and performing at the Soundbank Centre for Raze Collective’s event Raze On The River as part of the Southbank Centre Summer Festival.

Outside of music MIRI works with mental health awareness charities and community projects. She is also a music mentor for young people at south London charity SGS and is on the well being team for Girls Rock London, music camps for adults and young people which help to empower girls (and applicants who self-identify as girls, women, trans* and/or gender non-conforming). She is the curator of Diversity Platform, a Q&A and panel discussions for young LGBTQ+ artists and allies offering support and guidance in the music industry.

Her previous music releases have gained spins from BBC 6 Music, Soho Radio, BBC London Introducing and Radio X. She has previously written and worked with artists including Estelle, Plan B, Anita Blay and Xylaroo. Live-wise MIRI has performed extensively across UK & Europe – highlights include; Trafalgar Square for Million Women Rise (a rally and protest to end violence against women), shows at The 100 Club for the Official Bob Marley Birthday Celebration, Safe Gigs For Women, Sofar Sounds, the main stage at Manchester Pride supporting Rita Ora, and Bush Hall supporting Laura Veirs.
