She started writing music from a very young age, with her first song at four years old.[2] When she was twelve, Mirah appeared on Double Dare, a television game show.[3] "I actually used the money that I won on Double Dare to pay for the time I spent on the Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament." She began singing and performing at 18 when she moved to Olympia, Washington and attended Evergreen State College.

Music career

Mirah released her first album, Storageland on Yoyo Recordings in 1997, and joined K records in 1999[4]. Mirah was previously a member of The Drivers, an all-female Olympia band.

In July 2008, her song "The Garden" was featured in the TV show "So You Think You Can Dance". Her latest album, (a)spera, was released on March 10, 2009.
