C'Mon Miracle (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: May 04, 2004; Lead Performance: Mirah; Genres: Folk, Indie Rock

Mirah might be borrowing folk's acoustic framework, but she sidesteps the genre's earnest strumming and Boy Scout lyrics, spinning evocative yarns in a voice both unaffected and engagingly warm (reminiscent of a more plain-spoken Aimee Mann). Through it all, she creates an atmosphere of such intimate ease, you feel as if she's singing for you alone.
