Biography

Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn was born September 17, 1974, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mirah is the youngest of three children and lived in Bala Cynwyd, a suburb of Philadelphia for most of her childhood. She then moved to Olympia, Washington and attended The Evergreen State College. She is modest and deliberate, prefers privacy to invasion and reconciliation to war. Mirah is Jewish and her middle name means “good day” or “holy day” in Hebrew.

She has released a number of albums under the K Records label. She has collaborated with her close friend Phil Elvrum of The Microphones and has also worked extensively with The Black Cat Orchestra.

Mirah visited South America, specifically Argentina, and was so struck by the music and culture that several songs on C’mon Miracle reflect this experience.

Traditionally a solo performer, Mirah struck out in late 2004 on a Southwestern US tour for the first time enlisting a band. The band comprised of Nora Danielson (who is featured on recordings by the Mountain Goats, The Intima, Tara Jane O’Neil, Liarbird, & Young People), Dan Sasaki (Enemymine, Sedan, The Old Haunts), Themba Lewis (Liarbird, The Intima, Tara Jane O’Neil, Jackie-O Motherfucker), and Alex Yusimov (Duck Duck Gray Duck and many more). Nora, Alex, and Themba have also been featured on Mirah’s recorded releases. Mirah also previously was a member of The Drivers, an all-girl band from Olympia.
