About...Peggy

Make the best of everything

It's all in how you look at things

I've had my share of joy

and I've grieved the pain away

-- Make the Best --

 

With a voice that sends those intangible chills running through your body, Peggy Mira evokes that unspoken connection to the soul.  Singing songs in the tradition of artists such as Natalie Cole, Billie Holiday, Norah Jones, and Eva Cassidy with favorite classics over the decades, you may find yourself singing along, if only in your heart.

 

Peggy’s original one-woman show, "Quiet Courage', is an intimate journey of song and stories written around this artist’s life. Each of us has a unique perspective and it is this artist's hope to create an opening for each person to discover their own personal insights. There is a vulnerability in these songs that seems to touch people at their core.  “Your songs and your voice took me to another place.” 

 

Crafting songs that come home to the soul is characteristic of this artist. Her first album, “In This Place” is an inspirational collection of soothing song and reflection. “It made an impression on me when I heard that people play it in the workplace to de-stress. I began to write more openly about the ebb and flow in my own life sometimes giving things a humorous take and sometimes letting the edges stay in place.”  These songs reach in to the core of people letting them know they’re not alone.

 

 

Strands of jazz, pop standards and musical theater, instilled in her by her father’s love of music, texture her melodies and lyrics.  “When I was in fifth grade we moved to Indonesia for a few years and my father would play a variety of music over dinner spinning light-hearted tales around the artists. One of his favorite story lines was that the musicians ran away with gypsies.”  

 

 

Peggy is a passionate philanthropist and volunteer, performing regularly for people in assisted living facilities with her music students.  Her holiday music includes an album entitled “Christmas Songs” which benefits her sponsored children in Children International.  Other charities she has volunteered with include Resounding Joy where she co-wrote songs with veterans. She holds a Bachelor of Music in Voice and Theater from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
