Toronto based artist, Exmiranda has recently released a song called “Pink Panther”, in which she remixed one of Kaytranada’s instrumentals. We were stoked to ask her some questions for our newest Five Questions With segment, so check out the interview, and the track below!
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
I go by Exmiranda (my middle name) and I am a Toronto-Based Artist. I don’t like to put my creativity in a box but I would describe myself as a Rapper with a strong explorative side.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I would describe my music as the expression of the different facets of who I am as a person. The songs I write and the melodies I compose represent my character traits, memorable moments and experiences, my world view and perspectives, my dreams, emotions and many other attributes that make me who I am. My music is highly influenced by a variety of genres, such as R & B to House, Grime, Hip Hop, Afro beats, funk etc. When I write songs I start with an instrumental as the base or foundation for whatever I create. I listen to the different components of the beat and allow the sounds I hear dictate what I create and then the melody and words follow.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I am planning upcoming tour dates in the fall of 2017, However dates and venues are TBD. I would describe my live performance style as controlled Energy or contained excitement. I give my all when I perform but I stay true to myself and maintain my originality.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
Kaytranada, Drake and Alessia Cara are my favourite Canadian artists at the moment.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
