Holly Miranda – Going on Tour

     Holly Miranda will begin a tour in less than a month. Among the stops is the Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco. The complete tour is included at the bottom of this post.
   Holly Miranda is a singer/songwriter from Detroit, Michigan. According to her Facebook page, she tours with Tim Mislock and Maria Eisen. But she is a multi-instrumentalist. In studio, she plays piano, drums, guitar and bass.
    The song “Mark My Words” is particularly attractive. The song includes a baritone saxophone and vocal layering, two features that tend to grab attention. And the lyrics are interesting. Eliminating the sentences that include the term “ooo” or “trippin’,” the lyrics are:
Sneaking words into your pockets
Bleeding lyrics from my veins oh
I would lie behind your ears if I
thought you wouldn't forget I was there

And you were just what I needed oh
Life after the eye of a storm
And I know that I can come on so strong
If you would just give me a minute to find my ground

And I don't need anything from you
No I don't need anything
And if you want me to go I will go
But if you want me to stay I would love to stay

     “Mark My Words” by Holly Miranda (This is available as a free download at Seattle's KEXPhttp://blog.kexp.org/2015/06/25/song-of-the-gay-holly-miranda-mark-my-words/.)
