Behind story: This was my first mixtape made by DJ MK-1. As a great friend and fellow bandmate he was tired that no one knew my musical creations. So he invested and bulk bought physical CD’s 6 years ago and got a graphic designer to make the cover and pressed them and hand delivered a full box to me and said with eagerness  ‘here take these, I have made a mixtape of my favourite past songs of yours and made 100 physical copies, now can you please make the world know who you are!’ I stood there in awe and felt so blissed to have a supportive friend push me with belief. Thanks fam! 

So this is the reflections I had stored in my home studio of creativity. May you enjoy it and get to know my first vibe before my first EP LIFE comes out to be launched in October 16th 2016. 

The Wait Is…(Nearly) Over!!!

A fun morning on Like A Version with JUSTAGENT

Blog has gone live on the triple j pageLink here: Triple J 


Well, what a day ! Vocal warm ups to then catch train to Triple J ABC STUDIOS. To meet up with the crew and then have fun sharing the platform featuring with JUSTAGENT on his first Like a Version performance.


I first heard about the FUN performance via L-FRESH The LION. Week before ‘L’ shared I wrote a verse for a feature.


He let me hear it and I was like ‘ DOPE’ this is a positive reminder of his fire or introducing new people to his lyrical vibes especially as he is on tour at present with his band team and special guests starting this weekend in Perth and Freo.

Then a week later I received a call inviting me to be apart of it, as backing vocalist for talented hard working female Sydney vocalist THANDI aka Thandiwe Pheonix and L-FRESH The LION. I was like ‘uhhhh yeyer’ ( no brainer) also to meet and be apart of Justagents project. Thank you Summanagement.


I really rate Thandi and her band! Love their movements! Check her out and hope you may continue to support her. 

Thandi Instagram 

Very honoured to be thought of and counted as a vocalist. It’s all new to me and learning to harmonise to two fellow music peers and work with an up and rising Electronic Artist is what I do music for. 


Fun performances to come every Friday and Saturday night through out Aug-Sept. Join our exciting ventures to go forth to airport to then travel to tour for BECOME Tour.

Polite reminder that I’m SOON releasing my solo E.P called LIFE. Will let you know the date! SOON COME!! -Mirrah 

The fun is about to begin on L-FRESH The LION’s BECOME Album Tour with guests.

Wow; it’s been 4 years now together I have had the pleasure with hard work ethics rehearsing & performing Nationally in Australia with musical band peer​s L-FRESH The LION, Clinton, Duane,  Chris & Mk-1.


The team that L-FRESH The LION personally chooses to perform or work with has such a family feel. Each talent has a colourful personality with wit and an individual passion that resonates music to great heights. Introducing Michael McGlynn of Vienna Peoples Studio; a musical force that exits music and talent through his pores for many years, has been producing for ‘L’ now for two albums such as “One” & “Become” not only is he the added spice to the musical path but a great peer who has great wisdom to share to create a great musical project. He also has performed live for several performances and adds an amazing energy and lifts the musical vibe live to sound just as great or better than what he’s produced and engineered on both Albums.


Performance on ABC Radio National Feat. MK-1, Michael McGlynn & Mirrah 
We have had the pleasure in our past BV’s    (Backing Vocalists) to work alongside talents such a vocal talents Ofisa Toleafoa (Tee) who then left in 2014 to trial and achieved great admiration for his vocals on The X Factor Australia.


To then working with BV (Backing Vocalist) not only an amazing, vocalist who also played keys in our band Kimberly Aviso, but also shared a wonderful warm and silly persona who complimented our band family’s foundation of what we enbody together as a group. Kimberly Aviso has recently just left the group to endeavour her own amazing business ventures.(we look forward when ever she wishes to come back)


We also have had the pleasure and honour to have perform with us on Triple J’s Like a Version with guest Australian pioneer talent such as DJ A.S.K; and tour with us for awesome festival events such as Queenscliff & The Plot talented respected Bass player Dale Harrison of The Herd; Elefant Traks. 

DJ A.S.K

Another great talent and persona who has graced us with their talents is DJ Diola a talented Turntabilist who has blossomed in the Australian scene. Not only does Diola have talent but so much passion to promote/ advocate for the hard working Australian local music scene for creative Artists. 


Luckily during our first GOLD COAST performance DJ DIOLA is joining us by djaying L-FRESH The LION set with MIRRAH at Miami Marketta on Sunday 14th August.

Then the full BECOME TOUR starts with talented wordplay guests as opening acts Omar Musa; an award-winning author, poet and rapper from Queanbeyan, New South Wales, Australia & Spoken word Poet who recently just opened people’s ears and awareness to Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa on Australia’s Got Talent. 

Get Ready to have Fun and come join the party!

LIFE EP- First EP to release

GETTING TO KNOW MIRRAH 

Photos by Chris Woe


Hello, some may know me from the start from Kindergarten where I used to be named ‘Shorti’ and breakdance on Venice Beach for money with older Break dancers and Popper mentors.

I then moved to Sydney; Australia for primary school, where I joined a breakdance cipher, crazy enough on the first day of school with a group of Indigenous, Indian and an Islander all the way in the Eastern Suburbs of Vaucluse?!

Yes, Vaucluse Primary matter of fact. (Giggle) I brought my checkered rolled up linoleum tied to my backpack and this young Australian Indian walks up to me and asks “You break?!” I stood at aged 10 with ‘tude ‘ from L.A to Sydney like “yeah all day” I laugh out loud now, of my past lil’ age 10 hardness!

I then continued to live in Sydney to graduate high school due to parents feeling I needed a stable, safe and fun lifestyle, and that L.A wasn’t the best place at the time as a teenager. 

Little did they know; being a teenager and learning our wits from all and any experience we go through is a world wide mishap, for some. I ended up being a rave, house party attendee that danced at every Hordern Pavilion, Oxford Street to Victoria Road dance party goer. Great times during the late 80’s and 90’s….. Yeah check those times out.. So now you’re reading this like (HOLD THE FRONT DOOR) she can’t be??? Anyway I continue.. 

I remember seeing SOUL 2 SOUL live and I knew right there amongst the rave lights and smoke machine and sweaty fellow dancers that I knew what I wanted to aim for.. An Afro jazz dancer and I was going to dance for Soul 2 Soul. 

At 19, I travelled and moved to London, was it for my dreams?! Well it was first driven by a boyfriend, oh no you say, she didn’t go overseas for a dude… Yeah I did. But it was the greatest thing I did. I graduated high school and saved for a year to move to England to meet my boyfriend and be a dancer.

It actually worked out even though I had to go through major relationship mishap and being overseas broke, and once living homeless in an abandoned house full of poets, artists and dancers.Yet it brought me so much will and hustle. Hustle I mean resilience, humility and tenacity to be the best I can do I can achieve my dance goal. I went to audition for Soul 2 Soul in mind and that same year they broke up due to their own issues and challenges. Which in turn made me realise I wasn’t the only one who was going through change and let down. 


Yet all changed for me as I danced in London clubs and met many dance crews and artists and they needed either a dancer for their gigs to then ended up dancing for Mark Morrison on his Album tour “Crazy” which also include his popular song “Return of the Mack” I then was on U.K local and 3T (Michael Jackson’s nephews group music videos and became a ‘Top of the Pops’ back up dancer. Which opened up some more ideas of what I aim for in the industry. Once I saw the set studio’s which was next door to U.K tv soap ‘East Enders’ set, it got me thinking and excited about what more can I do in this industry now at 21 years of age. 


During these times, I met music producers who kept seeing me as a singing vocalist only. Although that was difficult at the time because I couldn’t sing, a lick then. 

I wrote poetry though since age 8 that I can remember, and I would always keep a note pad with me. It actually was my best friend, I could write how I was feeling about anything with no judgements. 

I met a wonderful local London emcee in a shop where I was working as retail who asked me on a date, to then having him and his friends who happened to hear my voice which was left on his old home answering machine. You know the ones with the little cassette tape, (hahaha) His friends and him called me up with excitement like “yo come to the studio babes and lay down some raps” now me being a bright eyed 21 year old with dreams of being a dance choreographer for the stars only, I was like “what?!!! Rap?! Bahahahahahaa you have got to be joking are you crazaaay?!”

This team of men believed in me, they were so kind and so helpful, my first experience as a female in the booth was far from the audition couch, ya get me?! They taught me how to change my poems into bars. That was probably the best lesson and wake up feeling to a whole new perception of vocal ability to me. I mean I have been a listener of Funk and HipHop as a dancer since 4 to then seeing and feeling what you can do with lyrics over a beat! Man, I got addicted fast!    

The day when poetic rhyme changed to bars. That’s when ‘SHORTI -RV’ was born. ( name interpretation-‘describes my height and I’m all round vocally’ haha due to having a vocal flare as I used to rap over ‘Jungle’ and HipHop beats.

I had a ball and from then I was a loose cannon jumping into ciphers and onto stages learning the wrath of what an emcee endures to earn humble stripes at 21. I then moved back to Sydney as visa was up, and continued my aspirations to now become a Rhymer. 

Mirrah’s introduction as Flavor Flav’s Hypeman 

Touring with Rhyming Peers L-FRESH The LION & TALIB KWELI

mirrah feat. in RUTHEGIRL 2005 Reality TV series

I have been blissed to meet many pioneer Emcees & vocal Artists who have supported my positive tenacity with rhyming and have mentored me to be the best of self and continue to be my own style, and to learn it well. In 2005 I had a wonderful experience on a Reality TV series with T-Boz & Chilli of surviving talented group TLC. I proudly ended the tv show as runner up and will always treasure the meeting and fun with TLC. 

Here is the link to view:

Fast forward; I have had such a wonderful time learning great musical experiences with local and overseas liked minded creative beings. 

I also have featured in many music videos in the past. 

Link: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLPYtod_2xxikfsZREr6aFFobnpxqkEWAd

I have learnt alot of who ‘not’ to become  in this industry. Having more knowledge of what and how it is important to keep positive with a like minded foundation around you to have you stay grounded with personal achievements and to to stay resilient with passion towards my art process with what I write, share and post. 

Creativity is a Blissing. 


To have a dream is a precious thought, to have a goal aims for hard practice to sustain the movement as a solo artist and even more as a team player to become patient and have resilience together to score or tick through each goal. 


Success to me is every chess game you have lost yet you keep trying to win and once you overstand the past mistakes, learn from them and move on, that to me shows one successful character. That saying Rome wasn’t built in a day.. But when it was built, its ruins are the foundations that still lay for all to still see for many years. 


My new E.P is just like that, it has taken me years to come up with this amazing, heartfelt honest reflection of who is me, MIRRAH. 

I also have gotten to work with my partner who produced and orchestrated the project, which truly has and continues to be a fun, loving journey together. It’s been also great being apart of L-FRESH THE LION’s band which I am continuing to be apart of as band member with 6 others. 


I have been blissed to have so many of my talented peers support me with my first EP called LIFE from production, studio sessions, Turntabilism, film, visual arts, graphics  and rehearsals. 


And I look forward in each of you getting to know me, through my LIFE,LOVE & MUSICAL journeys. 
Much peace and Thank you for each of your overwhelming positive belief.

 – Respect from mirrah


PERFORMANCE REVIEWS

“Words by Hannah Lally

“With twelve shows of his national tour still to go, Sydney rapper L-Fresh and his team featuring DJ MK-1 and MC Mirrah powered through their set with iconic, infectious energy.
L-FRESH’s passion was perfectly backed by his crew, as Mirrah’s hype lit up the stage with huge energy, bounding, dancing and electrifying the whole crowd. Clearly radiating his band’s and crowd’s excitement, L-FRESH’s glowing positivity and deeply personal social commentary made this show a privilege to experience.”

DJ MK-1 prepped the now larger, louder crowd while Mirrah, neo-soul vocalist and all round sunshine-bear enlarged the collective smile of the audience in preparation for the arrival of L-Fresh the Lion.


As stated by L-Fresh, his ‘job’ as support artist was to lift the energy of the room and he did just that. Arms flailed, feet bounced – helped along by the infectious jubilance of Mirrah. After tributes to his home-state Punjab and the women in his life, the humble hip-hopper finished with Get Mineand 1 in 100,000, leaving ear-to-ear smiles and big shoes to fill.

Urthy brought back on stage all support acts for the final songs, including L-Fresh for the roof-raising The Signal, where all six performers plus DJ managed to bounce on stage in perfect time, and Okenyo and Mirrah alone for Second Heartbeat.

Mirrah really is everywhere. With Indonesian and African American heritage, and living between Los Angeles and Sydney, its easy to see the artistic reach that Mirrah has within her. 

Channeling Hip-Hop & Neo-Soul legends like Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu and merging it with the fierce tenacity of Nicki Minaj and Missy Elliott, she is a perfect blend between hype hip-hop and conscious rap.

Currently she is collaborating with our very own L-Fresh The Lion, as well as appearing on his track ‘Takeover’. 

About to drop a new EP in the coming months, Mirrah is well on her way to becoming a staple of the Australian rap scene.

She was also present during Urthboy’s The Past Beats Inside Me Like A Second Heartbeat tour and wowed fans with her skills and energy.

Mirrah encapsulates the very essence of what it means to be multi-faceted and multi-talented. She calls Australia her adoptive home, and is proud of her multi-cultural background and beginnings. Yet, this humble but fiercely passionate rapper, performer, writer, radio personality, mentor and humanitarian holds her ground on an international stage that has seen her perform alongside some of hip-hop’s most iconic names.

Mirrah is a woman whose mission in life is to create music and a dialogue that stretches beyond society’s definition, to inspire urban youth all over the world to seek their own path through music and to be an original in all she does. Last year she dropped the powerful single Wassup, and is gearing up to drop an EP this year under Green Room Sydney Studios. 


Touring as hype woman and cherished member of L-FRESH The Lion’s band, Mirrah is a quintessential artist, focused on not only empowering fellow women in hip-hop, but on creating music that is positive in sound, delivery and message, ensuring the youth of our community have strong female role models to look up to in this industry.
