The up-and-coming artist has also been filming Miraa & Friends, a mini-series of studio sessions now airing on her YouTube channel. The seven-part series build a picture of life in the studio and feature such artists and producers as Jevon, Cosima, Sam Tompkins, Big Zuu, Samm Henshaw, Knucks, Moss Kena and Luke Gomm.

“My talent is my pen”

May is also much in demand as a songwriter, and has recently worked with Nafe Smalls on the mixtape track ‘Bad For Me’. She also co-wrote Jorja Smith’s summer 2019 UK top ten hit ‘Be Honest,’ featuring Burna Boy. “My talent really is my pen,” she recently told The Guardian. “I’ve never really cared about awards or statistics. I get messages from people every day saying that my music uplifts them; I’m good with that.”

As she built her profile during 2019, Miraa sold out two headlining shows in London. She performed at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds Festivals, The Ends Festival and BBC 1Xtra Live in Birmingham. Her keenly-awaited debut album will be released later this year.
