"I am happy to do whatever I can to bring about change in thinking! So saying 'I’m your man, I’ll do anything you ask me to..' isn’t so much about gender as it about showing up and being the person your partner needs in that moment." - Holly

Holly Miranda


Read Holly's article with Consequence of Sound about the trouble with binary gender.

Holly Miranda grew up between Detroit and Nashville, two music towns that would influence her own journey in a very profound way. She began playing piano at the age of 6, taught her self guitar at 14 and moved to New York at 16 to start her professional career. For nearly 20 years Holly has been performing, writing and producing with some of the best in the business. She has performed with the likes of Karen O, Lou Reed, The XX and Lesley Gore. She released two records with her band “The Jealous Girlfriends” and has co-written and produced a mass of other projects.

In Q1 2018 Holly will release her third solo album on Dangerbird Records titled “Mutual Horse”, with assistance from Josh Werner (Dr. John, Lee Scratch Perry), Jared Samuel (Yoko Ono), Jim Kirby Fairchild (Grandaddy, Modest Mouse), Kyp Malone (Tv On The Radio), Maria Eisen (Underground System), Matthew Morgan (Built to spill, Modest Mouse) and many others. The eclectic mix of players make for some compelling grooves. This record finds Holly bridging the gap between 2010’s experimental synth laden release “The Magicians Private Library” and 2015’s stripped back soulful self-titled record. Miranda takes an honest and intimate approach, while maintaining her sense of humor and sonic explorations. Make sure to catch Holly live in US and Europe in 2018!

Lyrics


If you want a lover

I'll do anything you ask me to

And if you want another kind of love

I'll wear a mask for you

If you want a partner, take my hand, or

If you want to strike me down in anger

Here I stand

I'm your man

 

If you want a boxer

I will step into the ring for you

And if you want a doctor

I'll examine every inch of you

If you want a driver, climb inside

Or if you want to take me for a ride

You know you can

I'm your man

 

Ah, the moon's too bright

The chain's too tight

The beast won't go to sleep

I've been running through these promises to you

That I made and I could not keep

Ah, but a man never got a woman back

Not by begging on his knees

Or I'd crawl to you baby and I'd fall at your feet

And I'd howl at your beauty like a dog in heat

And I'd claw at your heart, and I'd tear at your sheet

I'd say please (please)

I'm your man

 

And if you've got to sleep a moment on the road

I will steer for you

And if you want to work the street alone

I'll disappear for you

If you want a father for your child

Or only want to walk with me a while across the sand

I'm your man

 

If you want a lover

I'll do anything you ask me to

And if you want another kind of love

I'll wear a mask for you
