MIRA GOTO ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF EAGERLY ANTICIPATED AND UPBEAT SINGLE, “ANYBODY ELSE”

“I hope people feel empowered to be themselves when they hear this song,” Exclaimed Mira Goto! “When you're feeling down, put it on, turn it up, dance in your bedroom, and sing into your hairbrush at the top of your lungs!! And remember you are beautiful just the way you are.”
“... I tried to be the girl in the movies,
On the cover of a magazine
I tried to be the girl that they tried to tell me
‘This is how a girl should be’
I ain’t no good at being anybody else
No good, no good at being anybody else
I might as well just be myself
Cause I ain’t no good at being anybody else
So good, so good, so good
So good, so good, so good�”
“Anybody Else” is a celebration of being true to yourself. When Mira met with her co-writers, Michael and Simon, to write that morning, it was a time when she was feeling a bit down on herself, and needed a pep talk. Sometimes, we all need that reminder that it's okay to just be ourselves, as beautiful and flawed as we all can be.

About Mira Goto:
Mira Goto follows in the footsteps of today’s country songwriting superstars, driving powerful lyrics along with catchy choruses throughout her catalogue. The highly anticipated release of her feel-good single, “Anybody Else,” sets the bar for 2020. The international, award-winning songwriter and performer inked a production deal with ArtistMax founded by Ken Caillat (Fleetwood Mac, Colbie Caillat) for her new EP, “Nobody Warned Me” projected for release in late 2020. Born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains in California, Mira currently resides in both Santa Cruz, CA and Nashville, TN. Her music journey began at the young age of three years old when she started playing and performing the violin. She traded it in for the guitar as a teenager, and while studying in college for a degree in nursing, she penned her first song. She recalls she would study during the day, and go to open mics at night. Mira recalls it felt more like a hobby at the time, and took several years to evolve into a career. She saved money for her first EP, under the name Mira Parfitt, by waiting tables and saving her tip money in an empty tissue box in her closet. Since then, she's played in cities across the country, even taking her show across the pond to her wide fan base in Europe. Mira made her radio debut early this year with her single "Nobody Warned Me" which charted at an impressive number 34 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart. Influenced by a broad range of music genres that included Alanis Morissette, Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Sheryl Crow, Simon & Garfunkel, Queen and Dashboard Confessional as well as being inspired by the songwriting of Lori Mckenna, Jane Bach, Steve Seskin, Brandy Clark, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Kassi Ashton, Dan Wilson, Wrabel and Pink, she finds herself intertwining the influences and techniques to find her own path on the road to writing songs that suit her style. She has shared the stage with such talent as John Ondrasik (of Five for Fighting), Greg Brown, John Craigie, Rhett Miller, and Jason Blume.
In her own words, Mira strives to play mid-sized venues, “think 200-400 people, a seated theater, in towns I've never been two, sell them out, and hear the crowd singing the words of my songs back to me. That's what success looks like to me. Of course I'd love a Grammy, and I'd love to play the Opry, but all those things would be cherries on top of the sundae of a room full of "strangers" who are there to sing your music with you. They're not really strangers if they know your music though, are they?”
An active member of the West Coast Songwriters since 2017 when she entered their songwriting competition and she won every round through to the grand finals in Berkeley, CA, Mira was awarded with the opportunity to perform at their annual conference. It was at this conference that she met her now producer, Ken Caillat, and from there everything she has accomplished has been a direct result of winning that competition. In 2019 Goto won the NEXTies Musician of the Year, and in 2020 she won The Santa Cruz Good Times' Best Local Musician.
