Since the late ’90s, Brooklyn-based Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlynhas has been crafting an impressive discography of free and individualistic pop music.

With nearly a dozen albums to date, Mirah is known for her introspective and insightful songwriting, as well as a willingness to build collaborations across genres, which includes an array of different songwriters, orchestral composers, and DJs. Long an indie favorite and critically acclaimed writer, Mirah has been gaining continued recognition for her craft (one song “Country of the Future” was recently featured on the Jill Soloway’s comedy, I Love Dick) and she is in the midst of completing new material, with a release set for early autumn of this year.

Mirah delivered a stripped down and poetic set at the Gladden House Stage with her bandmate Maia Macdonald on last day of the Nelsonville Music Festival. Long-time fans stopped by for a luminous set from across her career. Mirah started out with two songs from 2014’s Changing Light (K Records), including a stirring rendition of “Fleetfoot Ghost” and the rock swagger of “Radiomind.” The two finished off the set with the captivating “Hallelujah,” a track from Mirah’s collaborative album with Thao Nguyen of Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, appropriately titled Thao + Mirah (Kill Rock Stars).
