What’s a typical day like for you? I wake up early, 7-9 a.m., work on my music career – online social media/website updates, setting up workshops & shows, creating videos and brainstorming/planning how to share my book, music and workshops with more people, or I go to my part-time office day job. In the evening, I play music, coach my songwriting clients, do more online updates/music business work and go to/play shows.
What in your life is really important to you? Playing/writing music, my relationship with my boyfriend, family, friends, traveling (experiencing new places), staying in shape and being involved in personal development.
What would you like to be remembered for? I would like to be remembered for sharing the joy of music with as many people as I can; inspiring and encouraging people to follow their hearts and be fearlessly creative; writing great songs that inspire people and creating a positive atmosphere of community; connecting people through creativity and self-expression; to assist people in following their hearts and living a life that they’re passionate about.
What role does fashion play in your life? I have my own sense of fashion and am very specific about how I dress. I like to feel comfortable and express who I am through what I wear. I generally like to wear jeans,t-shirts with cool designs and kicks. I play indie pop/rock and like to jump around on stage – so it kind of suits that.
What do you love about shopping at Fresh Collective? I like the variety and cool designs, and the friendly staff. There are items that I really like – some of the dresses, pants and t-shirts that I wouldn’t normally wear, but enjoy trying on and would wear on certain occasions. Trying on outfits there opened up my desire to expand my style.
What do you have that you want to promote?
- My band, Signe Miranda’s Veranda.
- I co-lead a songwriting workshop with Taylor Abrahamse, The Song Creation Workshop – our next free sample workshop is May 10th in Toronto.
- My book, The Song Creation Formula: 7 Easy Steps to Writing Your Song, just went #1 on Amazon.com. I interviewed seven of my favourite songwriters in the book.
- I also recently launched a songwriting coaching company – The Creative Leaders.
Is there anything else we should know about you?
I have a record label, Concrete City Records and organize shows and release my albums under that name. My band’s latest album is September Night.
