Tiny Songs

Myra Moreta

A collection of uniquely composed and arranged chamber pop reminiscent of artists such as Elliot Smith, and Daughter with distinctive Middle Eastern and world influence.

"Tiny Songs" combines lilting melodies with sometimes double-edged lyrics for a melancholic mood in which the listener can find humor. Bassist, Adam Goodwin lends his experimental, modern playing style to the album and violinist and vocalist, Israel Heller brings a special kind of classical flavor to folk music.

Centered mostly around the cavaquinho, a small guitar-like instrument from Brazil, Myra Moreta's songs are actually quite far away from Brazil and rather sparse. However, you can hear her musical influences such as Elliott Smith, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, as well as music from Bulgaria and Turkey. She combines her love of dissonance and classical music with the consonance of folk music and her own songwriting to bring the listener to a new place.
