Newcomer of the year 2006: Mira Craig
In a short period of time Mira Craig has become one of the most successful artists in Norway. After two hit singles, her debut album "Mira Mira" was released January 2006, to marvelous critics, top chart positions and it has soon sold to gold. She won "Newcomer of the year" at the annual Alarm awards and performed at other at other big award shows like Nordic Music Awards and Spelleman Awards.
Mira Craig was declared a musical genius by the Norwegian press for her urban, exotic and worldwide mixed sound. It's filled with voodoo, witch hunts, snake charmers and headhunters manifested in crunk, bounce, r&b, hip hop, keiso, soca, dancehall, and Norwegian and Japanese folk music. She steps in beats and makes samples with her voice, sings high and seductive and low and ruff. The album has a diverse and original sound that she describes as dreamy tribal.
Mira Craig has already impressed big stars like Wyclef Jean and Snoop Dogg. She sang a duet with Wyclef at the Quarts festival in 2001, supported Fugees on their recent European Tour, and she recorded a song with Snoop Dogg on his "Welcome to the chuuch - Da Album" that was released worldwide in December 2005. Snoop Dogg even used one of Mira's own songs on the compilation. A song called "Dinner in Bed".
The multitalented artist not only writes and produces her own songs, she designs her own clothes, does her own artwork and videos, makes all her dance choreography, and is releasing her album through her own record company, Homemade Records. She is a very intelligent and successful business woman indeed.
Mira Craig is half Norwegian, half American. She is mixed, half black and half white. Her musical path started already as a young child and by the age of 12 she worked as a singer and actress for a year in a youth television show (á la the Mickey Mouse club) for the national public broadcasting company NRK. At the age of 15 she had started writing songs and she signed a contract with a management and went on tour with a known Norwegian recording artist. Ever since then she has been working with music, films and clothing design.
She has had a big hit in Trinidad and Tobago and she is currently releasing her third single in Norway and her first single in Sweden. She is also starting the production of her new clothing line. Look out for this girl!
