This blog is dedicated to spotlighting select songs of independent or small-label artists. These songs can often (but not always) be characterized as pop music, encompassing its many sub-genres. However, none of these songs can be classified as “Top 40” (or any sub-genre thereof) typically heard on American radio and television. Proving that good, quality pop music is available…you just have to be willing to search for it or know where to find it. This blog takes away all of the work and leads the reader/listener straight to the discovery and enjoyment. The ultimate goal, of course, is to bring these “unknown” artists to the attention of the general public and give them well-deserved attention.

Song in the Spotlight: “Tiny Windows” (Miria, from Under the Surface (2007))

Genre:  Delicate Pop

Review:  Following the birth of her daughter in 2012, Miria doesn’t appear to any longer be musically active.  However, such inactivity in no way detracts from the importance of the lyrical content of “Tiny Windows.”  Reminiscent of such songs as, maybe, Jewel’s “Foolish Games” and others in a similar vein, “Tiny Windows” offers a commentary on two socially conscious, but seriously flawed, human beings dreaming of a better world.  Ok, the subject matter is a little heavy for pop music, but consider all of the hit songs in the past quarter century that fall into this category…many more than you think…or can even remember.  It’s because music is meant to evoke emotion and one of our most powerful is the ability to empathize and feel something bigger than ourselves.  So, put on your empathy hat and prepare to have your eyes (and ears) opened to the possibilities of recognizing the unseen and the realization that inaction equals acceptance through the muse that is Miria.   Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
