Hey! My name is Mireia, I’m 16 years old and I have a crazy urge to communicate and express everything I have on the inside! I am very grateful to be able to introduce to you “elegia”.
“elegia” is my first album of original songs of my own that I am decided to release and share.
The album is composed of 16 themes that I wrote when I was between 11 and 16; that talk about my story and about all that has burned me so much that I have needed to explain through my voice and, especially, the piano.
I remember that, when I discovered the word “elegy”, when I was 13 or 14, it rescued me. It rescued me because it dignified everything that scandalized me so much: lamentation, not being grateful, being afraid, and not understanding, principally, death.
But elegy for me does not only speak about the death of someone close. It speaks about the loss of oneself, of not knowing how to refind oneself, of falling down. But it also speaks of a presence, of that who has been in my life or has left it. From non-corresponding loves to fights with myself, or the relationship with the figures of a father and a mother. And it is this concrete presence that makes “elegia” not to be born from an irreparable sadness, but from a hope that tells me that life and all the road I have been building during this phase are loved and intended. That all that has happened has yielded results, in one way or another. And, in fact, the album itself is the testimony of this; because since I learned how to speak and sing, I have always felt the infinite urge to explain, communicate, empty everything I carry inside that hurts or that is good news. And music and art, in my case, have always been my natural instrument to understand, cure, love, forgive and communicate.
I feel infinitely fortunate for having so many beautiful people by my side that help me, support me, and make me think that what I do has an actual value. The album will be made thanks to the help of the most beloved people, who from their love for art, for music, for the purest craftwork, and for me, have bet on staying by my side throughout this little road I’m starting to walk on. Without them, and I am saying this sincerely, I could not be doing this.
Which is, deep down, what the album tells: how the gaze of that who loves you is always much more true and interesting than yours.
That’s why I need your help! From now on, you can be a patron and by contributing, you can take part in this project! I will be immensely grateful! It is something grand, something important and deeply loved for me and those surrounding me. For this, I invite you too to be able to be a part of this and to take a bit of the project for you! I am so excited that if we make it, you will be able to make all these pieces more yours each day!
I really hope that you enjoy it and that it heals you as it has healed me.
The incredible moment in which someone from the audience lets being touched in the heart and becomes emotional! What a gift!

Who we are
Hey! That’s it! I am Mireia! And it looks like I am a musician! I guess I say it this way because I feel limited with the name “singer-songwriter”. I do not completely consider myself a pianist, although I am studying to finish the “Grau Professional” in piano. I do not consider myself a singer, either, I am one of those who motivate in the shower and do what they can. I am trying to learn how to play the guitar and I don’t know if I do it properly, but I do consider myself to be an unconditional music lover and of all that entails making music. To sum up, I am a disaster, a learner, but also faithful in body and soul when I get on stage; I tire myself and get exhausted.
I conceive music, not as an end, but as a mean, as a tie between that most human of ours and that that, mysteriously, slips through our hands. That which we do not own. We could say I am a little girl trying to understand the world.
Since I was born, music has always been a fundamental pillar of both my education and my familiar everyday nature. My mother is a musician, and thanks to her and my father’s sensibility, music has always been seen at home as a means of expression, but also of relationship, gratefulness, and forgiveness.
And it has always occupied so much presence that I am incapable of separating everything that happens in my life with it.
I was one of those who, if it was necessary to make a scene in front of everyone, I was the happiest on earth. In fact, I think I have all my life been trying to attract the attention of looks, both on and off the stage. I do not hide from this! I have always liked people listening to me. That they listen to everything I want to communicate, that which I always carry on the inside, that shakes and shouts with an urge to get out.
I always have something to say. And little by little I am working on listening more, being more attentive, and, every once in a while, staying silent and letting others surprise me.
In the end, I feel a lot; I am intense and emotional and I cannot live together with so much content if I do not let it go every once in a while. If I do not untie it and let it flow and run away, I cannot stand it.
I have to say that, thanks to God, I have always lived surrounded by others. From great parents, friends, and teachers, all of them have always had such an influence in me and in everything I could posteriorly create. It is them who have been capable of cultivating my accumulation of feelings and emotions, of educating it and making it grow.
All of them, in one way or another, have been more than capable of making me fall in love constantly with music, with how it is made, with how it is studied, and with how one can make it their own, within another thousand things.
Throughout the journey that I have been doing these years and that has allowed me to grow, both as a person and as a musician, I have understood that my sensibility and fragility to understand everything is not compatible with this world, but it corresponds and is necessary. For this, I also understand creation as a tool, not only autobiographical, that is born from a lack of expression, but also provocative, that allows shaking the heart of a person that listens to something and it means a meeting with the most real and sincere part of everyone. That’s what I am made for, and we all are.
