last summer, miracle fortress released their debut album five roses on secret city records. hailing from montreal, graham van pelt is the colorful mastermind behind all the magic. known as a solo record project, sometimes graham enjoys to perform live with sunset rubdown’s drummer jordan robson-cramer, the luyas’ guitarist jessie stein and telefauna’s keyboardist adam waito to create different additions to the actual music. deeply inspired by phil spector and the beach boys, miracle fortress brings in elements of surprising ambient drones, seductive basslines, sparkling keys and subtle effects that linger on the absolute cusp of tranquil emotion and beauty.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
