Who Is Grizzly Rose?
Miwa Gemini met Grizzly Rose while traveling alone in the desert among the Joshua Trees. Grizzly Rose is intimidating, a mystery, some even suspect sheʼs a murderer; but to Miwa, itʼs her combination of fearlessness, flourish and breezy glamour that make Grizzly Rose a worthy focus for her latest album.

Of course it isnʼt all Grizzly Roseʼs doing. Miwa Gemini embodies all of Grizzly Roseʼs qualities, combining a classical music education as a child in Japan to a creative aesthetic she developed studying art in New York City, now her home.

Miwaʼs repertoire combines folk-infused lullabies with balmy nocturnes and the melancholy of a dust-bowl carnival. Her unique voice pairs wonderfully with the distinctive talents of Aaron Burns (accordion/glockenspiel), Matt Brundrett
(drums/percussion), and many others, all of whom join as collaborators in Miwa Geminiʼs vision, which is at once natural and other-worldly.

It was not Miwa's intention to make her third album a "concept" album much less about her imaginary friend Grizzly Rose. However as the recording process progressed, it has become clearer and louder that Grizzly Rose has lots to share.

Miwa expands her sonic palette on The Fantastic Lies of Grizzly Rose. The opening track "Goodnight Trail" could be a perfect theme song for James Bond films if he was a cowboy; âMatchbox House Bluesâ and âCarroll Street,â employ a
complex orchestration of nontraditional instruments; âTroubling Waltz,â transports the listener to a carousel; and adopting a third language, French, the closing track "Chanson" is a moving elegant ballad.

âYou know that feeling when a storm has just died? When the air is wet and cold and the world just feels incredibly fresh? Well, this album [This is How I Found You] is the sound track to that moment. Emerging from New York like a newly
hatched butterfly, Miwaʼs gorgeous little album will give all those women that cry as soon as Bjork opens her mouth somebody else to get obsessed about.â - Incendiary Magazine
ââ¦dreamlike and dark, her particularly serious attitude and sometime sinistercabaret feel is always tasteful. â¦a healthy balance of vintage songwriting influences with a modern approach, incorporating minor chords with slow tempos
and spacey rhythms with matter-of-fact vocal deliveries, the result is not so much sadness as seriousness. Miwaʼs sober musical angle and sweet but solemn voice reflects a Billie Holiday influence, who like Miwa can sound quite grave but
is never without emotion.â - Jezebel Music
ââ¦magical and mythical seep into her songs; â¦bewitching moons and heartsick wishes at every turn. At times her deliveryâa powerful pixie-like punctuation--is reminiscent of Bjork, and despite the often sad subject matter, inspires a giggly
feeling. Gemini is, in short, enchanting.â - LAist
