Miranda Lee Richards is a San Francisco-based musician whose roots lie in the folk and Americana worlds.

She stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, along with Sammy Smith on vocals, to share a stripped-down, acoustic take on her songs in an intimate environment, and to offer some background on her musical history.
