A Singer and Her Husband Relocate to Austin's Music Scene
Episode HNT-7102HSee all Episodes
Miranda and Rob are moving from Southern California to Austin, Texas, to follow Miranda's dreams of making it big as a singer/songwriter. Miranda hopes to find a Victorian-style house in the heart of downtown Austin, where all of the action is. Rob, on the other hand, would rather take advantage of Austin's numerous lakes and find a newer-construction home with water access. Also important in any potential house is a music studio for Miranda, as well as a home office for Rob.
“You Don’t Get to Say,” written and sung by Miranda Rose, is one of the few rockers on the Discoveries Playlist. The recent Austin transplant moved from Orange County, California, with her husband Rob last year to pursue her music. Since landing, she’s been busy making that dream come true — learning to play guitar and networking. Fun fact: she’s even documented her Austin home search for an episode of the popular HGTV series, “House Hunters.” Way cool!
How did you get your start in music?
Music is been a part of my life since I was very young. My first recollections are at age five singing “I Am a Promise” onstage at a church assembly. During visits to Grandma’s house she taught me the parts to “Heart and Soul” while I sat next to her at the piano. She would sing “Moon River” and “Where Are You Going My Little One?” I’ve always had a special affinity for music and melodies. It’s part of who I am and what I always knew that I would do.
It wasn’t until recently that I had the opportunity to do music on a professional level. When I completed the first full-blown, Hollywood-produced album, I officially felt like a true artist.
It's not at all about something as simple as a feeling; but more importantly; It’s about having something to say that can change someone’s entire outlook on life. I felt very accomplished after writing all the songs on that first album. I finally felt I had something to share that could really change the world.
