Miranda Writes takes the stage at Levitt AMP Music Series

Posted

UTICA — The Levitt AMP Utica Music Series continues on Monday, Aug. 15, with Miranda Writes, a hip hop artist from New York City known for her modern yet back-to-basic sound with strong lyrics and diversified beats.

Despite not being signed to a major label, Writes’ 2018 single “Too Blessed” rose to No. 5 in the Digital DJ Pool charting alongside Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj and Ciara. Her music has always featured positive messages and a focus on her community.

Featured in Forbes Magazine earlier this year, she is celebrated as a Burton ambassador, being the first biracial female hip hop artist to cross over into the snowboarding market.

In 2018, Writes became the NYC Ambassador for the Chill Foundation, which Burton Snowboards founders Jake Burton Carpenter and Donna Carpenter founded in 1995 and which works with approximately 3,000 kids annually. Her single “Be About It” features the Chill NYC youth, with all proceeds donated to the organization. 

Nazzy and Leeky XIV will open the show at 6 p.m. at Kopernik Park, located at 317 Genesee Street at the corner of Eagle Street and Park Avenue.

Admission is free. Bring a blanket or lawn chair. The series also will offer art activities for young concert-goers and food trucks will be on site.

The concerts are sponsored in part by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a national funder of creative placemaking that empowers communities to inject new life into underused public spaces through free, outdoor concerts.
