Miz Metro is, by her own definition, an urban gypsy. She has even worked authentic gypsy rhythms into her music. Both her parents and step-parents were heavily involved in the arts and Miz Metro followed their lead from the time she was a child. She realized music would be her path as a student at LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts in New York City. It was there, after a bout with unrequited love, that she wrote her first complete song. “Something just took over,” she explains, “it was the only thing that really made me feel like I was dealing with my emotions.” The dynamic performer from Manhattan’s upper east side has been writing music ever since and this week I caught up with her to find out more about her music, her urban gypsy heritage, and how a conversation with Lady Sovereign changed both of their lives.
