1. Mira: An 'ethereal', 'shoegaze', 'goth'/'alt rock' band from Tallahassee, Florida currently consisting of vocalist Regina Sosinski, drummer Alan Donaldson, guitarist Tom Parker, bass guitarist Melody Fleck, and guitarist Mark Davidson. Formed in 1996, Mira went on to sign with Projekt records in 2000 and released their debut full-length album, Mira (self-titled). This was followed by the album Apart in 2003 and There I Go Daydreamer in 2005. Mira has also released several EPs and CD singles on Projekt.

Mira creates floating, shimmering melodies overlaid by Sosinski's 'ethereal' vocals. While layers of guitars create a distinctly 'shoegaze' backdrop. Mira's influences include 'Cocteau Twins', 'My Bloody Valentine', 'Mazzy Star', 'Ride' and 'Love Spirals Downwards'. Their sound also is somewhat similar to contemporary Projekt band 'Autumn's Grey Solace'

Mira did two albums called "Mira" (1995, which contains her biggest hit song "Onpa iisi päivä, made by R.E.L.S. like the most of the other stuff on it too) and "Miljoona volttii" (1997), the both released by Audiovox Records. Later in the 2000`s she has taken part in Finland`s SC trials and recorded 2 songs for the collection Synteesi: joulubuumi (2004). She has been satisfied with her current life without being inspired about having the same success than in the mid 1990`s.
