Miranda Ferriss Jones is a songwriter, theater creator, and performer whose work focuses on feminine identity and explores the spaces between binaries. Born and raised in Vermont, Miranda's biracial identity and multicultural upbringing inspire the stories she tells and the music she creates.


After studying at the London Academy of Dramatic Arts and Yale University, Miranda turned her attention to composition. Her show “The Precipice” was developed and produced by Bob Weir, founding member of the Grateful Dead, in collaboration with Jeff Chimenti, Weir's longtime pianist. An acclaimed show, “The Precipice” received grants from the Furthur and Rex and Wattis foundations and underwent a developmental workshop at Z Space. Miranda was a participant in the esteemed BMI Musical Theatre Workshop and was commissioned to compose a new musical about 19th-century sculptors Edmonia Lewis and Emma Stebbins. 


Miranda's two-woman musical, "Showing Up," enjoyed sold-out runs at Vermont's Town Hall theater and is now preparing for an exciting regional theater tour. Additionally, her concept album, "Spiral Bound," garnered a workshop staging by the Montclair Theatre Project and will premiere in NYC at Joe’s Pub this November. Miranda’s original music has been brought to life by legendary performers such as Laura Benanti, Micaela Diamond, and Andrea Macasaet.


In addition to her artistic endeavors, Miranda fulfills her mission of helping women tap into their artistry and claim the power of their voices through her creative coaching practice and workshops. As a community organizer, she passionately advocates for educational equity and women's rights, utilizing storytelling and artful gatherings to promote social justice.
