Mitra Dee is a singer/songwriter that writes from the soul. Mitra writes about her own life experiences in hopes that her music will touch those who listen. As a cancer survivor and mother of five children, she has had many life experiences to draw from. Some of the personal topics she covers in her music and blog include death, divorce, motherhood, mental health, and spirituality.
"Music for me is an expression of who I am and where I have been. It is also a great tool for communicating ideas and thoughts to others. It is my sincere desire that my lyrics and music will touch those who listen in a personal way. We are all human and we all have struggles in life. If I am able to benefit others by sharing my heart through music and words, then my goal as a musician and writer has been achieved.”-Mitra Dee
