Banana Leaf Boy, born Jose Miranda, is a singer/songwriter based out of Boyle Heights, California. In 2020, he released his debut solo project titled Live Transmission From The Brown Starship, a live album featuring friends from the Los Angeles scene such as
Liliana Burgos (Fake Jazz), Rudy Torres (Mexico City Heartbreak), Hector Flores (Sonido Del Valle), and Francesco Canas. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Sister Mantos at The Brown Starship Studios. “Give It Time,” the album’s standout track, was featured on KROQ’s Latin Alternative show Alternalido and 88.5 FM’s LatinAlt Radio.
Later that year, Banana Leaf Boy released a solo EP titled En Casa Con Jose. As a challenge to himself, En Casa Con Jose was written, recorded, and performed entirely by Banana Leaf Boy at his home studio.
For his latest single, Adios, Banana Leaf Boy has teamed up with Bay Area producer, G-Flux, to deliver a Cumbia Romantica
reminiscent of the golden era of the 80’s and 90s. Adios features the signature sounds of cumbia specialist G-Flux and a warm
intimate vocal performance fans of Banana Leaf Boy have come to love.
