She recently visited the NPR West studios in Culver City, Calif., to talk about her songwriting process — and also to play a couple of tunes, live and solo.

"I write a lot of melancholy — but I like to write a little hope, too... I want to connect with people, and this is how I connect," Miles says. "Sometimes I think it's very important to go through things and let them happen, rather than avoid them. You're that much stronger when you come out the other side."
