Emmy-nominated composer Miriam Cutler takes to the Comet Couch to talk about her new documentary "Ethel", a full-length feature on the life of Ethel Kennedy, which premiered at Sundance 2012 and will be released on HBO this fall.
Miriam is a renaissance woman. She started her career as a singer/horn player in a number of bands including Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo alongside Danny Elfman. She has co-produced a number of albums for such acts as Joe Williams, Nina Simone, Marlena Shaw, and Shirley Horn.
Miriam has become the go-to composer for documentaries. She was recently nominating for an Emmy for PBS' "Desert of Forbidden Art."
Her other credits include "One Lucky Elephant," "Vito" and "Poster Girl."
