Miranda Eleanor de Fonbrune Cooper is pop royalty – a British songwriter who has penned over 30 UK top 10 hits, including four #1 singles.
Miranda began as a dancer (for Gina G), where she met Brian Higgins, founder of Xenomania, in 1997. They went on to find commercial success and critical acclaim writing songs for Girls Aloud, Sugababes, Pet Shop Boys, Franz Ferdinand, Kylie Minogue, Alesha Dixon, and many more.
More recently, she has celebrated success with rising star Maisie Peters, co-writing “There It Goes” and “The Last One” from her UK #1 album The Good Witch, as well as “John Hughes Movie” from her debut album. She also co-wrote Griff’s debut single “Mirror Talk”.
Alongside her work in pop music, Miranda has also been focusing her talents on writing musicals. Billionaire Boy was the first show she co-wrote; it went on to win the ‘Best Show for Children and Young People’ at the UK Theatre Awards 2018. In 2021, Fantastically Great Women premiered with rave reviews and also picked up the ‘Best Show for Children and Young People Award’ at the UK Theatre Awards in 2022.
Miranda has set up Tilted Musicals with theatre producer Sam Hodges. They plan to bring together the best writers from both the theatre and music industry to create exciting work. Current projects include a one woman show about motherhood, co-written with global pop writers Jon Shave and Jason Pebworth, as well as an adaptation of When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, and the cult indie film Son of Rambow - both written with her long term Xenomania collaborator Nick Coler.
