Bio

 

Miko began her musical pursuits at a very young age playing the piano and alto saxophone for a high school marching band. She soon discovered that singing was a deeper passion of hers and started singing in the church and playing the keys with her father. Drawing on influences from Gospel, R&B, Funk, Soul and Jazz as well as playing musical instruments, has helped develop her as an artist.

Miko holds a Bachelor’s degree in Visual & Performing Arts that she earned from Cal State University San Marcos in which she studied music, fine art, graphic design and video production.

Miko has performed in many groups ranging from R&B, funk, gospel, blues, Latin jazz, Reggae and Top 40.  She has had airplay on KPRZ ‘K-Praise’ Radio, Comcast Cable and most recently sang as a back-up singer to Grammy and Dove Award winning artist Rebecca St. James as well as other recording artists such as Keith & Kristyn Getty and Brenton Brown.

Miko likes to stay busy with her music career and is currently performing with a top 40 dance party bands and an 80’s tribute band. She is currently working on her own funk, soul and R&B band, 'Miko & the Magik Soul’.
