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 recording artist Rebecca St. James, recording artists Keith & Kristyn Getty and Brenton Brown, and was a part of a musical theatre with celebrity actress and singer, Loretta Devine from the hit movies ‘Waiting to Exhale’ and ‘The Preacher’s Wife’.

Miko likes to stay busy with her music career and is currently performing with a top 40 dance party band, an 80’s tribute band and her own funk, soul and R&B band, 'Miko & the Magik Soul’. Currently she is working on a Donna Summer Tribute band, called ‘Dawn of Summer’.
