ABOUT

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, Soul, Funk, Blues 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 from California State University San Marcos in which she studied music, fine art, and graphic design. Miko is also a songwriter and has written quite a few songs which can be heard on two of her recorded albums, “His Love Reigns” and “Give Him Praise”.
Miko has performed in many groups ranging from R&B, funk, gospel, blues, Latin jazz, Reggae and Top 40 and has done shows at a few venues throughout Southern California including performances at Pala Resort & Casino, Coyote Bar & Grill, Tropicana Laughlin, Vintana Restaurant, KPRZ ‘K-Praise’ Radio, Cable as well as sang back-up for Grammy winner and recording artist, Rebecca St. James.
