One thing I love about working in music is the fact that people love to share their latest and greatest new artist they’re feeling and present it to me. With that said, I couldn’t be more than flattered. Thanks to my good friend and colleague Joel Naga, I’ve had the opportunity to listen to a new artist from Toronto who goes by Mieke. Elissa Mielke is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter that has been performing since she was 14, and most recently unveiled her debut self-titled EP under the moniker Mieke. Mieke has had an extensive learning process in the music and modelling industries. Having fought with producers and labels for creative control in the past, her latest EP was a statement of independence.
After the first listen, I was instantly hooked by her distinct voice and deep songwriting. With a great team, an established foundation and a growing career in modelling, I definitely look forward to what the future has in store for Mieke! Take a listen to her latest music below and let us know what you think of our Artist 2 Watch!
