ABOUT THE ARTIST
Originally from Flint, Michigan, this graduate of Louisiana’s famed Grambling State University is also a prolific songwriter who wrote 7 of the 10 songs on her award-winning debut album, Freeway Bound. These days Miko continues to perform and evolve as an artist, rather than be stereotyped or pigeonholed by genre or past success. As she moves forward, it’s no doubt that listeners will continue to be amazed and delighted, all while witnessing one of the most beautiful and illimitable singer-songwriters of our time. Miko is accompanied by Victor Campos (rhythm guitar) and Stan Schwartz (lead guitar).
