Bio

R&B Soul artist, Mi-kaisha, grew up on the streets of Sydney’s music scene. The soundtrack of her childhood included soulful tunes from the 90s and island tunes from her father’s Koori Radio Hip-Hop show ‘Island Hopping’.

She is a ‘city girl through and through’ and her lyrics represent hard-hitting, often political messages about being a young Aboriginal & Tongan woman in Australia. She is the woman she is today, because of the strong women in her community who have raised her to be unapologetic in everything she does.

Mi-kaisha is currently completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU and is the first Indigenous Australian student to be accepted into the program. She is currently soaking up her time back home in Sydney, Australia with her community and is preparing to head back to NYC in the Fall to complete the final years of her degree.

Mi-Kaisha's voice is just like silk, and this low soulful RnB track maintains a beautiful energy whilst showing off her stunning vocal range at the same time. Be right back, just going to deep condition my hair, cover myself in cocoa butter and practice self care to this one.

Heartfelt stuff that translates well. Love the way you push your range in the verses too.
