Bio

From the small Aboriginal community of Woorabinda in Central Queensland comes a 20 year old with a voice ready to be heard.

A strong, proud Pitjantjatjara/Torres Strait Islander woman, Miiesha (Pronounced My-ee-sha) has been singing for her family and her community since the age of 8, and has since been developing her songwriting as a teenager. Now stepping onto a bigger stage, Miiesha is sharing her music with the world.

Inspired by the sounds of RnB, Gospel and Soul, and the power of spoken word poetry, Miiesha’s music seeks to bring people together to help educate and inspire.

Gifted with a voice that showcases vulnerability and strength, often in the one breath, Miiesha sings of her people and her community with the words of a leader and a teacher.

Having supported the likes of Baker Boy, Briggs, Adrian Eagle and Thelma Plum as well as performing at Vanfest, Miiesha is using her voice and her message to bring her community to the world.

It's got soul, vulnerability and power. I'm with Dec, Miiesha will be one of the big voices of the year.

I'm with DRH. Black Privilege was a head turner but this new one goes beyond that. Girl, you got impact!

I liked Black Privilege but I really love this! That vocal take is magic and the flowing R&B production gives the whole track some quiet energy.
