Bio

Having travelled the world performing both solo and with her band, Mimi Gilbert has played nation-wide in the US, and toured throughout Europe, Australia and New Zealand - an impressive feat for a completely independent, self-made artist.

Mimi Gilbert was born and raised in California, where she first began singing and performing in public. At the age of 15, Mimi bought her first battery-powered amp and took to the streets of Santa Barbara. There, she learnt the art of story-telling, the impact of vulnerability, and the power of her voice.

Gilbert has opened for Julia Jacklin in Melbourne, Angie McMahon in LA, Lydia Cole and Nadia Reid in New Zealand to name just a few.

During her years on the road, Gilbert has worked quietly, honing her craft and recording songs. A self-proclaimed private person, she has spent a long time keeping much of herself in hiding; her life, her sexuality, her past. These songs shatter the walls of concealment she worked so hard to build - with heart-wrenching musical results.

The first single we hear of these efforts takes the name “Society’s A Mansion” and is out now.

you're a really, really, really special talent. this unfolds with such care and candour, your heavenly voice could be accompanied by a big folk-rock swell or nothing at all and still leave a memorable mark.

if i was a director, i'd get a mimi gilbert song in every movie i ever made. there's such impact in her voice and i feel like she could reflect and then value add to each scene that is lucky enough to have her singing in it.

Feels like i've known this song a whole life time. Soft but strong and your voice is warm and so comforting. Really beautiful Mimi Gilbert.
