Bio

Melbourne performer Mimi Velevska’s hypnotic allure and fierce stage show result in a Bona Fide Electric experience of soul and rock not to be missed. A VCA jazz trained vocalist, Velevska exhibits an explosive combination of songstress and band at their zenith, powers a driving, incessant momentum and exudes an enviable maturity. In collaboration with her backing band, Velevska leads a heaving-hitting, riff-laden sonic tirade reminiscent of Led Zeppelin and Guns N’ Roses in their pomp. In November 2012, Velevska launched her debut 4-track EP 'The Bona Fide Electric', recorded over a week at Sing Sing South Studios, which Tone Deaf called "rocking, passionate music that reminds you you’re alive." Her live show, combining Velevska’s love for art, music and creative expression are bound to soon attract a wider appreciation befitting the talent of this unique performer. "This was no ordinary film clip launch. But then, Mimi Velevska is no ordinary singer... It’s all about the performance for Velevska— exerting a raw energy, drawing in the audience, expressing herself on stage." - The AU Review "I am a huge fan of female fronted rock bands, and I think that Mimi Velevska just might be one of the best right now." - The Rock Pit "Mimi Velevska is destined to be one of Melbourne's better rock n roll front women - a big statement, yes - but see her perform and you will see what I mean." - Australian Musician Network "This is the kind of music, we imagine, that’d punch you in the teeth in a live show.” - Vulture Magazine "AUSSIE Ballsy funky rock singer with a great EP of full on rock excitement. WORTH A LISTEN" - JOY 94.9FM
