ABOUT

I BELIEVE IN MAGIC

“I often feel that each album is simply something I birth into this world, rather than something I am responsible for creating. I never know when I will hear the next call, but I just know to be ready when it comes.”

M ichiko is a Sydney-born, London-based singer, songwriter and producer whose style is described as a fusion of electronica, dance and downtempo with smooth and soulful vocals. Influenced by artists such as Sade, Astrud Gilberto, Miguel Migs and often compared to Samantha James and Blue Six.

Born to German and Japanese parents, Michiko’s musical journey began at the age of 6 with piano lessons, followed by vocal training from the age of 16.  She began recording her own compositions out of frustration at the lack of music she could identify with on the radio and being somewhat of a geek, she developed a love for electronic production techniques. Following her university graduation Michiko moved to Germany and trained in Sound Recording and Jazz singing before relocating to London.

Michiko’s debut album Daydreamer was recorded in a humble basement bedroom in West London and released independently in 2006. Not expecting much of a reaction to the release, Michiko’s single Stuck On You gained the attention of many listeners, as well as that of Lemongrassmusic, under whose label Michiko’s follow up album No Place Like Home was released in 2010.

S implicity has become the trademark of Michiko’s recordings. Still created entirely at home, whereever that happens to be at the time, her albums evoke authenticity over sophistication. For this reason Michiko continues to publish her own albums.

Her latest album “Awakening” is a celebration of electronic dance & 80s pop with soulful lyrics that touch the listener. In Michiko’s own words: “Awakening is, as an entire album, a love song to you – the listener. Because you are enough as you are, you don’t need anything or anyone else to make you whole. This has been my awakening and I want to share this with you.”

HELLO

I read all my messages personally and I’d love to hear from you.
