Biography

MIWAGEMINI

Knowing Miwa is like understanding the secrets to John Lennon’s lyrics:
“Picture yourself in a boat on a river/ With tangerine trees and marmalade skies/ Somebody calls you/ You answer quite slowly/ A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.” - Musicedge.com

Miwa’s airy vocal draws comparisons to Bjork, Nina Simone, Tom Waits, and Patsy Cline - Flagpole, Athens, GA

Who is Miwa? “Nina Simone meets Bjork,” said film director David Jones. “Robert Johnson mixed with Cat Power,” argued ukulele troubadour Michael Leviton. Then there was fashion designer Patrik Rzepski, who was convinced that Nico fitted into Miwa’s family tree somewhere. Whoever she is, she’s unique and you will not forget her once you hear her.

Miwa, now goes by Miwagemini began appearing in clubs in Brooklyn and Manhattan four years ago. She has shared the stage with the likes of Lenny Kay, Chris Barron, Jeff Lewis and Nellie McKay. She has played at prestigious New York clubs like Joe’s Pub, Rockwood Music Hall, and Mercury Lounge and has been invited to play at NXNE in Toronto (2006 & 2007) and Rockrgrl Conference in Seattle.
