Biography

Nothing about 25-year-old Mixi is ordinary — from her name to her off-the-color-wheel hair to that “where’s-the-party” cheer she carries so effortlessly. It’s what made her stand out to casting executives on Fuse TV’s reality series, Redemption Song, in which 11 girls competed for a second chance at life and a music career. Well, that and the bottle of booze she brought to the audition, which earned her the title, “Blackout Drunk.” “I wasn’t smashed or anything,” Mixi defends weeks after her win. “It was Smirnoff Ice, who can get drunk off of that?!”

But it wasn’t just a casting stunt that caught the producers’ eyes, there was also her distinct jazzy voice and a good story. Mixi, an alias she started using in her pre-TV life, moved to Los Angeles from her hometown of Orlando, Florida with a boyfriend who dumped her as soon as they arrived in Hollywood. “I was pretty much homeless for a good year,” she says. To make ends meet, she got a job in insurance, but as a life-long music fan and natural-born adventurer, once rock ‘n’ roll beckoned, Mixi answered the call promptly and went on the road with a little known band called Anti-Product. “I cleared, like, 40 dollars in a month,” she recounts of her touring experience. “Before, I was making a f**k-load of money, but I didn’t move to LA to sell insurance.”


Not long after returning from the road and finding work as a bartender, she happened upon an ad on Craigslist looking for female singers who rock to compete in a new reality show. “I had no idea what would come of it, but figured I’d go check it out and see what happens,” says Mixi.
