From Mozart to Mute Math. From Imogen to Death Cab. Mia Kim's musical influences run the gamut of styles from singer/songwriter to modern alt-rock. Mia's sophomore release entitled "Who Is Sukey Rose?" was produced by veteran indie-rocker Jason Martin (Starflyer 59, Cold War Kids) and showcases her versatility in a unique blend of indie pop-rock. With her trademark dissonant guitar chords and versatile vocals that go from whisper soft to power house growl, one could say that she's been cultivating her musical moves since birth. Indeed, Mia's love for music apparently began in the womb as her opera singing mother would often practice her arias and play grand operas while Mia's sensitive ears were developing. This kind of preternatural music education seems not to have lost its effect, as Mia grew up singing more than she would talk. Trained early on in piano and violin, Mia began to experiment with original composition by writing her own classical compositions on the piano. During her latter years, she moved from writing instrumental music to going through what she terms as her "pop star phase", writing sweet pop songs with such well-meaning lyrics as 'feel the passion move you'. Fast forward to a few years ago, when Mia picked up a guitar and began to pen and perform more intricate and personal songs, songs that have so far garnered a phenomenal response from audiences and reveal a continued evolution of her singular sound.
