Miki P is a songwriter with an astute ability to command any room she performs in. A natural talent paired alongside a drive to connect with others, Miki is a touring musician carrying on elements of rock & pop. Settled with a message resonating loud and clear to people from all walks of life through her imaginative, fun, and confessionally honest songwriting, Miki sings of love in all its forms.

Listeners have referred to Miki’s music as a nod to 70s rock songstresses such as Carole King, Stevie Nicks, and Karen Carpenter, combined with 90s-00s pop sensibilities spanning artists like Alanis Morissette, The Cranberries, and Sheryl Crow. One review noting, “The accompaniment of Miki P’s voice is kind enough to squeeze your trembling hand, and strong enough to teach you to stand on your own. Altogether, the music flourishes right alongside you, growing into itself like a series of spring perennials.”

An inspired musician, Miki has a rare capability to not only be able to share her life experiences and lessons learned through her voice & lyrics, but also through every instrument she performs on. Always a student, she both performs and records on guitar, drums, percussion, piano, bass and ukulele.
