From Canada’s windy north comes an effortless performer with stories to tell. Mirika effortlessly blends blues, hip hop, rock and cabaret into an indie pop tapestry. Wordy, rhythmic and a little bit kitsch, this acclaimed songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is a strikingly unique artist.
Three albums, five countries of residence and a whole lot of travel in between- Mirika is a true musical gypsy with songs that stay stuck in your head.

Thank you to everyone (all 150 of ya) who came out to celebrate the launch of my 3rd solo album, The Little Ginger In Me Loves The Little Ginger In You. As an indie artist, I never expected to be able to say that I launched my album on a Friday night in Camden, London [...]
I am beyond excited for Friday- it is not so much that it is a launch party and therefore so much more special then a regular gig, but more because this album really, truelly says what I want to say as a musician. I like the diversity of songs and the authenticity of it all. [...]
