Mieke

Story

Elissa grew up singing German hymns at her local church; the husk of choral folk still affects her voice. …Over the past few years in particular has drawn a likeness to Laura Veirs and Regina Spektor in her ability to manipulate her voice to imitate a song’s melody. She’s as original as her juniors, breeding a special concoction of Canadian Americana, folk, pop and sonic exploration in place of using a traditional piano and guitar arrangement.

Her most recent release comes in the form of a self-titled EP officially released on August 28th.

Fantastic review of the new Mieke EP from DrunkenWerewolf Magazine. Album is out August 28th.

“Mieke is a beautiful exploration of melody, combining a fragile and emotive message from an artist committed to her decisions…as wise as it is considered, pulled together by Elissa’s undeniable talent. This is the sound of an artist carefully taking her first steps, and Mieke’s foundations are extremely robust. We can’t wait to hear more.” […]
