Michiko is a Sydney-born, London-based singer, songwriter and producer whose style is described as a fusion of electronica, dance and downtempo with smooth and soulful vocals. Influenced by artists such as Sade, Astrud Gilberto, Miguel Migs and often compared to Samantha James and Blue Six.

Born to German and Japanese parents, Michiko’s musical journey began at the age of 6 with piano lessons, followed by vocal training from the age of 16.  She began recording her own compositions out of frustration at the lack of music she could identify with on the radio and being somewhat of a geek, she developed a love for electronic production techniques. Following her university graduation Michiko moved to Germany and trained in Sound Recording and Jazz singing before relocating to London.

Michiko’s debut album Daydreamer was recorded in a humble basement bedroom in West London and released independently in 2006. Not expecting much of a reaction to the release, Michiko’s single Stuck On You gained the attention of many listeners, as well as that of Lemongrassmusic, under whose label Michiko’s follow up album No Place Like Home was released in 2010.

New Beginning was independently released on July 21st 2013 and marks the third album for Michiko.

My Home Recording Studio

I released my last album in 2013 and since then have had a break from writing music. But as of this month I’m back writing and recording again and it’s like the floodgates have opened. That’s not to say that everything I write is worthy of release... read more
