Mica Millar

Releasing her debut album ‘Heaven Knows’ to critical review last year, Mica Millar has quickly become one of the UK brightest new Soul stars, picking up Jazz FM’s prestigious ‘Soul Act of The Year 2022’ award alongside a nomination for ‘Breakthrough Act of The Year’ and featuring on the front cover of the iconic Blues & Soul Magazine amidst an array of five star album and live reviews and national radio support.

Following two monumental album launch shows in September including a sold out show at the capital’s prestigious Jazz Café and a special hometown performance filling out the iconic Albert Hall, Manchester, Mica performed at ‘Jazz Voice’ the opening gala of the EFG London Jazz Festival in November at Royal Festival Hall with the backing of esteemed arranger and conductor Guy Barker and the 42-piece Festival Orchestra, broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 and televised on BBC 4.

Self-written, arranged and produced, the debut album ‘Heaven Knows’ explores themes of human nature, spirituality, love, oppression, inequality and empowerment, drawing inspiration from a plethora of vintage soundscapes, most notably, soul, blues, gospel and jazz.

Amassing over a million streams since it’s release in June, ‘Heaven Knows’ has achieved widespread acclaim this summer, including a host of national radio support from the likes of Trevor Nelson at BBC Radio 2 and a slot on Clive Anderson’s ‘Loose Ends’ on BBC Radio 4.
