Mia Cathleen is a Mi’kmaq singer/songwriter and visual artist from Halifax, Nova Scotia. She’s been writing music since high school, but only recently began to perform after releasing her debut, self-written, recorded, and produced the album “Know Me.”
Her style and sound centre around her lyricism, which can be dark, romantic, or playful, but is always poetic, and her chord progressions, which feature a fun mash-up of unique rhythms and scales. While she is best described as a folk singer, Mia aims to add nuance to her style by drawing inspiration from a wide variety of artists and genres, from 90s metal and grunge to jazz and rap.
Mia is currently in the midst of recording her second album, which she hopes to release sometime next year.
