We had the good fortune of connecting with Miki Rose and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Miki, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m an independent songwriter, and artist. I’ve released 2 solo EPS, ‘XOXO’ & ‘Nomad Diaries Vol. 1’, and 1 collab EP, ‘Over & Over’ with El. Train. I’ve had songs placed on Sky TV and Netflix, and radio support from stations like BBC Radio 1, BBC 1xtra, KROQ, Rinse FM, Soulection Radio on Beats 1, and more. I’m usually living between London and LA but due to Covid I’m quarantining in LA. I’ve always said “that no one is going to work harder for you than you”. I think everyone thinks there is a big team behind me, but I’ve always been my creative director, stylist, video editor, songwriter, publicist, tour manager, a&r, the list goes on…I love being hands on and I love having control. Currently(because of Covid) I’m my own engineer, which I’m trying to learn to love. I just recently released my single ‘Back to Complicated.’

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well it’s a little hard imagining people visiting right now, but if we were in a corona free world, I would definitely take them to hike in Griffith Park, Go to Malibu, I love Zuma beach. For meals with a view, I would say The Sunset in Malibu, The Penthouse at The Huntley in Santa Monica, or Perch in DTLA. Stout definitely has the best burger’s in LA, and best Vegan restaurant is My Vegan Gold in SilverLake. For drinks, I would say Ace Hotel Downtown or Sky Bar in West Hollywood.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’m very grateful to have been introduced via soundcloud to one of my main collaborators and producers, El Train. He’s been very supportive in my journey thus far and we have a lot of songs that will be seeing the world soon.
