Thanks for your time. Enjoy the killer music here. I hope to hear from you very soon.
TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT...
Mijo is a singer & songwriter from Melbourne, Australia. Recently back from a songwriting journey to the far north wilderness of Iceland where he wrote, recorded and made film clips for 25 new songs in 23 days. Mijo is looking to bring a new album to music lovers in Brighton, England and mainland Europe later this year where Mijo has done 100+ shows since 2010.
Mijo is no slouch, he has performed with triple Grammy Award Winner Gotye, Clare Bowditch, Missy Higgins, Tommy Emmanuel among many other wonderful Australian and international artists.
His live show journeys through diverse moods from the well crafted folk/country/rock gems, to the intimate prose in music and up to enlivening chant anthems, enough to incite epiphanies and perhaps even a moody singalong.
Although references are made to Buckley, Wainwright, Fleet Foxes and Cohen among others, Mijo continues to eludes pigeon-holes with his distinctive voice in the world of songwriting and emotive vocal delivery.
A FEW VIDEOS...
This was shot and recorded in GOTYE's studio in Australia.
Song: You've got your life
This was also shot and recorded in GOTYE's studio in Australia.
Song: Trapped fox
This was shot and recorded in the house in Iceland where I was on my own for 23 days.
No internet, no phone, no TV, no one to talk to. Just digging deep to write good songs, climbing mountains and making video clips.
Song: Valley of wild
WORD ON THE STREET...
"I've been a fan of Mijo Biscan's music for over 10 years, since seeing his remarkable album launch in 2005. I got to know Mijo better over the last few years by sharing some time together during a GOTYE tour around Europe. We get along very well and share a strong musical connection."
"Mijo is a very talented song-writer. Mijo's best work and his widening reputation are still ahead of him."
- CLARE BOWDITCH
"Lots of rustic Augie March influence in this brew. Which is good, because I like Augie March a lot.”
- Richard Kingsmill, Triple J
“Moody, heartbreaking, stunning, fucking epic.”
– Beat Magazine
“Fantastic haunting pop. There are Buckley-esque tones to the vocals - perfect for the soaring melodies. Lovely warm, acoustic instrumentation. Defo one for fans of Augie March, Mum, Beirut etc.”
- Dan Buhagiar, Triple J
“Lamplight (Mijo's band) and a sold-out Northcote Social Club traveled an intense nautically themed journey that was part sea-shanty, part thrash, part croon, and completely fucking breathtaking. The night saw an aggressive and vivid live beast unleashed after many months of recording.”
– Beat Magazine
