Alt / Rock / Pop
Sample of mini doco in production to coincide with publicity and album launch.
A bit of bio and context for you that I've been sending out to a few peeps.
I've been fortunate enough to perform with Gotye, Clare Bowditch, Missy Higgins, Tommy Emmanuel among many other wonderful Australian and international artists.
A brand new album titled GOLDEN MOMENT has just been completed. Mijo will be launching 3 singles from August and launch the full length album in February 2019, with full publicity and media promotion.
The songs traverse diverse moods from well crafted folk/rock gems, to a few enlivening chant anthems that are enough to incite bright epiphanies and perhaps even an audience mega sing-along.
Although people reference artists such as Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, Fleet Foxes and Leonard Cohen, the music brings together a bit of all of them and something else which is none of them.
Here are three tracks that give a sample of the pop, the rock and the folk feels of the album.
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
Let's make a time to get together and shoot some images.
