Mitski

INFORMATION

Mitski Miyawaki is a Japanese-American born in Japan, raised in a variety of countries around the world (she conspicuously declines to state what work took her family to destinations such as Turkey and Congo), schooled at CUNY Hunter College in Manhattan and SUNY Purchase in Westchester County, and currently based in Philadelphia. Blending folk and singer/songwriter with roots in noise rock and shoegaze, she tells intricate and personal stories through her evocative lyrics, passionate voice, and dynamic instrumentation.

After extensive touring behind her 2018 album Be the Cowboy, Mitski announced in 2019 that she would take an indefinite leave from the music industry in order to enjoy having a fixed address for a while.
