"Mica'sMess: No consessions, just pure music"

Mieke van Veen is born in a family of musicans. Her brother is the musical partner of Anouk (dutch known rockstar): Bart van Veen. In 2000 Mieke recorded her first demo in Londen and played as sidekick for artists like Orfeo. Now, 11 years later, she is back to basics. No concessions, just pure music.

Listening to Miekes EP 'Mica'sMess', you want to hear a whole album. Great songs with a folky vibe with a litlle poppy twist. Her sensitive voice is lovely to hear, aspecially in the minimal setting with just a guitar: the songs are still strong. Aswell as on the up tempo songs ('Friday') as on the smalle ones ('Tango') Mica's voice sounds beautifull. The songs are from high quallity. The ep is just great to listen to and contains variety of songs that are intimate and personal. On her EP Mieke worked with artists like Menno Gootjes on guitar (Focus), Michel van Schie on bass (Anouk, Evert band) and Satindra Kalpoe on percussions (relax).

All in all Mieke's personal ep gives you a good impression of what she can really do. After hearing the EP we are all in. We want a whole album!
