"One of the rare young singers who can easily sing with a sultry, smoky, seductive, mature-beyond-her-years confidence before switching to a kind of playful, girlish optimism and flirtatiousness, or a smooth, old school hip hop cadence through a turn of a phrase..." INS & OUTS MAGAZINE

Biography

If there is one word to describe Miz Metro, it's UNLIMITED. Hailing from New York City, Miz Metro grew up playing street ball & scatting in street corner ciphers. Her name was acquired from the homemade door-knocker earrings she dons, made from NYC Metro cards. Her earrings have since become her staple style item, a testament to her unique and quirky personality. Whether she's rocking solo with a looping pedal and midi MPC or with her 8-piece band, The Makebelieves, Miz Metro brings promises of an aural and visual ride.

Miz Metro is a modern music media artist, one that embodies the power today's artist can have in the creation and distribution of their image- as an art form in itself. She has created a unique hybrid style through well-crafted lyrics and an unconventional soulful pop sound. Often compared to Amy Winehouse, Fiona Apple, Lily Allen and Gwen Stefani, she describes her main influences to be "A cross between Etta James, Judy Garland & De La Soul."

Miz Metro has written and licensed exclusive songs for ABC Family, MTV & other TV networks. Her VJ experience from conducting exclusive on-camera interviews with Fab 5 Freddy, GZA of WuTang, Pharaoh Monch, Spankrock, Lady Sovereign and others has allowed her to produce "Miz Metro: UNLIMITED," an online interactive TV show, expanding her presence & fan base with exclusive mobile content.

After winning the viewers poll for best performance, Miz Metro appeared internationally for a second time on Fox Five's Fearless Music TV show. She was a featured artist on Myspace.com's Music homepage, received over 600,000 plays on IMEEM's featured playlist and has over 40,000 ringtone downloads from myxer.com. Accepted as an official showcasing artist at the 2009 CMJ & 2010 SXSW festivals, with rave reviews from national publications like THE SOURCE magazine, Miz Metro has received exposure via mainstream media outlets for her self-released debut album UNLIMITED. She has been featured on compilations with the likes of Chaka Khan and Sandra Bernhard and has performed on bills and in festivals with Drake, The Cool Kids, Moby, Jean Grae, and Yarah Bravo, to name a few. She has also graced the stages of notable venues such as BB Kings, Joe's Pub, SOB's and BAM Cafe among many others.

While currently touring in Europe, Miz Metro is also completing an EP with platinum producer Keith Shocklee from BOMB SQUAD of Public Enemy. She is also currently writing with platinum producer Red Spyda who remixed her next single off of UNLIMITED "Love is A Show" to be released mid summer. Through her UNLIMITED mobile media web show and weekly segment on the "Bloom Blog" (http://www.thebloomeffect.com/blog/) Miz Metro has created a platform for original thinking artists who don't fit in a box to be seen and heard. She is a conductor, a conduit and a community builder. Miz Metro is the future, and there is no turning back.
