ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Miki Huber spent her early years growing up on a goat and honey bee farm in the Mojave Desert in California, where she played her dad's guitar and wrote songs about the sun and the moon, lonely boys, and estranged mythical creatures lost in the woods. Raised by a Japanese mother from a legendary Samurai family and an eccentric American father, she found herself moving from the desert to the Nez Perce lake lands of North Idaho and later, running off to live in New Zealand, France, and New York City (her current abode).

Largely based on unusually subtle songwriting and swelteringly melancholic performances, Miki has become a favorite of the East/West Village and Williamsburg antifolk and independent music scenes. "A simultaneously mysterious and down to earth songwriter, Miki mixes a certain folk delicacy with punk undertones. Miki's music shines very brightly" (JezebelMusic.com). Her music has been likened to Mirah, Cat Power, and Suzanne Vega, and her songs have been described as haunting and whimsical...sometimes reminiscent of European and Japanese folk melodies and French retro pop.

Among her influences are Elliot Smith, Badly Drawn Boy, Kate Bush, The Innocence Mission, Suzanne Vega, Rickie Lee Jones, XTC, Bjork, Eric Satie, Francoise Hardy, Jung, and film director, Ingmar Bergman. Miki is inspired by any art which "captures the soul" because "that's where there's music".

She has recorded with other artists, such as Amiel and Minster Hill, and her cover of Martin Newell's "I Will Haunt Your Room" was featured on the tribute CD, ReNewell (2000). She has also been a traveling member of the Black Moon Theatre Co., a Middle Eastern dance performer, and a Creative Learning Therapist for kids with learning disabilities.
