Her musical journey started as a child within a musical family. They were the quintessential bunch who would sing and play guitar around the campfire – everything from bluegrass to country to jazz to classic rock. For miralee that planted the seed that grew into a desire to learn to sing on a quality level. She began to take voice lessons as a teenager, and gained experience with many different genres including opera, folk and pop. She later began to sing with a choir and was exposed to beautiful music from the masters of many different periods. Throughout her teenage years, miralee was also influenced by her brother who began to experiment with making electronic music. This led her to discover acts who were melding electronic elements with singing. She fell in love with the likes of Bjork, Portishead, Massive Attack, Lamb, Tricky, The Sneaker Pimps and Morcheeba.
She went on to study music at University and graduated with a Bachelor of Music majoring in Composition.

She more recently began to study electronic music production which led her to want to make a release as a solo artist. She ran a successful Kickstarter campaign which allowed her get the EP professionally engineered, this how she met Darryl Swart. They took the basic electronic compositions, elaborated them and added keyboards and guitar.
The EP is now available for digital download and streaming on most major platforms.
