Mieke - Sleeping Alone

Toronto-based singer/songwriter and model Elissa Mielke, otherwise known as simply Mieke has today unveiled her new single entitled "Sleeping Alone", which serves as the lead single to be taken from her forthcoming self-titled EP scheduled for release on August 28th.

Mieke says:

"I've been in problematic situations with producers and major labels over the last few years; either people tried to take the project in direction that felt artificial, or I had to sign on for a career without creative involvement. I needed to make something honest and raw. Something strange and vulnerable. Something thoughtful and free. Something that was authentic to where I'm at. For this EP I worked with Don Kerr and Howie Beck (Feist, Hayden, Bahamas), people I trust. Don records out of his house so we did the vocals in his dining room and the instruments in his basement. That let me fully connect with the feeling I had wherever I wrote the songs- in Toronto, in Tokyo, in my small town high school, or in London- and to go back to that moment"
