Since the release of singles ‘Preacher Man’, 'Girl' and 'Heaven Knows', Mica has been capturing the hearts and minds of fans and critics alike - with radio support from BBC Radio 2’s Trevor Nelson, BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and Craig Charles, plus Jazz FM playlist support, features across BBC London and BBC Manchester and glowing reviews from the likes of Echoes Magazine, Soul Tracks, Music News, LOCK Magazine and many more.
Self-written and produced, 'Heaven Knows' is a timeless collection of modern soul songs showcasing a confident new artist who’s not only found her own voice but one that has put all of life's challenges and triumphs into her art. The highly anticipated debut explores themes of human nature, spirituality, love, oppression, inequality and empowerment, drawing inspiration from a plethora of vintage soundscapes, most notably soul, blues, gospel and jazz. Respectful nods are paid to girl groups of the 60's and 70's and classic Motown giving her songs a timeless quality that is both reassuringly familiar yet distinctively Mica Millar.
