Mitski on Indie Accent

Mitski

b. 1990 | ORIGIN: NEW YORK CITY

Mitski Miyawaki was born on September 27, 1990, in Japan to an American father and Japanese mother. She grew up surrounded by her father's Smithsonian folk recordings and mother's 1970s Japanese pop CDs. Because of her father's job, which she prefers to not disclose, she and her family moved frequently, living in thirteen countries, including Turkey, China, Malaysia and the Democratic Republic of Congo, before eventually settling in New York City.
She embarked on her musical career while studying at Purchase College's Conservatory of Music, during which she self-released her first two albums: Lush (2012), and Retired from Sad, New Career in Business (2013). After graduating, Mitski released in 2014 her critically acclaimed third studio album, Bury Me at Makeout Creek through Double Double Whammy. It was followed by Puberty 2 (2016) and Be the Cowboy (2018), released on Dead Oceans to further acclaim. (Wikipedia)
