Mimoza H is an instinctual and autodidact singer/songwriter and music-maker originally from Kosovo currently based in Montreal. Her music has been described as “unique, intense and mysterious”. Her artistic approach (often compared to that of Björk, Wildbirds and Peacedrums, PJ Harvey, and Portishead), embodies an introspective journey of stories woven from her imagination and personal tumultuous life experiences influenced by the hardships of the constant moving.
These 'stories' convey a raw emotion enveloped by a wide sonic spectrum of organic sounds and subtle electronic beats. At times sharp and eclectic, her music is a timeless music experience fusing the reminiscent past with a breeze of an avant-garde.
In September 2016, Mimoza H released her debut EP titled ‘Uproot’ to some great audience reaction and music reviews in Canada, Quebec and Eastern Europe granting her “Artist to Watch” remarks by CBC Canada Premiere. It took two continents, three countries, a war and a tumultuous post-war era to have come to the realization of this debut project. In her words "I feel like I've lived three lives thus far". Since the debut EP, she has released two singles “Well of Melodies” and “Winterlude” as she continues working on new songs that will be released throughout the year including a second EP aiming for a release later this year.
She draws tastes and influences from the likes of Dead Can Dance, Kate Bush, Björk, Fever Ray, Roisin Murphy, PJ Harvey, Lhasa de Sela, Nick Cave, Ana Calvi, Portishead, The Cure, Chinawoman, Bowie, Jeff Buckley, Goldfrapp, Lamb, Mary Margaret O'Hara, as well as Southern Albanian music.
The debut UPROOT includes six songs created in collaboration with incredibly talented musicians who helped bring these pieces into complete and cohesive compositions: Charles F. Huot, François Cloutier, Jonathan Cayer, Mathias Schneeberger, les Frères Grand, Joss Tellier, Samuel Joly, Brigitte Briga Dajczer, Pierre-Alexandre Bouchard, Frederic Boivin, Mario Sévigny, Louis D.
Debut record produced by Mimoza H and Stephane Lapointe.
UPROOT is out now on iTunes, Amazon and Bandcamp, and streaming on Spotify.
