Mieka Pauley

Mieka Pauley puts her guitar in the trunk of her car and does an average of 150 live shows a year criss-crossing the country. She follows her own vision for her music, and her soul/blues/rock/acoustic/alternative style has brought comparisons to Ben Harper, Cat Power, Neko Case, Patty Griffin, Martin Sexton and others. She came up listening to all of those artists, and also to Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Eva Cassidy, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill. She has traveled in several directions as well in her recordings and bands, defining her own personal sound and style, and this road has lead her to take the reins in her own hands and draw her own map from here forward. She is the winner of the first ever Starbucks Emerging Artist Award, the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase and the Rock Boat/BMI Song Contest. Mieka has performed over 700 club and college shows crisscrossing the country in the past four years including bills with Eric Clapton, Jason Mraz, Citizen Cope, Wyclef Jean, Black Eyed Peas, John Hiatt, Edwin McCain, Mindy Smith, John Legend, Tift Merrit and many others. Northeast Performer calls her "a version of Sarah McLachlan with a switchblade in her shoe," The Boston Globe "like Aretha in the husky vocal turns." SESAC writer and Cosmopolitan Diva winner, WACBIZ recently licensed "The Devils Got Your Secret" to the new Jane Fonda and Catherine Keenar film PEACE LOVE&MISUNDERSTANDING, directed by Academy winner Bruce Beresford.
