“By stripping the folk music she loves to its most basic form and interrogating it through the lens of her musical education, her influences, and her personal experiences, Mik is making music that has the ability to subvert the genre and speak to a lot of people who don’t traditionally see their experiences reflected in it.”- Pinnacle Magazine
Mik Sullivan is a queer folk singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles. Her first single "Past Life" off her debut album Girls I Met Online is an atmospheric folk meets indie-rock song that will leave you feeling like you caught a glimpse of your own ghost. This track was inspired by the up to 12-hour queer first dates Mik has been on where it feels like we've known each other forever and yet met only hours ago. An intense encounter that leaves one feeling both baffled and cosmic.
Girls I Met Online is Mik’s unfiltered experience of trying to cope with being a late bloomer lesbian entering the harsh world of adulthood and modern dating. This album is rich in sound and heart and goes through an exploration of fusing folk with dream pop, indie-rock, and jazz. This record was recorded over the course of the pandemic all across the map, including places such as her step-sister’s bedroom, Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. Produced and composed by talented newcomer Tanner Swinand and mixed by Kenny Gilmore (credits including Weyes Blood, Julia Holter, Soko). Girls I Met Online is expected to release at the beginning of 2023 and will have several singles on top of “Past Life” released leading up to its launch, stay tuned!
