or learn a little more about us?

Millaze’s piano-songwriting authors life within an ink-sketched, reality-amalgamate, dream world inside her mind - a world named Oakland. Her self-produced alt-pop/alternative pop music injects eclectic energy into the traditions of piano/singer-songwriting and lyricism through surprising and bass-dropping elements inspired by pop punk, emo, EDM, and foley.

A poster child for the universal paradox of everyone living many different archetypes of characters internally in "the world inside your mind", Millaze throws real-life problems, fears, and highs into Oakland for her characters to go through instead of herself, so she can curiously examine and process the situations. This "parts work" sublimation turns the pages of a deconstructed-book album series she calls “The Dialectic.”

would you like to see what others are saying about us?

"But while aspects of her work draw parallels with distinguished artists such as the likes of Mitski and Julien Baker, Millaze’s exemplary levels of creativity ensure ‘Front Matter’ is not only inspired by, but also lies on par with some of the genre’s most notable projects."

"In addition to piano streams and art pop works, Millaze also perfectly operates intricate experimentalism."

"Vocal style seems to be a thing of the past far too often, and it’s incredible to hear someone that combines talent with style."

"In the same way that Björk and Kate Bush ran with their avant-garde authenticity, the Oakland-hailing singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is making strides in her own direction. ...With song titles as endearing as Courtney Barnett’s, her unapologetic candour and frankly alchemic melodies, the aural world is at Millaze’s feet. If the Billboard charts were based on ingenuity and distinction alone, we have no doubt that Millaze would be riding high at the top."
