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.
Poster child for the universal paradox of living many different characters in the "world inside your mind", Millaze throws her problems, fears, and highs into Oakland so her characters can go through them instead of herself.
This interpretation of the therapy strategy called "parts work" guides Millaze towards healing the parts of her she left behind in heartbreak, because through her songs she can curiously examine and process the situations with the goals of living vicariously, trusting imagination, and finding satisfaction.
Her Mister-Rogers-inspired sublimation turns the pages of a deconstructed-book album series she calls “The Dialectic", referencing the most important conversation in everyone’s head: accepting life’s grey area through the phenomenon of oppositions being true at the same time.
