Manchester's Mica Millar released her debut album "Heaven Knows" on 10th June 2022. She is holding two album launch events where she will be performing the album with an eight-piece band. The first will be held at London's Jazz Cafe on 17th Sep 2022 with a second the following week at Albert Hall, Manchester on 25th Sep 2022.

UPDATE: It has just been announced that Acantha Lang will be supporting Mica at the Jazz Cafe event on 17 Sep 2022

Tickets are available HERE 

Mica's distinct vision is one that has earned her renowned credibility within the industry and it's her creativity, drive and attention to detail that has made "Heaven Knows" the album it is - a timeless collection of modern soul showcasing a confident new artist, quickly establishing herself as a new and unique voice in British Soul music.

The album is self-written and produced and independently released on Mica's own Golden Hour Music label. It explores a variety of themes drawing inspiration from a plethora of vintage soundscapes, most notably soul, blues, gospel and jazz. Respectful nods are paid to girl groups of the 60s and 70s and classic Motown, giving her songs a timeless quality that is both reassuringly familiar yet distinctively Mica Millar.

Mica has been capturing the hearts and minds of fans and critics alike being featured on the front cover of the iconic Blues & Soul Magazine last month who credited her as "a star with intense emotional sincerity" and also received 5 stars from Echoes Magazine for "soul album of the month" and an inclusion in their "Best Soul Albums of 2022" list. She also of course received an 8.6 rating here and was SoulStrutter Selection of the Week for week 23, two tracks were featured in The Dirty Dozen the same week and the album is also featured in the "2022 Albums of the Year ... so far" for the first half of 2022.

The album amassed over half a million streams within a month of its release, being supported by national radio from the likes of BBC Radio 2's Trevor Nelson, BBC Radio 4's Clive Anderson with lead single "Preacher Man" being championed by BBC 6 Music's Craig Charles and Tom Robinson, the title track by BBC Radio 1's Victoria Jane and "Flashlights" on BBC Radio 2's Good Morning Sunday as well as a TV appearances and a host of regional interviews and live sessions on BBC London, Manchester, Scotland and many more. The album was also Jazz FM's "Album of The Week" with "Flashlights" being put onto the A List.

Another single from the album will be released on Friday (26 Aug) which was the SoulStrutter choice cut from the album "More Than You Give Me" with an accompanying video, so watch out for that on Friday.

Not only is Mica featured on the cover on the latest issue (1058) of Blues & Soul but also the August 2022 issue of Echoes.
