Whether it’s with a full band in tow or a solo intimate set, Miloux has been constantly lauded for her vocal virtuosity, layered synthesiser instrumentation, and her passion for experimentation within the live and recorded music sphere.
A truly incredible vocal talent, Miloux has spent the past three years honing her unique spin on beats-driven ambient electronica. Between days teaching pre-teens to find their own voice and nights wowing crowds around Auckland, Miloux is a rare artist that wows every person she performs to.
After years singing in choirs and training in jazz, Rebecca Melrose began work as Miloux, and began running her pop sensibilities and jazz training through an electronic filter. The result – an unpredictable mix of an incredible voice, and diverse and exciting instrumentation. She has also become a sort-after collaborator for Australasian producers, featuring on tracks from the likes of Chores, Benson and Terace, and gaining a strong following in the electronic realm.
2015 saw her represent New Zealand at the Shure Vocal Competition at the world-renowned Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. After only a few months 2016 has already seen Miloux release her debut video for ‘Pocket’, main-stage billing at this year’s Chronophonium festival, as well as an opening slot for a sold out show from Grammy-nominated James Bay. Her first release, EP 1, was produced by Ben Lawson, and recorded at Red Bull Studios Auckland.
For a country already so rich in female vocalists, Miloux is one which stands on her own away from the pack.
