Born Connie Lim, MILCK has spent much of the last decade crafting a series of acclaimed independent releases while tirelessly performing increasing well-attended gigs around her native Los Angeles. Penned in 2015 with frequent collaborator Adrianne Gonzalez, “Quiet” proved MILCK’s worldwide breakthrough, a cathartic pop anthem for people of all races, creeds, and colors who have suffered and survived in the face of trauma, trial, and tribulation.
In January 2017, MILCK traveled east to the momentous Women’s March On Washington where she teamed up with the #ICANTKEEPQUIET Choir of DC, a 25 member group of diverse female vocalists and activists. Together they united to deliver seven a capella street performances, surprising fellow marchers throughout the day with remarkably soulful renditions of “Quiet.” A fan video of the flash mob performances – streaming now at MILCK’s YouTube channel – quickly went viral, drawing over 15 million plays in just two days. By week’s end, MILCK had appeared on TBS’s Full Frontal With Samantha Bee – performing “Quiet” alongside the GW Sirens and Capitol Blend – while also earning massive media attention from theWashington Post, NPR, Refinery29, BuzzFeed, AP, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and many more. MILCK has spent the past months since speaking as well as performing “Quiet” and other powerful songs at other major events for various organizations including the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Women In The World and more.
Earlier this year, MILCK shared the news of her partnership with Atlantic Records directly with fans in a handwritten letter posted on her social media platforms. The letter, which explained her heartfelt decision, was shared wider in her hometown’sLA Weekly, alongside a beautiful profile feature. Widely acclaimed for her distinctive blend of classical, pop, and provocative, poetic lyricism, MILCK has drawn attention for tracks including “Devil Devil,” featured in an array of TV projects including FOX’s Lucifer and E!’s The Royals. MILCK is currently readying her much-anticipated Atlantic Records debut EP which is set for release early next year and will feature a new studio version of “Quiet” inspired by the impact the song has had on survivors around the globe.
