Hey everyone! I’m very excited to exclusively premiere a brand-new track from a rising star on the music scene. You might already know Midian from her track “Bitter” (check out a stirring live performance of the song below) which was featured on one of my favorite (guilty pleasure) reality shows, VH1′s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Following the success of that single, she’s releasing a five-track EP (available for pre-order now) on January 8th, which includes the track “Love Me Now,” which you can listen to below. I was immediately taken by her incredibly soulful voice, which definitely has a smooth Motown vibe, I instantly became a fan! I get so many music pitches, yet I only bring you the cream of the crop here, and Midian is definitely someone to keep your eyes (and ears) on!
Midian never believed her mother. It’s just what mom’s do, she thought: tell their daughter they have the voice of an angel. On occasion, as a girl growing up outside the nation’s capital, Midian would escape to her room and let her voice run free; she’d imagine she was Michael Jackson one day, Aretha Franklin the next. But it was just for fun; after all, she had convinced herself she wasn’t a singer. So imagine her reaction then, when as a teenager in a recording studio she upstaged a professionally-trained friend, laying down vocals so refined it left her peer speechless. “I was like ‘Holy shit!’ I can do this!” the now 24-year-old recalls of the epiphany upon hearing her voice piping through the studio speakers. As it turns out, Midian was in fact a singer; she’d always been one. Now, only a few years later, and thanks to the success of her breakout single, “Bitter”, a breathtaking display of vocal prowess and emotional maturity, she finds herself one of the most promising new voices in the music industry.
