Get To Know Starry Night In The Garden Artist Milck!

Thursday, May 17th

So here’s what we found out in our chat with Milck:  She’s bright and happy, not “quiet” and all serious the way you would think from hearing a lot of her music.  She had a huge taste of snow touring over the winter, which reminded her she’s very much a “Cali” girl.  And it was amazing to hear how surreal it was to be in the middle of the viral happening that quiet has become!  Click, listen, then get your tickets to see Milck at Starry Night In The Garden here!

You reporting so that was really really special for me. Are you bringing acquire with fuel or do you want us to unsure if we yes we can get a couple of high school choirs on stage and up putting you on the spot now but if you want it to them we could find people to sing with the what do you think.

A year and a half ago now that's were really it it it started for you. More so like with these people the you're just meeting for the first time in they barely knew you and yet they took your song and needed an anthem what was that like. It could be in the middle. Viral moment is very Serb Leo and experience just because Islam that I released. To have to take on a whole other life becomes that this big. Big things for other people that I had never met 2 o'clock across the world you know and there are flash mobs of people things are my street then to Ghana. But do you really all over the world. I was completely lived in ninety app I would break. Be laughing and and crying constantly for days of illicit. I would give video after video message after my kitchen. And and still get messages from people now about how. The song changed so life and help them find their own relations back. I mean just the most beautiful thing I think every artist hopes to be able to treat that impact people's lives in a positive play. And so this is Carol says. Did perfect. Storm of all of that turned artist streams so calm yet it was incredible and it's still. Still is blooming in in different ways to contain that against teams now that are dancing to it so it's become a different form of expression and it's really really of anything actually Arab music it has an incredible is spreading all over the world went when it's true. On nothing more true and from the heart then quiet let's listen to it. And you'll look back up with a milk on the other side OnStar awarded 2.5. That is quiet we're visiting with milk OnStar what are 2.5 she was just telling us that how viral that song is banned in. You know look I just thinking of it here how. You may have written a song that even though it didn't reach number one. It may be affecting lives in people for ten years down the line if now longer more so than a lot of records who have hit number one. That's so nice to say yes things that's that's. All that means a lot yeah I think they're meaningful meaningful things to relate to motivate artists like me to just keep. Keep writing songs keep touring in the end and working hard to connect with more and more people. And when people asked about what else can we find out about Milken or music art and we say. Go to YouTube your version of who child that 1970 song from the five stair steps to. That that is how are you when did you do that wouldn't it please tell me you do that is starry night because hey everybody will know the song. And beads of venue was perfect for a song like that. I would that's sounds magical out to policing that stopped aid did the cover. I'm a year ago and am I started recording it and then I got asked to complete the version for our this commercial for the Procter & Gamble. Commercial for the Olympics and so it it was odd man commercial honoring mothers. And it's playing like. Olympics season. And I I really just wanted to take this song and and really make it into my own battles so. Also keep the integrity of the sunken it's such a classic you know. It's such a great song you know it's so simple but. It it definitely has some very cool little musical. Twist and turns out is that typical of the song so I think it's as great ones. And I am honored that it it was used for different commercials and stuff but ultimately I love performing at lives that's. It's happening via their cellphones go you know.
