Atlantic Records singer/songwriter and artist fueled by social change, MILCK has released the empowering title track, “This Is Not The End,” from her eagerly awaited debut EP out January 19th.
On release day, MILCK will perform her viral anthem “Quiet,” on The Today Show. The new studio recording, which was released in November as MILCK’s “musical #METOO” – read MILCK’s touching letter to her fans HERE – and inspired by the song’s impact on the oppressed and survivors of all races, creeds, and colors around the globe since its initial release in January 2017, is available now at all DSPs. Watch the powerful companion video HERE. “Quiet” became widely known as the unofficial anthem of last year’s historic Women’s March On Washington and was recently featured as #1 on Billboard’s “The 20 Best Protest Songs of 2017” in addition to being included in NPR’s “Year In Music 2017” feature.
This year, MILCK will continue to play an active role in the all-important Women’s March Movement by partnering with the nonprofit organization, Women’s March Alliance, to perform “Quiet” at the Women’s March on New York City on Saturday, January 20th.
“Women’s March Alliance is thrilled to partner with MILCK at this year’s New York City Women’s March,” says Katherine Siemionko, Founder and President, Women’s March Alliance. “MILCK’s music speaks to every woman who has been silenced and inspires them to raise their voice. She is part of a chorus of powerful voices and organizations – like the Women’s March Alliance – leading a movement to achieve equality and justice for all…finally.”
This past fall, MILCK released a breathtaking new rendition of “Ooh Child,” recorded for the short film “Love Over Bias,” the newest installment of Worldwide Olympic Partner Procter & Gamble’s “Thank You, Mom” campaign. Listen to “Ooh Child” – also to be featured on her forthcoming EP – HERE and watch MILCK’s powerful performance video HERE.
Born Connie Lim, MILCK has spent much of the last decade crafting a series of acclaimed independent releases while tirelessly performing increasingly 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 created the #ICANTKEEPQUIET Choir of DC, a 25 member group of diverse female vocalists. Together they united to deliver seven a capella flash mobs, surprising fellow marchers throughout the day with remarkably soulful renditions of “Quiet.” A video of the flashmobs was captured by the award-winning director Alma Har’el and quickly went viral after being posted on her Facebook page, drawing over 14 million plays in just two days. By week’s end, MILCK had appeared on TBS’s Full Frontal With Samantha Bee – performing alongside the GW Sirens and Capitol Blend – while also earning massive media attention from the Washington Post, NPR, Refinery29, BuzzFeed, AP, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, and many more. MILCK has spent the past several months performing and giving keynote speeches at major events for various organizations including the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Women In The World, Women Moving Millions, and more.
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’s LA Weekly, alongside a beautiful profile feature. Widely acclaimed for her distinctive blend of 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. “Quiet” was also featured during a pivotal scene centered on sexual assault in this past summer’s highly rated season finale of Freeform’s critically acclaimed series, The Bold Type. In addition, MILCK starred in a popular installment of KCET’s original music series, Artbound Presents Studio A. The complete episode is streaming now via KCET.
