Mikaela’s unconventional path the working songwriter began before high school, growing up in Rochester. With plans to join a symphony, she studied harp performance at Crane School of Music, but halfway through, she decided the traditional harpist’s path wasn’t for her. Following graduation, Mikaela moved to Brooklyn, following in the footsteps of artists who’ve come before her. But in the city, she could never quite find her footing. She kept busy, toured, and recorded an album that would eventually be shelved. Feeling confused and alone, she retreated back to Rochester, unsure of her next move. Rochester’s artistic community embraced her, encouraged by bandmates including Alex Cote and the group Joywave, she hit her stride. Rochester became Mikaela’s sanctuary. Mikaela now tours her latest album across the world.
