Miko Marks is making her mark with the release of “Long Journey Home” out now! “Long Journey Home” was first recorded by The Monroe Brothers in 1936. About the journey of life, she relates to the challenges painted by the lyrics in the song and hopes others will be comforted by them too. Her powerful vocals and Bluegrass roots bring a lighthearted feel to this classic tune. It is also the perfect gateway for her upcoming five song EP to be released this fall.
When she’s not singing Miko is roller skating, a new hobby she picked up during the pandemic. Skating is therapeutic, “you could be in the worst mood, put those skates on and fly.” Miko is also encouraged by the unity she is seeing by people of color in the Nashville scene. Miko starred on Rissi Palmer’s Apple Music show “Color Me Country” and is a huge advocate for inclusivity saying, “we will have our best music when everyone’s included.”
Now getting back into the grove of performing. Miko told us about her first performance back in over a year. “I did not know how much I missed performing. I had a rebirth on stage,” Miko recalls. “I gave it everything I had and didn’t realize how emotional it would be delivering these songs. It shook me.” She is set to perform at Americana Fest, the Lake Pacid Center for the Arts, and the Cain Park Evans Amphitheater in August.
