If there’s one thing Miss Myi knows how to do its make music and dance! Starting out at 5 years old making dance routines in her mothers kitchen, she quickly gained a major love for everything music related.
She started formal dance training at the age of 12, then quickly began to advance and progress in her passion, and in four short years she began her professional career as a dancer for the Walt Disney Company. She spent 2 years traveling with the company, growing as a dancer while she attended University of Houston.
During the following years, Miss Myi began to dance as a professional cheerleader for the Houston Aeros.Teaching herself to read sheet music and later learning to play 5 instruments, it was always a dream of hers to combine her love of music and dance, and create the music that would make the whole world dance with her. Over the years she has worked with important companies including Disney, Sony, and IMG.
Now 23 year old Model/Actress/Dancer Miss Myi is finding her place in the music industry. Her life is filled with fashion shows, television shoots, conference calls, concept meetings, studio sessions, star studded events and is everything but ordinary.
She is currently preparing herself for a very busy spring, as she gears up for the release of “Fearless” — which plans to be a fun, energetic collection of music that gets everyone off the wall and on the dance floor. Her debut EP wants to showcase her love for a good time, catchy irresistible words, and amazing songwriting talent.
We sounded out some Miss Myi’s tracks, off her debut EP, “Fearless” including her single “All Eyes On Us” which is currently available for download on iTunes.
“All Eyes On Us” displays Miss Myi’s sassy attitude and feisty lyrics in a relentlessly mechanical dance chant masquerading as a sweet pop song. Her clear perky vocal performance, is accompanied by a series of choral syllables, digitally stitched together to get that catchy Billboard Top100 echo effect…and everybody singing along.
Miss Myi keeps her performance both bubbly and bouncy throughout the EP. Jumping the sexy-girlie sound bandwagon, between Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Ke$ha.
We particularly liked the club-banging, hard, chilly synth sound of “I Work”, where Miss Myi displays a wider vocal range and grittier delivery.
“Siren” digs in with the rhythmic hand claps, fat synthesizers and kicking drumbeat, while Miss Myi lays her sexy lyrical rhymes on the line. And it goes something like this…
“I will make it hot , make you lose control
make you go all out, make you want for more
I will make it hot ’till you just can’t sleep
’till I’m in your dreams, ’till it’s me you adore…”
While Miss Myi heats up the room with her pressure-cooker vocals, you’ll be sliding all over the dance floor with this one.
There are no ads, please add some
“Awaken” is as tender as a sweet little Texas girl can be. This is the classic down-tempo heartbreaker that any R&B album cannot be without. Antares and some clever production on the backing vocals lends some endearing touches to the song.
“Control” takes us back onto the dance floor. Driven by a wall of layered strings and a brisk hiphop backbeat, Miss Myi delivers her breathless vocal intonations incessantly across the track. Almost non-stop, with a flurry of rhyming hooks.
“Fearless” once again borrows the strong piano and string theme successfully used on the previous track, to drive it’s bottom end. Here Miss Myi shifts her vocals into overdrive as she deals with more serious overtones. Delectable traces of early Mary J Blige hover hypnotically in and around this track. Definitely one of my favorites.
Clearly Miss Myi is just starting out in the music business and still needs to walk all of it’s difficult tightropes and ever-present delusions.
But we gathered from various interviews and snippets of video, we managed to lay our hands on, that this feisty lady is all fired up and ready to run the musical gauntlet. Whatever it takes.
Considering that Rihanna signed her first major contract with Def Jam Recordings at the tender age 17, and now at only 24, she is already the highest-selling digital artist in US history, having sold 47,571,000 singles as of 2012.
Add that to the more than 25 million albums and 60 million singles sold worldwide and you can only begin to understand why young stars like Miss Myi should never stop working on that dream to be a star.
Success could be just around the corner.
