PREMIERE: LOUIZA – “Leash On A Tiger”


LOUIZA is the project of Oakland-based musician Rebecca Mimiaga. After graduating from the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City with a BFA in vocal performance, she began gigging as a Jazz singer and solo folk artist. In 2014, she teamed up with orchestrator/producer Maxim Moston to record Words in the Dark – contemplative songs for voice and piano paired with orchestral instruments. In the same year, she founded LOUIZA and then moved to Oakland in 2015. This year we got the new song, “Party Trick”, from LOUIZA, and the project is currently at work on a full-length album. Today, we’re sharing a new LOUIZA track, “Leash On A Tiger”, which recalls the wild style of Tune-Yards. Listen to “Leash On A Tiger” via our premiere below.

Upcoming Dates:
