Listen to this beautiful Soul, MILCK (learn more about I Can’t Keep Quiet or contact Laura@redbootpr.com), share her voice in words and song with courage and authenticity. I had goose bumps when she sang ‘Quiet’.
See a clip of MILCK at the 2017 Women’s March on Washington.
MILCK is a Los Angeles-based vocalist, keyboardist, and songwriter finds comfort in discomfort; her songwriting and vocal style thrives on that carnal desire to win the battle against the darkness that threatens to oppress.
For a while, MILCK (born Connie Lim) tried out the societal lifestyle of “should’s.” She should be pretty, thin, and quiet until called upon. She was surprisingly good at playing the roles, from being elected homecoming queen to ASB president. Behind closed doors, though, she was drowning in an abusive relationship, battling depression and anorexia.
Songwriting and singing were her only ways of releasing her true voice, as she had never learned how to use it in her day to day, so she explored the music industry in Los Angeles. Eventually though, she became burnt out on catering to pop, stifling producers, and reality television singing contests, and stopped everything to focus on reclaiming her authentic voice, both in real life and music.
That’s when MILCK was created. A stage name that includes her real last name, LIM, spelled backwards, followed by her first two initials, CK. After years of being trapped by the cyclic habit of pleasing others and hiding her pain, she wanted to literally and figuratively turn herself inside out.
