Mizan (whose last name — or first name? — I couldn’t find on the web) was born in Chicago and raised in Ethiopia and New York. I could find very little else about her online, apart from the fact that her debut EP was released on Nov. 6.
A couple of other tracks confirm the Fiona Apple comparison. Her spare instrumentation, favoring the piano, and her emotive vocals suggest a definite influence by my favorite chanteuse.
That’s definitely a good thing.
