NEW ARTIST: MIA RODRIGUEZ
Australian pop music singer-songwriter Mia Rodriguez achieved success via Tiktok as it has become the modern-day music-industry complex. The app has become so very interwoven with the marketing of artists. Hailing from Sydney, Australia, Mia Rodriguez started by posting covers and other content on TikTok in May 2018. Within a few months of sharing her first video, the teenager had racked up over 2 million followers. Scrolling through Mia’s earliest content, it is easy to see why the 18-year-old connected so quickly and so readily with her young audience. Mixing gothic e-girl aesthetics with a voice as soft and soothing as angels.
The young artist signed with the teams at Chugg Music and City Pop Records after catching the attention of Australian entrepreneur, businessman, and music-industry veteran Michale Chugg. Her debut single, “Emotion,” followed soon after. Bringing together Mia’s sugar-sweet dulcet tones with a foundation-shaking bassline and backing screams, “Emotion” was a hit, with the song reaching over 2 million streams on Spotify alone. In April 2020, she released her second single, “Psycho.” and taking advantage of her deep, dark, twisted sense of humour with a bassline that goes harder than most dubstep or EDM bangers. Mia Rodriguez is undoubtedly on her way to superstar stardom, from style to sound; the Australian act is the full package. It is only a matter of time until Mia’s goth-pop goodness is making its presence known throughout the rest of the world.
