Miel de Botton is back on the music scene with the second single from her debut album, this time releasing 'Magnetic' to the masses officially on August 14.
Born in Switzerland, Miel's childhood was idyllic, growing up by a lake in Zurich and singing French chansons with her father.
"The songs transported me to an era of wild romance. I could feel the intensity of love, but also its tragic inconstancy, and I wanted to abandon myself to that music", she recalls of the time.
Talking about the new single, Miel says: "The song 'Magnetic' is incredibly important to me as it symbolises my heartfelt feelings on how the world works, that we can truly attract the life we want if we are open, dare to dream and send out the thoughts and wishes one desires, to then in turn manifest them into our reality."
As a mother and two and former psychologist, Miel is continuing to prove that it's never too late to follow your dreams, embarking on a career in the industry which has already seen her perform at the Aldwych Theatre and the Southbank Centre's Purcell Room.
Going on to then join John Barrowman on his national UK tour of latest album 'You Raise Me Up', she played a string of shows including one memorable date at the London Palladium. Her chemistry with the star was established from night one, when John told the audience: "Miel is looking after your heart and soul and I will look after all the other body parts!"
Now following the single's release, Miel will be taking her sound to Soho in the autumn, performing tracks in both English and French with a date on October 19 at the Jazz Club Soho on Dean Street.
Welsh baritone Rhydian Roberts will then have her supporting him on eight dates of his tour later in the year.
