Millagram: singer, songwriter, producer
Born and raised in Nova Scotia, and now residing in Montreal, Millagram is cut from Folk fabric and embroidered with Jazz. Her music is Electronic Soul rhythms with thoughtful R&B hooks, inspired by those who have come before her.
With music as the melody of her upbringing in rural Nova Scotia, Millagram, née Mary-Grace Koile, began performing in church as a child and has been spending significant time on stages ever since. Releasing her first solo album of original music at nineteen, she has gone on to participate in countless other projects while continuing to develop, compose and produce her own tracks. A lyricist by birthright, her songs are both deeply personal and poetic.
A 2016 release (her debut EP as Millagram, “Creative Destruction” with Toronto-producer No-Fauxs) enjoyed great reviews from the local Montreal scene with performances at places like Casa Del Popolo and radio interviews at CKUT. From intimate gatherings to big crowds, her energy and passion for music-making shines through and resonates soul deep. She is influenced by many Jazz vocal greats like Ella, Amy and Eva, but her originality takes precedence as she creates an auditory landscape for her listeners, taking them from deep grooves to balladic vistas, mixing an organic live instrument sound with tight vocals and electronic accents. Proudly heralding a new wave of Canadian pop singers with international appeal, Millagram is here to guide you into the future.
