13-09-2017 12:00:00 13-09-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York Milck | 9:00 PM After a decade of quiet independent releases and tireless gigs around her native Los Angeles, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and poet MILCK confidently carried a generational anthem in the form of "Quiet." Originally penned in 2015 with frequent collaborator Adrianne Gonzalez, the song provided a clarion call for people of all races, creeds, and colors who have suffered and survived gallantly in the face of trauma, trials, and tribulations with resounding piano chords and shuddering, soulful delivery. "It's unbelievable to think now, but I was initially told to hold the song," she recalls. "I couldn't keep compromising anymore though. It's my story as a survivor of abuse. I was finally letting myself out of the chains. Recording 'Quiet' was a very genuine moment of therapy for me. It's very real. I thought if the honesty healed me, maybe it can heal someone else? After the election, I said, 'Fuck you' and shared it." Hemingway wrote, "You are so brave and quiet I forget you are suffering." MILCK is quiet no more, and her honesty possesses the power to heal. "I'd rather express than impress," she leaves off. "When people listen to me, I want them to feel empowered. I want a catharsis. My ideal situation as an artist is to harness my voice so it becomes like the purest form of water. When I sing in a room, I want to wash people and the walls of all the pain and shit they deal with. I come from a family of doctors. Doctors are healers. I want to be a sonic healer." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=244410 Rough Trade NYC Rough Trade NYC
