“Impatient Girl”, singer/songwriter, Actress, Producer, Director Milandra brings a rock, pop, soul feel to her music. Persuading her parents to invest in dance and performance lessons from the very young age of 3 helped forge her dance and singing skills.
Sean Goddard-Chase describes her voice as: “A paradoxical quality of jazz-like throatiness with the sweet air of innocence. An energy of youth.”
After going through some struggles with an ex-boyfriend who bullied and taunted her and shattered her confidence in her vocal ability. This caused her to shy away from singing as well as her friends and family. After ending the toxic relationship she finally found her voice again with the love, support and encouragement from her best friend, she begun concentrating her efforts on her music once again.
Milandra started networking with business minded people and begun managing herself and doing her own PR.
Milandra has collaborated with amazing artists like Kamanu (very soulful deep voiced vocalist with a velvety Barry White tone who creates truthful connections with his lyrics) and talented LA Rapper Madd Felon.
Full Valve Entertainment have continued to book Milandra, stating: “Milandra is an amazing act that turns heads whenever she performs live. An amazing voice backed by a brilliant band sure to get any crowd off their seat and start dancing. She is absolutely loved & adored by the Limelight crowd.”
Venue’s Milandra has performed at are The Royal Melbourne Hotel, Manchester Lane, The Blue Tile Lounge, Alamanda Cafe, The Cornish Arms Hotel, Mr. Pockets, St. Mary’s Primary School and Concord School to raise money for Breast Cancer. Also performing at The Evelyn Hotel supporting Pludo with Third Verse Entertainment, not to mention the odd local sports club and never missing a chance to perform for her family and friends at any appropriate event.
Trained by the strong vocal pop/rock singer Lisa Asta, the beautiful Kate Ceberano’s vocal coach Glenda Walsh and spiritually trained and connected to her crafty voice with her mentor Lindsay Fields.
She is most likely playing with her vocals by singing anything that comes to mind and whistling notes around the house. Accidentally coming up with hooks for her songs by singing out loud as she observes life going on around her.
Milandra noted that learning about the biology of the human anatomy in her day job provided her with a great insight to the body as an instrument to life, giving her an in-depth understanding of the unique qualities required to use her voice as an instrument. She played with her vocals training herself to sound natural, interesting and unique.
“My Pornography music video is surely going to turn heads and possibly make you feel uncomfortable while leaving you wanting more.” giggles Milandra.
Her current EP "Disloyal Proximal Phalanges" is very catchy with song 'Impatient Girl' which has a feel-good sound with a 60’s influence along with her jazzy soul pop songs: Sleepless Nights, Moment, Leaving, Pornography and Without Me which is a latin/reggae sounding song.
Milandra is currently seeking new representation after finishing her acting studies at the Victorian College of the Arts in Victoria, working the scenes with Screen Acting Melbourne with Director & Producer Rohan Jones, now studying also with Australian Actress Simone Buchanan with Film & TV Studio International and Editing her music video 'Moment' out she has featured as lead in 2 short films. She is described as a driven professional who is very honest, loving, grounded, earthy, red head who is sometime brunette, with a fiery nature who has a warm, infectious and colourful personality. You can catch her in her hippy skirts, beaded necklaces surrounded by a cloud of incense hanging with her man and her fury babies. She hopes you enjoy her music and work as much as she enjoyed making it.
