'Oh My My (What A Life)' is the beginning of my journey where I am starting to truly believe that despite my past, I too am enough, and I too can have a life filled with joy."
MILCK - who has spent much of the past year on tour, including dates supporting like-minded artists as Ani DiFranco, Amy Shark and her multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning Atlantic Records labelmate, Jason Mraz - will celebrate "Oh My My (What A Life)" with a wide range of live dates to be announced soon.

Recently named to NBC's "Asian America Presents: A to Z" list of emerging voices and breakout stars of the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, MILCK will perform at the annual ACLU Conferencetaking place in Washington, DC this Monday, June 11th. In addition, MILCK was recently honored by her hometown with the hanging of her portrait, alongside 12 other Asian American women, at Los Angeles City Hall as part of the city's ASAHM celebrations.
"Oh My My (What A Life)" follows the January release of MILCK's acclaimed debut EP, "THIS IS NOT THE END," highlighted by her breakthrough single, "Quiet." The EP received extensive critical acclaim upon its arrival, with NPR writing, "Artists of every genre have sparked conversations about women's liberation, political resistance and reclamation of power in their music during the past year. With 'THIS IS NOT THE END,' MILCK joins the chorus of uplifted voices, adding anthemic ballads to a growing list of modern protest songs." OUT went onto say of the EP, "the woman born Connie Lim has cemented her status as one of music's most important voices for the women's movement."
In 2017, "Quiet" became widely known as the unofficial anthem of the Women's March movement, after MILCK teamed up with two dozen female singers to perform acapella flash mobs of the song on the streets in Washington, DC. A video of the last flash mob was captured by award-winning director Alma Har'el and quickly went viral, drawing over 14 million plays in just two days. "Quiet" has proved MILCK's worldwide breakthrough, a cathartic pop anthem for people of all races, creeds, and colors who have suffered and survived in the face of trauma, trial, and tribulation. MILCK released a new studio recording of "Quiet," in November as her "musical #METOO" in light of the massive movement of women and survivors speaking out against sexual assault. On EP release day, the LA-based artist performed a tear-jerking piano-only version of her viral anthem "Quiet" on The Today Show (watch here) and went on to headline this year's Women's Women's March on NYC alongside powerful women Yoko Ono, Halsey and Whoopi Goldberg.
