Already creating wave Manchester soul singer, Mica Millar, releases her new single  ‘Preacher Man’. This is very good – a startling mixture of vintage warmth and modern rhythms and sounds creating a 21st-century hybrid that will be owning the charts. Her iconic style and perfect hair make a shoe-in for pop’s catwalk but it’s that voice and the sounds that will deliver.

Hot on the heels of her latest single ‘Preacher Man’ which has received strong reactions, UK soul newcomer Mica Millar & production pioneer, Zed Bias, deliver a remix blending reggaeton, dembow and soul showcasing Mica’s sultry, spiritual single under a new light. 


With Zeb Bias’s previous remix catalogue including the likes of The Streets and Gabrielle, his swinging, genre-blending treatment of “Preacher Man” and its effervescent hooks provide the perfect alternative soundscape for the spirited new single.


‘Preacher Man’ is lifted from Mica’s forthcoming self-written, arranged and produced debut album ‘Heaven Knows, which draws inspiration from a plethora of vintage sounds, most notably soul, blues, gospel and jazz with respectful nods paid to girl groups of the 60’s and 70’s and classic Motown, giving her songs a timeless quality that is both reassuringly familiar yet distinctively hers.


The result is sublime; heartrending, understandable, and totally compelling. ‘Heaven Knows’ is a timeless collection of modern soul showcasing a confident new artist who has thrown everything into her art.
