She is a talented and eclectic artist with an experimental flare. Citing the inspiration of artists from across the spectrum of pop and r&b music, she has created a distinct and soulful indie vibe.

“Why Can’t You Love Me Like That?” is the brand new song from MiRato, released worldwide via all major streaming services on December 28, 2022. Orchestral strings introduce the track.
