Canadian songwriter and visual artist Mimi Oz has been writing and performing her original works since 2011. Her debut album Three of Swords was produced and co-written by Canadian songwriter-come-professor/author Bob Wiseman. In 2015 Oz released her self-produced sophomore album, Men Who Never Loved Me, which was funded by the Ontario Arts Council (OAC). She toured the album in Canada, the USA and Europe.
Oz’s work often revolves around intertwined themes of love and politics. A jazz-influenced folk songwriter, her songs channel ’50s and ’60s pop, gospel, soul, rock ’n’ roll and punk; with a tendency towards dramatic mid-song twists and turns.
She is currently wrapping up her third solo recording, Growing Pains, a self-produced seven-song masterpiece recorded in Toronto and NYC and mixed by Grammy-winning engineer L. Stu Young.
