Miki Huber (aka "Lilamayi") spent her early years growing up on a goat and honey bee farm in the Mojave Desert in California, where she played her dad's guitar and wrote songs about the sun and the moon, lonely boys, and estranged mythical creatures lost in the woods. Her influences are as eclectic as her background: raised by a Japanese mother from a legendary Samurai family and an eccentric American father, she found herself moving from the desert to the Nez Perce lake lands of North Idaho and later, running off to live in New Zealand, France, New York City, and Los Angeles. Lilamayi's brand of intuitive folk is at once whimsical and profound... sometimes reminiscent of European or Japanese folk melodies, Sufi poetry, or French retro-pop.
