MEET MILO STarr johnSON
Milo Starr Johnson is a San Francisco native singer/songwriter, who performs in an imaginative rock’n’roll cabaret style. For more than two decades, Milo worked in film, experimental theater, and comedy in Los Angeles. These experiences formed the basis of her rich artistic and musical vision.
Sophisticated and unapologetic in her approach, Milo pairs humor with cinematic production on her debut album, The Perambulator. She invites listeners on a genre bending sonic journey, drawing inspiration from influences as diverse as Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, The Cramps, and Roxy Music. Every song echoes of the 60’s and 70’s. Skillfully produced with It Thing’s Mark Zanandrea and award-winning sound engineer Matt Cohen, The Perambulator spins tales of homecoming and transformation.
