Mika Mamon

April 12, 2021

Mika Mamon is an award-winning UK singer-songwriter, originally from the Philippines, now living in Saltburn on the North Yorkshire coast.

Her latest single, featuring the amazing hip-hop artist and rapper, SAYIBOY is available on youtube and all major streaming services.

Her previous single, Holiday Romance, an 80's-inspired dance-pop banger was released on all streaming services in September 2020.

Her first single Stand Together Apart is also available on all streaming services. The track is about her direct experiences working during the pandemic as a frontline COVID-19 ITU nurse. Uplifting, powerful and troubling at the same time, it paints a picture of heartache and hope, recorded with the support of musicians and a virtual choir of people across the globe who recorded themselves singing the refrain, "Hold on, stand together apart".

She is supported by her duo partner Daniel Hunt who co-writes tracks and plays many of the instruments.

Her tracks (including the singles Never Give Up, Stand Together Apart and Holiday Romance) are produced by Daniel Hunt and Carl Pemberton (CPMR Recording Studio), who many will remember from the chart-topping duo; Journey South.

She is currently working on a range of singles and an album to be released with Slider Records later in 2020-21. Tracks range from 80's-inspired dance music to soft ballads with some modern indie-pop in the mix. Check out her social media sites for new releases!

Mika was born in Mindanao, spending her early childhood years in Cebu city, and grew up in Iloilo city with her musical family. Her father, a military officer, loved to sing swing and rock n roll songs, her mother, an accountant, was a classical pianist and her brothers were a bassist and a drummer in local bands. Her love of singing and performing was influenced by her brother's New Wave music, boosted by her time as a DJ for Kiss FM, singing ballads in her bedroom and on the local karaoke scene. Songwriting stems from her early poetry compositions in school, continuing with various acoustic duo partnerships, learning guitar and piano along the way.

Mika, who graduated with a degree in nursing at West Visayas State University, moved to the UK in 2005 as a qualified nurse, working in nursing care home management before joining the NHS where she currently works at James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

With Daniel, she has also started a radio show; The Punk and the Princess, broadcast across the world on over thirty radio stations and is available as a podcast at www.linktr.ee/punkandprincess.
