The Parlour with Mykia Jovan
Through this show Mykia will explore and expand on her original work, sharing personal stories through song each month.

Parlours are rooms where life and death are celebrated and honored. Rooms where engagements are announced, wakes are held, musical recitals performed. A place for family and friends to gather alike, to honor life’s most significant moments. They are sacred spaces.

Mykia Jovan is a vocalist and songwriter from New Orleans, Louisiana. Her distinctive voice often draws comparison to the great Billie Holiday and Erykah Badu, while her original compositions and live performance have established her as a singular voice in the modern progressive soul scene. Mykia was nominated for the 2017 Best Emerging Artist in New Orleans, her debut album named a Top 50 album of the year, and had her lead single '16 Shots' included on Spotify's official State of Jazz playlist alongside artists Christian Scott and Kamasi Washington, among others.

Mykia made her debut performance at Essence Festival 2018 performing inside the Good Vibes Superlounge with her band. Following up on her Essence Fest buzz, Mykia completed her first tour performing in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, PA, and Brooklyn, NY as the headliner for Dopeciety’s COUCHES tour.
