Inside each of us are endless possibilities. It was travel that awoke these possibilities in Mish, a free-spirited girl from Costa Rica who grew up singing, playing, and using the studio as a sanctuary for expression and sonic exploration.
Last year, she left home to trek around Europe on her way to record in Sweden. As she travelled, Mish bought a guitar for 20 bucks and traded music for food and housing. The people who struck Mish the most were the people in the streets: the artists, the refugees. As she spoke to them, Mish saw that there can be a moment in which you forget yourself and your suffering and focus only on creation.
Through this emotional awakening, Catt was born: a fearless, impulsive, mystic alter-ego. Mish discovered that Catt overflowed with love and compassion, and encouraged people to remember their dreams and creativity. In that moment, Mish realized that she needed Catt, just as Catt needed Mish. These two personalities grew together and became MishCatt, an artist who uses art and music to empower the listener and spreads love to everyone she meets.
MishCatt’s first EP Highlighter was recorded in Sweden with Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow, Amason). It represents her first collaborative creation and reveals a sonic jungle that veers between analog and digital, building layers of psychedelic sound and texture. MishCatt was born with synesthesia, a perceptual condition of mixed senses, and she sees colors and shapes in each track she writes.
