Singing, Sounding and Healing JourneysJul 31, 2019
In this Soulfull Sound conversation I speak with the beautiful Kiki Militsis who is a singer, a songwriter, recording artist and performance mentor, with diverse roots that bring a unique worldly quality to her musical passion and expression.
In this episode, Kiki shares her experience of starting over as an artist and shares her ‘formula’ for success – intuition + intention + action. She makes the point that everything we experience (even if unpleasant) gives us an opportunity to learn and grow.
Kiki speaks about the demands of the music industry and her wish for the industry to place more value on the artists and their artistry. She also expresses how important it is to look after ourselves as artists and shares some tips on how to do this.
Kiki also opens up about her personal healing journey and the realisations she encountered on her way back to health. A very heartfelt and touching story…
