20 year-old rising star Audrey Mika returns to release her new song and video for “Alive” via RCA Records Written by Audrey, Midi Jones, Andrew Luce, Jesse Saint John and Amisha Sarkar and produced by Midi Jones and Andrew Luce, “Alive” is a soaring showcase for Audrey’s powerhouse vocals. The music video for the track, directed by Mara Whitehead, is the first time Audrey is letting the world into her past life as a dancer.
Audrey Mika says, “This song is a huge reminder to me to be thankful that I am even here and alive in this world and appreciating the ups and downs of life. It’s a reminder and affirmation that it’s okay to not always be okay and to surround yourself with people that look out for you. I’ve come to realize that I wanted to bring dancing and my music together and go back to this part of me. I think that dancing adds vulnerability and I felt it went hand in hand with this song. The dancing, the singing, and the lyrics show all the different sides of me and who I am. And I hope I can share, and inspire others to do the same and show them that they can trust themselves when things become uncomfortable.”
Earlier this year, Audrey released “Chivalry” and “Excuses” which was featured in Teen Vogue’s “Best New Music Friday” list as well as Billboard’s “10 Cool New Pop Songs.”
