To quote "Milosh":

I started playing cello at the age of three and looking back, with older eyes, I have to admit that I've always had an intense attraction to songs that are sad, soft and beautiful. I ended up studying music in University (drums and voice) and playing in many different kinds of bands from rock to jazz. Ultimately though, I've always wanted to create songs that in some way come from that same place in me that felt so much for the music that defined my childhood -- beautiful music. I try to capture moments of my life in the songs that I create. I take things that, for whatever reason -- be it good, bad or sad, have moved me in some way. I wrap them up in sounds that I think are cool and fit what I am trying to say. I try to ride that thin line of mixing technology with some heart and I try not to cloud the original intention of the song. Basically I like pretty things and in turn I am trying to make pretty things.[1]

Milosh, who is from Toronto, Ontario, is currently based in Los Angeles U.S.A. He is currently married to Alexa Nikolas.
