@OfficialMizGin "Get You Off"

Mizgin Demircan is a Swedish music artist that is making her debut here in the United States with her sexy, fierce music and intoxicating voice, best known for her single "Get U Off". She is turning heads and rocking stages, boasting raw, enthusiastic energy and an eclectic sound.

A true artist to her core, Mizgin dreamed of hitting the top of the charts ever since she first started singing, writing, and performing as a young girl. Growing up in Bollnäs, a small town in Sweden, the musical scene was limited and she had trouble finding things to participate in as a singer. Nevertheless, she threw herself into everything she could find, including school shows, small venues and local events. For a while she tried taking dance classes but somehow always ended up practicing at home in front of the mirror and creating original moves that felt more like her own style. While she occasionally draws inspiration from others, Mizgin is primarily self-taught and loves adapting and re-creating things into something new and different. She believes that allowing your individuality to pour out of you unfiltered is what makes a successful artist.

In 2008, Mizgin went out on a limb and auditioned for the popular Swedish TV show Körslaget, a competition in which seven celebrities return to their respective hometowns and each select 20 singers for their own choir. The seven teams then compete until just one is left standing. Hanna Hedlund was the celebrity singer leading Mizgin's team. They worked hard, dedicating three months of their life to practicing and performing each round before ultimately winning the competition. It was a thrilling experience that only intensified her desire to succeed.

Mizgin always felt like she was meant to do something great with her life and has worked incredibly hard to make that vision a reality. Armed with the knowledge that things are never handed to you in life, she chased after her dream with infectious enthusiasm. In 2013, she traveled to America with Oscar Andersson, a long-time friend who was planning to start a music company in Sweden. Serendipity brought her together with Kama, the talented production duo that would ultimately become her producers here in the United States, as well as co-writer Nav Ramasamy and talent manager Kelly Newton of Jack N Jill Management.

Her single "Get U Off" was originally slated for one of the biggest pop stars in the world, but Mizgin was so struck by the song that she knew she wanted it more than anything. She approached her producers and told them that she was not leaving until the song was hers. "You wanted someone hungry," she told them. "Well, I'm starving." True to her word, she did not leave the studio until her producers agreed to give the song to her. "They looked at me like I was crazy," Mizgin admits, "but in the end that's who I am." In everything that she does, she continues to inspire those around her with her infectious passion and dedication. Music is not just her dream, it is her life -- and nothing is going to keep her from making it a reality.

"The only thing that is endless in life is your imagination, so never be afraid to use it and believe in it. If you want something, go get it; no one is going to get it for you. You may get help along the way, but the only one that can truly take you where you want to go is you." --Mizgin
