Miu, the pop sensation from Haiti met The Sunset Kings frontman at CDBaby’s DIY Music Conference in Chicago last September where they learned from industry staples such as music blogger and lifestylist Ari Herstand, rock photographer Becky Yee, and Patreon founder Jack Conte.
David, Miu’s manager, says about The Sunset Kings,
“There are plenty of musicians we met in Chicago, but what we like about The Sunset Kings is they are authentic. They’re not trying to prove anything to anybody.” — Now Hear This Entertainment, NHTE 120 Miu
Garnering over 277,000 YouTube views on her Fall 2015 single, “They Say”, Miu’s artistic energy is undeniable, and her collaboration with The Sunset Kings is bound to result in a sound we haven’t yet heard from either artist.

Frontman Allister Quilon says, “We really want to make this a donations based event because we get an awesome opportunity that not a lot of people get, to be hosting such a cool person like Miu, who also happens to be a great artist … I don’t see that as success for us. I see that as a success for the community that I am a part of, and I want it to be as accessible as possible to anyone who wants to share in this moment. Who cares if you don’t have five bucks? Just come in and hang out.”
