Hi! My name is Purr Mewsik.
I also go by Purr.
I live in the Indianapolis area, but I'm originally from Illinois. I love living in the Midwest! I moved south for a couple of years and missed the four seasons (I even missed snow!).
I started singing when I was pretty young. I remember singing on my swing set in the back yard, making up little songs and just singing them out loud to myself.
Fast forward a few years... I played percussion(mostly snare, sometimes bass, etc.) throughout school and sang in choir and honor's choir. I'm a second soprano (mezzo-soprano). That's where my voice feels most comfortable - right in the middle, not too high. I was accepted into the Illinois All-State Choir in high school, which felt really good and encouraged me to continue singing. I don't have a loud booming voice, but I have a smooth voice that harmonizes well.
In college, I studied English, creative writing, and art history. I was also in community choir and women's choir during college because I felt like I had to keep singing.
People ask me why I wanted to be a music artist and also why now. Well, the answer is a little complicated, but when COVID-19 happened I couldn't stop watching the news and worrying about everything. I sang karaoke on singing apps on my phone to distract myself. I randomly found some recording apps where you could pick a beat and then sing whatever you wanted on it. I tried it out, writing my own lyrics on beats, and REALLY enjoyed it. It got to the point where I was making 2 or 3 songs per week and singing to my family for feedback. After I wrote about 10 songs, I noticed my family giving me a different look, like ok you're good and actually going for it.
My dad was also a talented singer and multi-instrumentalist. He sang in the house and car, and was also a big teaser and a huge personality, unlike anyone I've ever known. He played the trumpet, saxophone, banjo, and piano. He passed away when I was 16 years old. I had to grow up really quickly after that and my whole life changed. Music makes me remember him. I find myself writing songs with nostalgic topics thinking about him. I know he would be super proud that I am involved in music now and it makes me feel connected to him.
I love a lot of music genres because I grew up listening to my parents' favorite music and a lot of radio. They liked lots of genres including oldies, Motown, pop, rock, jazz, dance, etc. My favorite genres have always been R&B and hip hop/rap. I'm influenced by the smooth and jazzy vocals from Aaliyah, Lauryn Hill, Brandy, Janet Jackson, Erykah Badu, etc. and the vibed-out female singers of the 90s and 2000s. My biggest current influences are Drake (my #1 fave), Summer Walker, Jhené Aiko, Kehlani, Ella Mai, Alina Baraz, and H.E.R.
I started listening to chill and lofi music in college and wanted to challenge myself to sing on those beats too. So, my music goal is to release new R&B songs and dabble in lofi hip hop songs throughout the year.
I'm very independent and most all of what goes into the music side of my life I do myself. I enjoy having my own creative control. It's the music business part that I'm still navigating, but I'm a fast learner. All I need is a beat, recording studio, and a music attorney, and I am good to create lots of new songs. I plan my releases throughout the year and enjoy working with talented producers and engineers to make my song ideas come to life.

I thought of it one day when I was creating a username on a karaoke app. I thought of Purr and I like using "mew" in the word "music." When I put them together as Purr Mewsik, I loved it! I also have a smooth voice, so the word "Purr" goes along with that.
