USA TOUR 2022

As a part of promoting Mirka Novak’s debut, which will be released in the summer 2022, she is currently touring the USA. Her travels begin in Austin, TX, where she records new originals with a full band at the Alnico recording studio. The musicians on this record are: Matthew Thomas Muehling (guitar), Dayne Reliford (keys), Nick J. Lewis (bass) and Justin Hights (drums).

Heading north-east to play some prestigious concerts in New York City, Washington D.C. and Boston, MA, she will continue to expand her music business network. In May, Mirka will be returning back to Austin to present this unique performance on a loop station at the music event Sofar Sounds in Austin, TX. While staying in TX, she will also be giving a couple of interviews on Austin’s radio stations and performing at local jazz clubs.
