Raised on the outskirts of Camden, NSW, Mikayla Pasterfield’s debut single ‘Damage You Still Do’ is already the stuff of legend. Over a million views on TikTok with comments from Gracie Abrams (“YEAHHHHHHH”), Zach Bryan (“no sike. you’re such a great writer”), Chelsea Cutler (“Wow”) and more, +400k streams and counting on Spotify and Apple Music plus playlisting on triple j, not only has Mikayla Pasterfield’s name begun resonating globally – her sights are firm on building her buzz into a secure place as one of the country’s next best songwriters.
Motivated to share songs from the heart, ‘Bindi in the Dirt’ is another engaging illustration of Mikayla’s technicality balanced against her passion to “write for people with big feelings that need a good cry.” Since stumbling into music accidentally – a “high school scheduling mishap” – Mikayla has honed her penmanship over the last four years, considering story with catharsis in her resonant ability. Moments away from revealing her formal introduction with her debut EP, now is the time to get familiar with Mikayla Pasterfield.
