A natural showman

By now it is clear that Mika is not as other artists are. Enveloped in an imaginative musical world of his own creation, he is one of the few British male pop stars of his age that doesn't run with the pack. Classically trained and prone to theatrical physical gesture he says his music can be condensed easily, ‘the basic principals are that it is joyful and empowering and doesn't cowtow to fashion or convention,' calling to mind an old and almost forgotten pop notion: individuality.

Mika opened his pop career with the defining single Grace Kelly. It has sold almost 3 million copies worldwide and was only the second British single to top the chart on downloads alone. His total single sales from Life In Cartoon Motion add up beyond six million. Mika was nominated for and won awards from the Brits, the Grammys, the Ivor Novellos, Capital Radio, Q magazine, The World Music Awards, BT and Vodaphone, Virgin Media and MTV's Europe, Asia, Australia and Japan, amongst others. But the statistics only hint at the strident grip he boldly took on pop music when he entered its fray; they are the neat vindication that one of pop's biggest outsiders could conquer from within.

Mika tickets are on sale now, please visit the eden sessions website for tickets.
