Sharon Oh, better known by her stage name Mikkoh, is a Korean American musician, activist, and multidisciplinary artist based in Atlanta, Georgia. Originally from Seoul, Mikkoh moved to a small town on the outskirts of Atlanta at a younge age where her affinity toward heavy basslines, skimming hi-hats, and snappy snares made her fall in love with the city’s booming hip hop scene. While at home, her mother’s vinyl collection and classical training made her appreciate the underlying nuances between all genres. After graduating from one of the top science and engineering programs in the nation, she decided to take the road less traveled to follow her passion of bringing communities together through music and art.
This doctrine of duality also seeps into her art. Her production style and musical selections blend the hard-hitting low end and percussive elements of trap music with soulful, symphonic sounds that suspend the listener in a timeless awe. Mikkoh's deep appreciation for all kinds of music and the communion that it inspires directly influences her DJing style. Her signature open format approach is characterized by seamless transitions between genres like R&B, hip hop, jazz, indie, soul, funk, house, trap, and everything in between.
Can art be art without thought, feeling, or purpose? As one of the original founders of Bae Worldwide, Mikkoh is an advocate for carving out safe spaces for female creatives to thrive. Most recently, Mikkoh took her talents to the 501(c)(3) non-profit Kollaboration where she heads strategy and operations to provide a platform for Asian American performing artists.
