Mikal Shapiro was born and mostly raised in Kansas City, Missouri.

​​Her musical influences span popular songs, psych rock, lounge, and old time spirituals as well as classic country, jazz and blues. A third generation storyteller, she draws inspiration from her travels, love life, and the state of the Union. 

​​The Kansas City Star, Deli Magazine and Wednesday MidDay Medley declared her new album “The Musical” to be one of the top releases of 2015.

​​Mikal performs solo, with her duo Shapiro Brothers, her four-piece ensemble The Musical, and South American family band Ayllu.
​​"...a savvy and seamless mix of folk, rock, pop, jazz and blues from one of our area's most gifted songwriters."
