Miloe is the musical project of Bob Kabeya, a 20-year old artist based in Minneapolis. Growing up in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Bobby was raised by musical parents who met through the church choir during college and taught him to play the piano at the age of six.
When he was eight years old Bobby traveled over 7,000 miles with his mother and three younger brothers to reunite with their father, a journalist who was granted asylum in Minneapolis three years prior. Once in the US, Bobby began to pick-up more instruments through the local art and after-school programs, eventually beginning to jam with friends outside of school in his early teens.
In 2017 Miloe was officially formed, building a local fanbase through high-energy basement shows with a seamless blend of indie pop and rumba folk. His self-titled EP was released in 2017, followed by singles Motorola and Everything (That Should Go). The follow-up Greenhouse EP, due out in October 2020, feels energetic and youthful, possessing lyrics that aren’t afraid to lean into teenage melodrama and idealism.
