“ We have the lovely, talented Milena Lainovic singing on a couple of tracks (including the only cover) – she was an obvious choice because aside from being a great singer, she already knew the cover I suggested and again, we love the same music ”
Tom O’Grady from Resolution 88
“ London based singer-songwriter, piano player and all-round multi-talented performer has released her album Everyday featuring “He”, an uplifting track representing zealous confidence across all musical platforms, and fusing a classical element to the pop genre. Milena is an artist who takes her career seriously. Through every ounce of detail in writing her own songs, the sheer positivity in her performance and not to mention the amount of passion she expresses in her stride. Yet, what stands out in “He”, is the nonchalant attitude she depicts; Milena’s cheery attitude is an obvious natural element of her character and is what gives her music personal style.
As the track reaches its close, Milena puts the nail in the coffin with an unexpected solo on the piano, ending the song as it started, with pure elegancy ”
Aly McHugh from A&R Factory
“ What an exceptional package. Milena’s voice comes through like the sunshine does every morning. A breath of fresh air comes to mind and the production work on each track is where it needs to be. Quality package ”

“The exciting release of ‘Summer Of Heat & Spice’, written and performed by singer-songwriter Milena is here! As an accomplished pianist, vocalist and songwriter, Milena has the natural ability to tell a story with a heartfelt message. Her song releases additionally demonstrate her skill as a composer and arranger.
Shot in an idyllic setting, there is an array of picturesque scenes which have been captured in the music video. The unfolding scenes illustrate a dreamy yet promising romance. Milena has joined forces again with “Brother Sun Sister Moon Productions” in the creation of this music video.
Her creative dedication and musicianship are both inspiring and captivating. Milena’s current repertoire is an enthralling combination of creativity and professionalism. Her bright vocals and soulful harmonies are beautifully delivered and complement the song’s key signature.
This track is the ideal song to soundtrack your summer and serves as a prelude for her upcoming EP, set to debut in May 2020”
