Sydney based emerging artist/producer Miracle is thrilled to announce the release of his debut album “Mainland”. Produced by ARIA Award winning producer Stylaz Fuego (360, Seth Sentry, Illy) and co-produced by Nic Martin, the young artist has poured his heart and soul into an album that explores and pushes traditional musical boundaries, fusing hip-hop, alternative and progressive sounds.
Born in Ghana, West Africa, Blessed Samuel Joe Andah came into the world with much to fight for after surviving intense respiratory complications as an infant. His mother appealed to a higher spiritual power and he won the fight. “I almost died, but my Mum prayed so hard that I was spared”, he recalls. “After that Mum called me her miracle baby!” and hence his hip-hop moniker was birthed.

Miracle is industrious, determined and isn’t afraid to push the envelope when it comes to his creative ingenuity. He is putting Australian Hip-Hop/fusion on the international music map and doing so with much aplomb. His debut Miracle Iller EP demonstrated his raw and honest love for the music but also showcased a fierce entrepreneurial streak that has and continues to serve him well. Beloved by his growing number of fans across all social media platforms, supported with respect and the genuine streak of curiosity by industry peers and punters alike, it’s hard to not be impressed by this multi-talented progressive hip-hop producing sage. He is something of a musical prodigy, coveting the elements of writing, producing, performing and harnessing the talent for making it happen on his terms. He is on a mission to expand the perimeters of Australia’s urban music boundaries and is keen to utilize his community awareness. His sound has matured with lyrics that resonate on a deeper level. He is an artist that is constantly growing, learning, teaching and inspiring, and just as his moniker states; he is quite simply a miracle.
“I wasn’t allowed to listen to hip-hop for a long time because my parents are really religious people. So the first time I really listened to it was with Kanye’s track and the fact that it mentioned Jesus, well my parents were cool with me listening to it. I then wanted to learn more about hip hop and its influences and I started to discover what it was really about”.
