Miss Q is the alter-ego of Pia Nielsen: Danish singer, composer and actress based in Barcelona. She studied acting at Teatro Estudio Victor Hernando (Barcelona, 2001-2003), Modern music and Jazz at Conservatorio del Liceo (Barcelona, 2004-2008) and electronic music production at Microfusa (Barcelona, 2011-2012).
During her music career she has created soundtracks for theater plays, documentary films, art videos and animation videos.
She has released three solo albums signing as Miss Q; ‘…Introducing Lovely Miss Q’ (Tsunami Music, 2011), ‘Tirol’ (Reco-Head Records, 2014), both produced by the Catalan musician Guillamino, and ‘Horum Memoriam’ (Sang Records, 2016), produced by herself.
Miss Q works with contrasts in her music; the synthetic versus the organic, the shiny versus the opaque, the raw versus the soft.
This way she creates her own sound located somewhere between electronica and traditional songwriting. As in a post-modern electronic Cabaret here ́s room for anything; sophisticated jazz, oldschool blues, broken beats, abstract funk, contemporary Tirolean mountain choirs and even touches of urban free-folk. Miss Q drinks from many sources.
Since she started her solo career Miss Q has done a large number of shows all around Europe. For the live staging she counts on the visuals by Mademoiselle Oui Oui, pseudonym of the multidisciplinary artist from Barcelona Carolina Cabrerizo.
