Mieka Pauley was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1981 and raised in Kentucky, Colorado and Florida before returning to Boston for school. She grew up singing and performing, teaching herself to play guitar on her uncle's old acoustic while in high school. She graduated from Harvard University in 2002 with a degree in Biological Anthropology. Yup, Biological Anthropology - "a branch of anthropology that studies the mechanisms of biological evolution, genetic inheritance, human adaptability and variation, primatology, primate morphology, and the fossil record of human evolution," according to wikipedia. All that, and she's a brainiac, too. Wow.
