About Miki Berenyi

Berenyi was born in Chelsea, London to a Japanese mother, actress Yasuko Nagazumi, and Hungarian father, Ivan Berenyi. She is also a second cousin of the Japanese singer-songwriter Cornelius. Her parents divorced when she was young and Berenyi began to divide her time between her mother and father’s separate houses. Berenyi mentions in her autobiography that at her father’s house, she was subjected to sexual abuse from both family friends and her paternal grandmother.

At age 14, Berenyi met friend and future bandmate Emma Anderson while both were students at private school Queen’s College. They became interested in music and together published a music fanzine, Alphabet Soup (which lasted for five issues). Berenyi first played bass with the band the Bugs.

In 1987, Berenyi studied English literature at North London Polytechnic, where she met drummer Chris Acland and singer Meriel Barham. Along with Anderson, they decided to form their own band, originally called the Baby Machines. Bassist Steve Rippon joined and they changed their name to Lush. When Barham left, “the remaining members of Lush placed ads in local papers looking for Barham’s replacement, but they couldn’t find the singer they wanted and Berenyi took over the vocals”
