well i heard you were trouble
and you heard i was trouble
but your name is a wave washing over me
Listen: Mikky Ekko – Pull Me Down
Mikky Ekko is originally from Louisiana but relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue his songwriting dreams. While experiencing and readjusting to his new home Mikky Ekko discovered while writing music for others of the likes of Rihanna, that he also enjoyed creating music for himself and wanted to perform on his own. Influenced by different elements of r&b, gospel, and downtempo, he created the Strange Fruit EP back in 2009 that was mostly acapella showcasing his melodic range, which eventually landed into the hands of hip hop producer Clams Casino. Now the two have collaborated together to work on Mikky Ekko’s debut, and have released the sensual single Pull Me Down showcasing the magical energy of both artists’ styles blending together.
