Originally from Detroit, transplanted to the Hollywood music scene as a teenager, with detours through Boston, NYC and London, MIKAL is an uncommon, indie pop/rock musical artist who doesn't subscribe to the common misconception that a solo artist must fall into the oft-clichéd 'singer / songwriter' style that we've all grown used to. According to Mikal, one of the great things about being a solo artist is the freedom that it brings, allowing the artist to write and perform however they choose. It is the ability to play an intimate and dimly lit show with only an acoustic guitar one night, add a string trio the next, then turn around and play a full out rock concert the very next night that makes Mikal such an attraction to clubs and campuses across the US, Canada and the UK.
Mikal has been seen and heard on television stations across the U.S., including Mtv, VH1, and more. Mikal's music has also gained airplay on literally hundreds of college and mainstream radio stations across North America and Europe. Currently, MIKAL's music is charting on several college and indie stations, even occupying the #1 spot on several.
Mikal has received 24 Music Award nominations, and is an official Taylor Artist, for Taylor Guitars.
Mikal tours colleges, clubs and theaters across America and the UK, and is looking forward to expanding that radius.
