MYKYLE is young teenage South African born male Singer, Songwriter/Producer. He began creating music at the age of 2 & started recording his own songs officially when he was 11. Within that year Mykyle was discovered by CeeLo Green(Grammy Award Winner, Singer/Songwriter/Producer & former coach on The Voice) in Los Angeles United States, in December 2014. CeeLo has since been a mentor, supporter & family friend to Mykyle. He made a brave decision not to pursue a career abroad but first in his home country. Mykyle decided to sacrifice being with his friends & having a normal high school life, to pursue his dream. He is now an A-Grade homeschooled student, while juggling a full-time career as a musician and performing artist. Even though he has been blessed with music, his life has not been without challenges, like having his parent’s separate when he was 3, dealing incidences of racism and bullying at school, & overcoming disappointment & negativity along the path of his music career, but this has all shaped him into the young man & talent he is today.
Mykyle creates melodies with ease, & writes candid yet relatable lyrics from his own life experiences. He is passionate about making music that is honest. His preferred genres are hip hop, trap and urban pop. He chooses not be labelled by one vocal style & can go from singing to rapping effortlessly. Mykyle has three forthcoming Singles (from his EP – written by him when he was 14yrs old) the first of which is entitled SEE HER. This urban-pop song was a playful yet catchy track about the innocent feelings of a boy attracted to a girl, based on an experience he had at a party once. Mykyle then followed with an online release of a track called Gold Lights. Gold Lights is a Hip Hop track that was written & produced by Mykyle when he was 12yrs old. Gold Lights showcases Mykyle’s sophisticated songwriting ability at an early age, combined with his talent for rapping and singing over a cleverly arranged catchy beat.
