Moha
Moha
Moha was raised between Senegal, France, and the United States, and thus developing a rare perspective on what life’s journey entails in different parts of the world. ‘Fit’ is Moha’s 10-song debut album, and is an energetic and emotional journey of endurance. The album title appropriately translates to ‘courage’ in Wolof, Moha’s native language. His live show involves an 8-piece band and is a musical journey through the album's story, touching upon every emotion on the way.
MICKY
MICKY
MICKY is the moniker under which singer and songwriter Michael Persall creates Motown-tinged Pop music with a classic rock and soul aftertaste. Known for his vibrant and energetic stage performances, MICKY has asserted himself as a true frontman while playing with his band around New York City. Growing up in a Bed and Breakfast in the Bay Area, California, MICKY was exposed to a wide variety of people and tastes at a young age. He began performing the classics his parents turned him onto regularly for guests staying at the Bed and Breakfast, leading him to discover his love for performing. By high school, he started writing his own music on guitar and piano, as well as recording Hip-Hop influenced tracks. MICKY's music is best described as genre-bending and multi-generational in appeal, citing influences from Elvis, James Brown, and The Rolling Stones, to Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Outkast, and James Morrison. He recently accomplished a goal of performing over 400 shows in 2015, ending up at 408 gigs total in the year. He is fresh off residencies at Pianos and Rockwood Music Hall, headlining The Studio at Webster Hall, and multiple Sofar Sounds gigs. He's received praise from outlets such as CLASH, BAEBLE, and The Deli Magazine, among others. MICKY released his debut stand-alone single, "Candid" early 2017 and it has quickly reached over a million streams. His self-titled debut EP will be released in January 2018.
