Imagine Jill Scott and Mariah Carey’s love child with a modern twist - a soulful power house, heavily influenced by artists such as Alicia Keys, Aretha Franklin and many other RnB sensations. Mikyla Cara combines both old school Neo-soul/RnB melodies and stylistic features, with a more contemporary style of writing.
Growing up, Luton-born Mikyla sung from a very young age, mostly mimicking other artists, then later began developing her own sound through writing and vocal arrangement/production. As a self described empath, she sings with an emotive sound. This, combined with her ability to enable her personal experiences and pain to transpire in her songs, means her writing is often described as relatable and from the heart.
In January 2017, inspired by her recent journey into motherhood, Mikyla released her debut EP entitled ‘Grown’. The lead single, of the same title, was penned to pay homage to the emotional growth experienced after the birth of her daughter. After the release, she went on to perform her first sell-out headline show in her hometown, ultimately debunking the notion that being a mother means the end of pursuing your dreams.
Currently, Mikyla is experimenting with a fresh sound which she is developing alongside talented musicians and producers. Predominantly, she is working closely with versatile, South London producer Scarz on a collation of new songs showcasing her soulful vocals, complimented by edgy RnB productions. Mikyla released three consecutive singles this year produced by Scarz, the latest being 'Love To Love' which racked up over 10,000 streams within the first week! With the success of the last few singles under her belt she is putting pen to paper again writing new material, set to be released in the coming months.
