In an industry that looks to box artists into rigid categories, Mylah is one who has always looked to test boundaries. Her music is not just R&B or Soul; not exclusively sexy, trendy or classic - the different genres and aesthetics are meshed together effortlessly by this seasoned performer. Mylah's music reflects her overall personality- cool exterior and deeply passionate underneath.

She’s worked with such notables as Sean “Diddy” Combs on MTV’s Making The Band 3, Brandon “BAM” Hodge and Grammy Award winning producer and songwriter, Bryan-Michael Cox.

She is currently working on a new project set to release in March. Mylah currently has a single on the radio, “Booed Up” with frequent collaborator, Anthony David. The song has amassed almost 2 years of radio play, steady sales & tens of thousands Spotify streams.
"I don't write picture perfect love songs, nor do I have flawless vocals, but the music is a beautifully honest look on love and my life. I don't do cliche, because I'm not that type of girl. Honesty is key." It's that refreshing honesty and ability to tap into different musical vibes that will surely grab listeners' ears and keep Mylah making music for years to come.
JK is currently in the studio working on his full-length debut album. For now, his EP Unpacked gives his fans something special to hold them over. Led by the single "I Do," Unpacked is a bluesy, bass-driven bop with undeniable southern charm and the genuine perspective of a man that is sure of his love while showcasing confidence in his craft.
