SELF

My name is Mykal Kilgore and I’m a singer/songwriter/performer. I get asked all of the time, “When is the album coming out?” It’s been my not so secret hope to get in the studio so that I can work on my very own project. Well, the time is now! I am very excited to say that I’ve been working hard with an amazing crew and I’m ready to record... but, I need your help!

SOUND

This project is bringing out all of the lessons I've learned from years of youtubing Patti Labelle, Donny Hathaway, and James Taylor. I represent classic roots music with a modern feel. Lyrically, I'm going to go deep and sing about love, politics, God thoughts, family... all of it is in there. 

CENTS

This page is to raise the money for the recording, mixing, mastering, and printing of my debut album--a project that is being released independently Summer 2016. Your investment ensures that "independent" does not translate into any lack in quality. I’m working with amazing producers, writers, and other creatives who are going to see to it that your $30,000 dollars make it sing!!!

SIGHTS

Risks and challenges

I want to make sure that this album is perfect for you all, so It may come out a little later than summer.
