"Featured Artist: Apollo Mighty"

After learning of Apollo Mighty’s recent release of “IX” (EP), I rushed to my computer to listen to his creation. Dramatically opening with the Serenity Prayer, the album delves into extensive religious imagery and Apollo Mighty’s deeply personal reflection of suffering and resilience. The smooth emotion evoked by impeccable vocals and laid-back beats seeped from my headphones, leaving me in the narrative world crafted by Apollo Mighty. He says his sound has an R&B soul foundation, “but with a spin on it. My music is influenced by everything that I listen to. Anything that I can feel and embodies my soul I want to incorporate into my music.”

Being born in Memphis, elements of the city that raised Apollo Mighty are evident within his lyrics. In the song Ascend he croons, “I’m not just some guy from Orange Mound”and within the lyrics of Sunrise, “I put it down for the people of M-town”. When questioned about his favorite venue he has performed at in Memphis Apollo Mighty answered, “I performed at the Hard Rock three times and Minglewood Hall once. I’m really blessed. My favorite venue was the Hard Rock because it was a big event with a lot of other artists and patrons. It was my first time performing with my band on stage so I got to let loose. The adrenaline was bumping through me and I could really feel the energy of the crowd.”
Apollo Mighty entered the music scene with “an infinity for music and coming up with lyrics and a beat”. He cites singing in church as his first experience exploring music, followed by listening to pop music and singing along – “My mom had given me a tape recorder with three CDs: Brandy, Whitney Houston, and Boys to Men, and I used to mimic the songs on each of them.”
He has certainly taken his early exposures to music and turned them into a passion for the art of sound and music production. Passion, clearly translated in Apollo Mighty’s album, also appears in his performances. When asked about his favorite part of performing for an audience, Apollo Mighty said it was the connection he gets to make with people while on stage. \
“I can see the people in front of me and look into their eyes and see the music and lyrics registering with them. The people and their response to the songs are really what make me excited about putting on a show.”
The people should equally be excited for Apollo Mighty’s release of album and further emergence into the Memphis music scene. Bringing smooth sound, captivating narrative lyrics, and a distinct Memphian flavor with the art of his music, Apollo Mighty releases his new EP album with notable appreciation for “good art and good creativity”. As Mighty sings in his song Ascend, “I won’t just arrive, I’ll arise.”

"Apollo Mighty - VI (Album Stream)"

Talented artist Apollo Mighty recently linked up with the good people over at DJBOOTH for his free album ‘VI’. Even though the EP is a short 6 track project, it tells a great story on the hardships of losing someone close to you. It brought on only one feature of Rayna. Production was handled by the likes of Rocketship Sails, HiFadility, Little people and The AQuaDice. Hopefully we hear more from the Memphis talent soon. - RapXclusive.com

"Apollo Mighty - VI"

Memphis artist Apollo Mighty has come together with The DJBooth to bring listeners his latest street release, the VI EP.

Part two in the artist’s Project 369 trilogy, the EP “depicts the darkness that comes after [losing] someone near and dear to your heart.” Included among its six original tracks is reader-approved lead single “Darkside of the Moon.”

Singer Rayna is the sole guest on VI, which features beats by The AQuaDice, HiFadility, LittlePeople and Rocketship Sails. - DJBooth.net

"Debut Leak: Apollo Mighty - There Was A Time [prod. The AQuaDice]"

Memphis kid @Apollo_Skyvu is another reason to be excited about the burgeoning new musicians coming out of Tennessee (Petty, Isaiah Rashad, Ro Marquez, etc.). Listening to his IV EP for the first time I was instantly drawn to his artistry after the intro, where he does something that many artists have done less of in recent years, he effectively sets the mood.

This new leak is the outro track from the vocalist’s astonishingly straightforward new EP, which is a conceptual project detailing the process of leaving a love behind. Listen below as Apollo Mighty vents about the better days with a voice equal parts Jeremih and emotional soulful rasp. Do yourself a favor and listen to the the full EP here, and yes you will be in your feelings. - DaLeak.com

"Apollo Lands On the Dark Side"

Imagine a Kid Cudi and John Legend love child, or a painting that fell and turned to liquid of beautiful sound; this is exactly that. "Dark Side of the Moon," is Memphis artist Apollo Mighty's painting of his personal story. Who knew a bad breakup could sound so beautiful? Mighty's smoky vocals paired with the poly-rhythm of acoustic guitar, piano, and percussion bring us something like a modern day Romanticist's piece. The song was produced by Rocketship Sails and engineered/mixed by Yoji Robi.

"Dark Side of the Moon," is the second single from Apollo's forthcoming project "VI." . - Athens: New Renaissance Magazine

"Apollo Mighty- Darkside of the Moon"

First things first: push all thoughts of Pink Floyd out of your mental, as Apollo Mighty‘s Booth debut has nothing whatsoever to do with the classic-rockers’ seminal LP of (almost) the same name. Instead, the title “Darkside of the Moon” refers to the facets of our personalities we don’t want to acknowledge. On this mournful cut, the follow-up to non-featured debut single There Was a Time, the Memphis singer/songwriter reminisces about a girl who walked out of his life and took a piece of him with her. Producer Rocketship Sails provides a lush, melancholy instrumental backdrop for his story of love and loss. Feeling it? Then watch the Booth for more fresh cuts leading up to the December release of Mighty’s independent debut album, VI. - DJBooth.net
