The summer of 2013 is heating up for Mickey Shiloh with her debut single "Team No Sleep." Mickey had an exciting spring with features on LL Cool J's latest album Authentic and King Los' mixtape Becoming King as well as songwriting releases on Cassie's latest mixtape Rock-A-Bye Baby and a Major Lazer remix of her 2012 Dada Life release Boing Clash Boom. Mickey maintains the momentum with her debut single as a solo artist, soon to be followed by an EP later this summer. After exposing the world to her smooth, powerful voice on the defining hooks mentioned above, Mickey shows her versatility with the masterful rapping displayed on "Team No Sleep."

In "Team No Sleep" Mickey tells her story with her skillful rhyming while giving her fans another taste of her singing voice on the bridge, all over a high energy track produced by LuXx Durty. The lyric video, created by Kyle and Rob productions helps the fans keep up with her story. A remix of "Team No Sleep" will appear on Mickey's upcoming EP, produced by Marshall Bryant, the mix engineer on the current version.

After achieving a multitude of success writing for other artists, such as Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Pitbull, Jasmine Villegas and many more, Mickey is beginning to establish herself as a solo artist. "Team No Sleep" is all about that pursuit and what comes along with it. Mickey is all about staying busy. She can typically be found in the studio, recording herself at home, or working on her marketing and branding. With an entrepreneurial mentality, Mickey is creating a brand for her loyal fans. One that represents hard work and chasing your dreams. Mickey Shiloh's work ethic can be described by her quote, "I rest, but I don't sleep."

Make sure to keep up with Mickey Shiloh and look out for her EP, due for release summer 2013!

Take a listen to preview cuts “Simultaneous” which is an alluring, seductive sex jam, and “Insane” which has a slow whine Pop edge below… - This Is RNB


I don’t know shit about Mickey Shiloh, but I follow her on twitter and just took a chance on her EP. Off the strength of her songwriting affiliation to Getback orbiter and Warner songwriter @mjforshort_ I started checking out Shiloh’s career from a distance, who has written for the likes of Twista, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears and others. Put in the major songwriting leagues by producer DarkChild in 09’ it seems the 20 or so-year-old has been getting in the right room with the right people at a great point in her career.

I have a bittersweet relationship with songwriters in LA. On the one hand, I love that there is a lane for the pen game in the music industry here in Los Angeles. On the other hand, they can often be credited for writing those songs that make us all a bit dumber. Some of them are real writers in my book, who can sit in any medium of writing and tell a beautiful story with language, and music is just the one that pays the bills (or most appeals to them, or both.) However, some are people who write things just for chanting and drunk echoing purposes, who..suck. Knowing that many writers gotta pay the bills, I wait for their solo projects to see where their craft truly is. In listening to Mickey Shiloh’s 6-track EP, I can tell she cares far more about the beauty of melody, and expressing a feeling than making a chant for the frivolous listener. There is a bit of Jhene Aiko, a bit Drizzy, a little Rihanna, some JMSN, a hint of Chrisette Michele and some rapper attitude that makes her just enough familiar and enough uniqueness to hear her out. Judging by the production choices, my guess is she is a headphone geek (in the best way) that zones out to beats and just sings what comes as she hums to herself. Match that with someone who digs imagery and references, and out comes some music that is easy to FEEL - bravo to Shiloh for connecting with her listener.

Along with her EP comes a colorful lyric booklet, solidifying my assumption that she wants you to listen closely. With highlighted words for emphasis and different size fonts, Shiloh lets the art bleed into every creative choice about the project. She is for sure still finding her own music voice, but there are some amazing pieces in place for the young singer/songwriter to grow with. I am excited to watch and listen as she does so. Be sure to check her EP out by downloading HERE, and give Shiloh a follow on twitter @mickeyshiloh - See more at: http://thegetback.com/post/32321323627/artist-spotlight-mickey-shiloh-x-in-the-garden-of#sthash.X4d6qvsL.dpuf - The Getback


Mickey Shiloh has spent most of her young life with a paper and pen writing for other award-winning artists, but now she is ready for her turn in the spotlight.

Born Michaela Shiloh, the songwriter, singer, rapper and artist has made a name for herself in the music industry. Known for her swift songwriting and unparalleled vocals, Mickey Shiloh has been waiting for this day since the age of 7.


In the summer of 2007, Mickey Shiloh connected with producer Chad Beatz through MySpace and they began working together for the next two years. In 2009, she co-wrote the very successful song leak “B*tch I’m Special” by Rihanna with Chad Beatz which received hundreds of thousands of hits on YouTube within days.

It wasn’t too long after that she was fortunate enough to meet Grammy-award winning producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins in February of 2009. Admiring of her unique style and skills, Rodney signed Mickey Shiloh as an artist and songwriter to Darkchild Records in June 2009. Mickey Shiloh landed her first placement with the co-writing of Janet Jackson’s 2009 single “Make Me”.

Instead of partying like every other senior during their last year of high school, Mickey Shiloh stayed at home many nights and recorded into the early hours. Whenever she had a break from school, even if it was just a three-day weekend, she would fly to Los Angeles and work with Rodney and his team. Her latest placement is “Don’t Keep Me Waiting”, which appears on the 2011 Britney Spears’ album Femme Fatale.

Now, at 19 years old and her first year of college at USC under her belt, Mickey Shiloh is ready for the world to grow with her as an artist with her upcoming mix tape, Dear Future. The mix tape is set to release in July 2011 and will include all original songs exemplifying Mickey Shiloh the artist. With a goal to be known for her music and the authenticity of her lyrics, Mickey Shiloh wants to grow with her fans and discuss topics that are real and current within her age group.

“I was sitting in my room one day thinking about my future. I thought of the concept what if I could write to my future? What would I say?,” says Shiloh.

For inspiration, Mickey asked close industry colleagues to write one thing they would write to their future. From the info she received, it provided her with a creative vision on how she should approach the mix tape, Dear Future. To illustrate her journey and inspiration, Shiloh plans on including the information she received in the booklet of her mix tape cover.

“As an artist I want to grow with people,” says Shiloh. “I’m in college and want to talk about what we college kids and high school kids are going through. We drink, we party, we have sex and we fall in love. There is an absence of artists that speak about these things…I just want to be real.”

On her journey as an artist she aspires to be the voice of the young people and share her energetic personality with the world through her original music. Dear Future is set to release July 25, 2011 and will feature six of her original songs.

Bio

Born in the San Fransisco Bay Area to teenage parents, she was constantly surrounded by hip-hop throughout her childhood. Following in the footsteps of her father, an aspiring rapper, Mickey began writing her own raps at the age of 8. By 15, she had taught herself to record and mix her own songs and signed her first publishing deal to multi-platinum producer Chad Beatz (50 Cent, Cassie, Ashanti). Mickey worked with Chad for two years and got her first major placement with rap artist Twista.

During the summer before her junior year of high school, Mickey was introduced to Grammy award-winning producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins (Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Whitney Houston) through a mutual friend. At 17 she signed to Jerkins and landed her first number one on the Billboard Dance Charts with Janet Jackson’s “Make Me.” After graduating high school Mickey moved to Los Angeles and began working with major artists like Jennifer Lopez, Ray J, Shontelle, Britney Spears, Pitbull and many others, all while attending the University of Southern California. During this time she also wrote songs for the soundtrack of the Nickelodeon movie Rags and released her first mixtape, Dear Future. After becoming overwhelmed by the reality of balancing school and a music career, Mickey took a leave of absence from USC during her sophomore year and returned to the Bay Area.

In the spring of 2012, after an eight-month break from music, Mickey moved back to Los Angeles newly inspired to continue chasing her dreams. Since then Mickey has been working harder than ever, achieving incredible goals as a songwriter and artist.

Mickey has worked with producers like Alex Da Kid, Diplo, The Stereotypes, Andreas Carlsson, Young Yonny, DJ Chuckie, and Yung Berg.
