BandAlternativeRock

A 21st Century Artist.

Biography


In 2010 when Spinlight City disbanded after their stint on the Vans Warped Tour, it was déjä vu to MIKEI; after all, previous group Dear Dakota broke up after their single "Ode to an Ex" made it into regular rotation on 106.7XL, Orlando's Top 40 radio station.

Discouraged, but determined to not quit, MIKEI decided to take the reigns and began releasing music under his own name, this time as lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist.

Now after multiple surgeries on his ear drum and wrist, the death of a bandmate, and 3 independent releases, MIKEI is back and stronger than ever with his new EP, "Gray to Gold" (Available now on ITunes).

Stick Around

STICK AROUND
by Mikei

Lay in bed with such a bore
Oh you know, the same old story
Plotting out pipe dream plans
To save me from impending demands

More, More, More
More from me means more for you
More, More, More
Know I should leave, but I guess I'll

Stick Around (4x)

All the time things get better
But me, I think I should forget her
False ideals, fantasy dreams
Built as though a cage around me

More, More, More
More from me means more for you
More, More, More
Know I should leave, but I guess I'll

Stick Around (8x)

With patience winding down,
Unless a refill has been found
Expect a fleet escape, and once on my way
It's too late to change, (to change, to change)

Stick Around...

Here & Now

Written By: Mikei

HERE AND NOW
by: Mikei

Hope, is an abstract word like change
But it's not only me,
Holding onto hope for some kind of change

Truth, is not so far away
So there's no time to wait
The moment's arrived, a once in a lifetime thing

There's no time like right now,
There's no place like right here
There's no time like right now,
There's no place like right here

Look, around what do you see
Those unaware believe
It's the 2nd coming, soon we'll all be freed

Know, your heroes and your thieves
Aren't always what they seem
Like tales of cherry trees and american dreams

There's no time like right now,
There's no place like right here
There's no time like right now,
There's no place like right here
Right now, (now, hey)
Here, Here, (hey)
Right now, (now, hey)
Here, Here, (hey)

Redemptions just one word away
Redemptions just one word away
Redemptions just one word away
Redemptions just one word.

There's no time like right now,
There's no place like right here
There's no time like right now,
There's no place like right here
Right now, (now, hey)
Here, Here, (hey)
Right now, (now, hey)
Here, Here, (hey)

Runaway

RUNAWAY
by Mikei

If you want to Runaway, well go ahead,
Cause I can't live like this anymore
If you want to Runaway…

Every time I come around you're nowhere near to be found and
The only words I hear you speak are, "leave a message after the sound"

Well,
Slow down, Slow down
We're fast approaching another major fall out
Slow down, Slow down
You been waiting, here's your chance

If you want to Runaway, well go ahead,
Cause I can't live like this anymore
If you want to Runaway, well go 'head!
Cause I can't live like this,
No I can't live like this

Any-more, anymore, anymore

When I asked you, "how did all of this mess we're in come about?"
Silence fell upon your lips with both eyes shifted to the ground

Well,
Slow down, Slow down
We're fast approaching another major fall out
Slow down, Slow down
You been waiting, here's your chance

If you want to Runaway, well go ahead,
Cause I can't live like this anymore
If you want to Runaway, well go 'head!
Cause I can't live like this,
No I can't-

If you want to Runaway, well go ahead,
Cause I can't live like this anymore
If you want to Runaway, well go 'head!
Cause I can't live like this,
No I can't live like this,

Any-more, anymore, anymore
