Still working on that hot first release.



Mykah Adams is far more than the feisty little Southern belle she initially appears to be. She has an undeniable passion for music; not only as a hobby, but as a way of life. There is no doubt that her childhood played a large role in this love and appreciation for music. Mykah was born in Mableton, Georgia, but spent much of her childhood in Valdosta on her grandparents' cattle farm. Her Papa and father were preachers, and she began singing at church by the ripe old age of two; her first song was “Nothing but the Blood of Jesus.” At age four, she began playing piano, which is now her favorite instrument to play. At age ten, her Nana gave her a very special gift: her first guitar. It was a burgundy and black Johnson and she dragged it everywhere she went. Her Papa passed shortly before her seventh birthday, and she found that her strength would come, not only from God, but from the lessons her Papa taught her when she was a child. As Mykah grew older, she listened to many types of music, but was always drawn back to true country, the only thing that would soothe and encourage her. She has said that true country makes her feel as though her Papa is still there with her in her songs.

Her motivation is very much based on the grounded southern roots of being a preacher's daughter (and granddaughter), giving her a confidence and presence that is impossible to ignore. Spending many of her childhood years on a cattle farm, she also attained an irreplaceable, down to earth personality and unbridled creativity. Any child that has the opportunity to grow up in such an innocent and beautiful environment has no choice but to be filled with with a free spirit and beautiful imagination. With her creativity and vivid imagination, however, comes a twinge of brutal honesty. Her words come from the heart, which may or may not have gotten her in trouble a time or two. Mykah's honesty, creativity, passion, and obvious talent all mesh together to create a true artist that is both genuine and versatile. She has a rare knack for sitting down with a piece of notebook paper or a used napkin (Hey, Southern girls ain't picky), and a pen, and pouring her heart and soul into her lyrics. Whether she writes a song about heartache, heartbreak, a few too many drinks, or her duck named Walter, one thing is for certain: each word will be 100% from the heart and 100% Mykah Adams.

The love for music that fuels Mykah’s motivation dates back to when she was a toddler. She remembers wearing her Papa’s cowboy boots and learning to ride a tractor for the first time, all the while belting out hymnals loud enough to overcome the sound of the tractor. Since she began singing in front of crowds in church at such a young age, Mykah is completely void of this thing people call “stage fright.” It's almost as if being on stage brings her to life and takes her closer to her potential as an artist and performer. Whether she is playing her guitar standing on top of her parents’ coffee table or singing in front of thousands, she still gets the same infectious smile and wild spark in her eye that screams, “this is what I am meant to do.” The stage presence she possesses is just the beginning of the way she captures the audience. Once she begins to sing, jaws drop, and this is no over exaggeration. Mykah is 5’1”, weighs a buck fifteen soaking wet, and the power of her vocal chords is absolutely breathtaking.
Even though Mykah may sing about “setting a town on fire” with her friends “Jack and Jim,” she would love nothing more than to end her performances with a red back hymnal to pay tribute to her roots. She says her dearest memories are from her Papa, her backbone is from her Nana, her strength is from her mom, and her solid ground and drive for success are from her dad. Her family remains supportive of her dream and each day she feels a step closer to making it come true. When asked if she believed her dream of becoming a country star was attainable, Mykah responded, without skipping a beat: “Country is not merely a hobby for me, but it is the well from which I can draw those things from the past that were, and are, so near and dear to my heart. I believe that through prayer, dedication and hard work that dreams can actually come true. All things have a perfect timing. And it’s about dang time Country came back to what it’s supposed to be.” And what is that, exactly? “It’s a simple way of life with shotguns, pig farms, and everything fried and covered in cane syrup!” With a laugh, she finishes, “It’s raw and pure, like a simple dirt road leading to a pasture. It should be both calming and invigorating, and fully from the heart. Less Hollywood; more dirt roads.”

The heartfelt “true country” approach she’s taking appears to be working. Her music career has recently begun to take off. With the help of a great band, she pulled together three original songs and recorded her first EP at Ocean Way in Nashville, Tennessee. Only a month after getting out o
