While today's music market has become saturated with fresh young hopefuls, discovering a musical prodigy like recording artist, songwriter and dancer Myko (Meeko) is a rare find. Ambitious, poised and blessed with a unique sound, this Atlanta gem is prepared for global domination. With the city of Atlanta overflowing with exceptional talent from the likes of Outkast, TLC, Usher, Ne-Yo, Trey Songz and many more, the common thread amongst all these chart-toppers is their success in changing the face of popular music for today and the future.
Born and raised in Atlanta, GA, Myko, born Alvin Sharpe, got his start in the acoustic halls of the church. With a forceful tone and impressive vibrato, the unique sound of this budding superstar was discovered at a very early age. And, credits his father for his musical motivation. “I would say my father was my first inspiration.” Myko reflects on his inception into music. “He was a gospel singer..and I would attend his shows and carry the equipment around...that's when I first fell in love with singing”. Inspired by legendary musicians like the Manhattan’s, Stylistics, Temptation's, Donny Hathaway, Michael McDonald and Phil Collins, this tall vocalist has managed to infuse his love of the 70’s into his uniquely crafted sound “I would describe my sound as Urban Pop.” Myko explains “A fusion of urban sounds over Pop beats or vice versa. my voice is very traditional so the transition comes naturally to me.”
Making the decision to put his love of music and performing into the forefront, a chance meeting with Kansas City Chief's Thomas Jones, changed both their lives forever when Jones enlisted Myko for his Independently Major record company as his star artist. After traveling the globe working with the such impressive acts like Jason Derulo, the late Static Major, the Underdogs, Cool & Dre and more, Myko developed a strong knowledge of songwriting and vocal arrangements. Add to that great records like "Take It Low" featuring Diamond (Crime Mob) Pop smash “Nothing I Won’t Do,” and Atlanta heat seeker “OK OK” produced by Cool & Dre and featuring Atlanta’s own Future, and it’s clear destiny has begun to make Myko a worldwide star.
A budding brand in his own right, Myko’s model type looks, and abilities in music, both singing and dancing, is preparing the “OK OK” star to rise all the way to the top.
