If you love Rihanna, like I very much do, then she may have been your introduction to Mikky Ekko. Their song “Stay” from her recent album Unapologetic, is so solid…and all over the radio. Their performance of it at The Grammy’s was one of the stand outs for me – simple and beautiful.
Though “Stay” was Mikky’s first-charting material, he’s not new to the scene…just new to me. Born John Stephen Sudduth in Shreveport, Louisiana, the singer/songwriter and record producer has settled in Nashville and is signed to RCA Records.
His recently released EP Tracks has got it all for me, and “Pull Me Down” is perfect. Seductive songwriting with a sick beat? Done. I love the original track, but if you know me at all, you know I’m a remix lover to the core, and the Ryan Hemsworth Remix of “Pull Me Down” takes this already incredible track to another level. You should’ve seen the way I bounced around at 47 seconds when that beats kicks in for the first time. Good Lord, I love it so much!
