Since settling into New Orleans in 2012 Mikayla has made the city her stage, performing everywhere from the streets of the French Quarter to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Her music is often described as soul infused pop with a jazzy twist, with lyrics that resonate across generations. Mikayla's sensitive and powerful vocal delivery matched with her electric stage presence draws audiences in to make any venue feel intimate, whether she is performing solo or with her full band. Her latest EP Synapse is available on all major platforms and at local New Orleans record shops.
