A combination of traditional soul and modern R&B/pop flair, Mikey Jose’s familiar yet novel sound has been turning heads internationally and catching the attention of major global talent since his debut single release, “Stay @ Home,” in 2019. His debut EP, Hindsight, released in late 2020 gained him global recognition, receiving local and global radio play, including spins from Swedish P3 national radio. Mikey’s signature soulful vocals and elegant runs have also caught the attention of major soul/R&B names through his Instagram channel, including Allen Stone, Jeremy Passion, and DeAndre, and has helped him land collaborations with rising international stars, such as Sam Wills and Giacomo Turra.
Mikey and his band, known as Mikey Jose and The Bungalow, have performed sold-out shows at Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, opened for NYC soul-pop rising stars like Lawrence, and packed local music festivals, including Vancouver Mural Festival, Winter Arts Fest, and Shipyards Festival. His high-energy set at Vancouver Mural Festival set was praised by Virgin Radio, who described the performance as “[bringing] the house down.” Mikey is currently pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience at the University of British Columbia to understand the power of music in medicine.
