Mikey Xodus

With 25 years of experience under his belt, recording artiste Mikey Xodus has high hopes that he will leave an indelible mark in the music industry.

"Thousands of musical souls including myself embark on this journey with hopes of making it in the entertainment world and for me, my goal is to share my passion with as many people as possible," he told the Jamaica Observer.

Mikey Xodus is still promoting his latest single titled Feels Like Magic. Produced by DonBass Music Production, the track was officially released on June 10.

The producer Don T not only composed the track but also played the bass and keyboards. Other noted contributions include world-renowned musicians Sly Dunbar on drums and Dean Fraser on saxophone. Song vocals were recorded by Hugh Campbell out of Studio Max Records and the song was mixed and mastered by Rohan Dwyer.

Currently based in Atlanta, Georgia, the Clarendon native added that the track has been receiving favourable reactions.

"Going by what I've read so far via social media, it's clear that people are relating and loving the song," he said.

"My goal is for it to reach as many music lovers as possible; not only lovers of reggae music but anyone who appreciates good music," the artiste added.

The accompanying music video was directed by Bloozick Filmworks.

The Clarendon native released other projects including the release of his debut album in 2019, No Illusion, that includes cover versions of Anne Murray's You Needed Me and Don Williams' I Believe In You. He has also released a thrilling cover of Billy Ocean's Suddenly and an original song titled Tell Me How You Want It.

The entertainer has an EP in the works. In the meantime, he has a few words of advice for up-and-coming acts.

"If music is in your heart, then try and look beyond the external validation and find the passion and drive within," he said.
