Twenty-one year-old Mikey Ambrosino (MyKey) is a solo singer-songwriter from Rockville, Maryland. He has spent the last two years crafting his debut album, Faces, which he released in August of 2017.

All vocals and instrumentation on Faces are done and recorded by Mikey. He also studio engineered his project, learning from his studio mentor and boss of 6 years, Tom Mindte of Patuxent Music.

While working under Tom Mindte, Mikey was predominantly exposed to and helped record Bluegrass and Old-Time music, from which he began to draw inspiration, and eventually combined these genres with his own interests in Rock and Pop. The blend of Pop/Rock and Folk/Bluegrass influences created a unique musical experience that is showcased in Faces.

MyKey plans to release his second project in the summer of 2018.

FEATURE FRIDAY: TALLY

Occasionally we are blessed with the gift of great music that is born of human experience particularly trials and tribulations. International recording artist Tally has translated her life experiences into pervasive, powerful and consequential tunes that can make audiences tap their toes or swoon in throes of pure romance and wonder. Oftentimes we say that people have an old soul. Tally’s deep, urban, gritty, melodic tunes eagerly remind us that she has that magical ability to craft music that the audience feels.

 

 

Be warned. This is not two-bit synthesized music created on a drum machine. This is real music that is poised to speak to a nation of true music fans.

Tally spent several years touring the Eastern seaboard wowing audiences with her passionate singing, writing and performances. The Montclair New Jersey area was where this world class artist spent her formative years after being adopted from Russia at 4 months old.

She channeled the tragedy of the death of her best friend Max to suicide into a song entitled, “Forbidden Land”. Tally now resides in the Washington, DC area, a town known for its legendary roster of musical talent including Roberta Flack, Chuck Brown, Duke Ellington and Donnie Hathaway just to name a few. Tally is poised to join this awesome assemblage of musical titans. The world will soon know one name that is synonymous with greatness.
