Kentucky Native Johnnie Mikel is Making a Splash From LA to Nashville

Johnnie Mikel has already experienced more life before the age of 21 than most people do in their entire lives.  The singer/songwriter embarked in his journey in this world in Bowling Green, Kentucky.  From there he and his family moved to New York which Johnnie credits to opening his eyes to so much culture and diversity.  Johnnie has now released “Friday Night“, the follow up single to his successful debut EP Night of Your Life and is splitting his time between Nashville and Los Angeles.  When I got to chatting with Johnnie about his music I was floored at the level of conviction and self awareness he had.  It is so rare for someone to have such a deep understanding of their sense of self, never mind someone as young as Johnnie.
