Some years ago Makk Mikkael was one of the many teens obsessing over Taylor Swift. The blend of pop and country spoke volumes to her. Swift was not only inspired to start singing, but she soon picked up a guitar and started posting covers on YouTube. While country was where she spent her early teens, she moved onward. She notes of her style now, “I’m happy I’ve found my sound. I’m inspired by the Toronto R&B scene and I feel like my music represents where I’m currently at right now.” Now is where we are and we’re talking about her latest single “How It Feels,” her time in Los Angeles, and next steps.
