Micko is a rapper, singer, songwriter and record producer from Ireland. He began writing music at age thirteen and posted his first song online three years later, in 2016. He has since released two EPs – ‘Thought Process’ and ‘Twenty Twenty’ – and over eighty songs, which have amassed over half a million streams. He is currently releasing a new song every second Friday.
He blends modern hip-hop production and subject matters with a distinct songwriting method that places densely packed lyrics at the forefront of importance. Confident, refined vocal deliveries help him deliver a sense of determination, confidence and honesty through each track. This approach is characteristic of the message he spreads, which is one that inspires motivation and encourages self-belief.
Micko has written, engineered, mixed and mastered every song in his catalogue, and since 2019 has also produced every song.
His progression and growth are constant and can be heard throughout his catalogue, the entirety of which can be found on websites SoundCloud and YouTube, which were the platforms that helped launch his career.
By producing, writing, engineering, mixing and mastering all of his own music, as well as creating each song’s artwork, he has developed his sound and style without much outside involvement. He sees this as an invaluable piece of his journey as both an artist and person, allowing him to connect with his work, creativity and purpose on a deeper level, ensuring every song is true-to-self and aligns with his message.
His songs have been played and featured on many publications, blogs, playlists and radio stations, including Ireland’s largest, RTÉ.
