Underground Artist of the Month for June 2023


Mk.gee or Michael Gordon, is a quickly rising artist and producer in the LA music scene.  Born in New Jersey, he took an interest in music from an early age, taking piano lessons when he was only 6 years old; and eventually playing guitar from 11 onward.  A chance to go to the USC Thornton School of Music led to Gordon’s migration to California, and his immersion into the diverse music scene there.  It seems this is where he started to experience and experiment with more soulful influences. 

His debut song, “I know how you get” in 2017, and the debut album “Pronounced McGee” in 2018 immediately caught the attention of listeners and critics.  Praised for seamlessly combining musical influences, and expressing a wild emotional palette, many have marked him as an artist to look out for as a force in the coming years. 

He has also honed his skills as a producer, recently earning himself co-writing and production credits with the likes of Drake, Travis Scott, and The Kid Laroi.
