Featuring a host of luminaries from the world of Soul & R&B, chart-topping songwriter and award winning producer Mike City presents new album ‘The Feel Good Agenda Vol.1’.
Earning his big break back in the year 2000 as writer and producer of a #1 hit in the form of ‘I Wish’ performed by Carl Thomas, Mike went on to work with Brandy, Rihanna, Angie Stone and Jamie Foxx as well as penning Sunshine Anderson’s smash hit ‘Heard It All Before’. Renowned for his deeply rooted, melodic production style and distinctive vocal arrangements, Mike City consistently finds himself in-demand from A-list hip hop, R&B and pop artists, as well as finding favor in dance music circles during recent years. Placing him inside their ‘Top 100 Soulful House Artists of 2016’, Traxsource declared Mike “one of the soulful scene’s most in-demand producers, singers and songwriters” and “a name synonymous with quality music, no matter the genre”.
A highly accomplished vocalist in his own right, ‘The Feel Good Agenda Vol.1’ sees Mike take centre stage, showcasing a selection of previously unreleased songs with a little help from his friends. Best described as R&B-infused dance music, the album boasts cameo vocal appearances from leading lights of the urban music scene including: Faith Evans, Lalah Hathaway, Dwele, Teedra Moses and the man whose voice kick-started Mike’s stellar career, Carl Thomas.
