NASHVILLE, Tenn. —Breakout, indie country recording artist Mikayla Lane (Mikayla Lane Entertainment/Tulsa, OK), dubbed “Today’s Traditional Country Trendsetter,” celebrates the release of her sophomore EP titled, MILES FROM NOWHERE.* Featuring four original tunes, the project is AVAILABLE NOW via all digital retail outlets and streaming platforms (Amazon/iTunes/Pandora Spotify/Tidal).
Penned and co-produced by the songstress (alongside John Conrad), the EP is the second release since the launch of her music career. The musical compilation embraces the 16-year-old’s three loves: a love for her hometown, her music and her beau. The tracks highlight the young entertainer’s diverse prowess, and embrace a range of smooth melodies complemented by simplistic production and upbeat, powerful vocals. Setting the stage for the recordings, Mikayla introduced the lead single “Wild Like The Wind” which has met with early welcome from streaming platforms, country radio and fans alike.
Sequel tunes: “Come Home,” reveals a young girl’s passion for the road and home, and the tug between the two; “Love You Like I Want To” portrays an unrequited love; while the nostalgic track, “Where The Foxtail Grows,” spotlights a picturesque recollection of Mikayla’s upbringing and southern lifestyle.
“We recorded the project in Tulsa; it was one of the most enjoyable recording experiences to date. I feel like I found my sound in recording this project” said Mikayla. “I think overall, the music is aesthetically pleasing to the ear; the production is simplistic and the vocals are subtle yet strong. We tried to incorporate an authentic western sound with modern twists; the production is like a canvas of wide open fields and lonely deserts.”
The “Wild Like The Wind” music video premiered on The Country Network (TCN) earlier this week. Paralleling the authentic western soundscape of the single, the clip offers viewers a cinematic peek-see into Mikayla’s life and lifestyle in Oklahoma. Shot on the family ranch in Mannford, OK (produced by Mikayla Lane Entertainment with Mikayla overseeing the creative), wide open scenic spaces carry two young lovers on horseback to paint the canvas for the realistic and lifelike storyline.
Mikayla is also slated to appear on “The Spiel” (Fox), “Live From The Couch” and “On The Rise” (The Country Network) in the coming weeks.
