In this inaugural episode I chat with the incredible Mykal Kilgore. Mykal's debut full-length release, A Man Born Black, which has earned him an NAACP Image Awards nomination for Outstanding New Artist, is a stunning, groove-based exploration of faith, loss, blackness and the trials of love.

Mykal became a viral sensation for for his gospel-themed song “Reclaiming My Time” based on the statement made popular by famed Congresswoman Maxine Waters. He has appeared on Broadway in Hair and Motown the Musical and television audiences have seen him as part of the casts of Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert and The Wiz Live! After touring as a lead vocalist for the popular music collective Post Modern Jukebox for several years, he left after being asked not to wear his Black Lives Matter pin on stage.
