Mikky Ekko is coming to Vancouver on Tuesday, October 6 with guests and will be performing in Venue.
Ekko’s belief in music’s transformative power was instilled in him at a young age. He was born John Stephen Sudduth in Shreveport, Louisiana, the son of a tar plant manager turned minister. Ekko grew up in the church, which he considered “a reverent space.“ “Sometimes I’d sit in the sanctuary and sing by myself for a while,” he says. Ekko bounced around Georgia and Mississippi with his family, eventually winding up in Tupelo where he attended high school and sang in the choir. He grew up listening to classical music (thanks to his mom) and classic rock (thanks to his dad), and began imitating R&B singers like Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson as a teen, “because I realized I could do runs,” he says.
