Chesapeake's Mykal Allen visits Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday

Mykal Allen
Hunter At Sunrise welcomes another area emerging artist this Sunday as Mykal Allen visits the show for the first time. His bio on Reverbnation is very short and intriguing...

"Mykal's shows are usually filled with awkward greetings, corny jokes, and honest-to-earth lyrics. His original songs started off as a branch of his poetry, and the lyrics are still heavily influenced by and often written from the spoken word of his youth. Mykal has spent a life travelling, and will definitely be on the road soon to low key venue near you."

Hope you will join us for a live acoustic session with Mykal Allen this Sunday morning on Hunter At Sunrise.  For more about Mykal Allen, Click

They craft simple songs that go beyond chord progressions and vocal harmonies, leading somehow toward something pure."
