Skuff Micksun comes from a diverse background of genres and after leaving Chicago, where he worked on films and commercial gigs as a prop/set designer as well as an Art Director, he’s been releasing a steady stream of music from his hometown in Cleveland, Ohio. His name came from his father, Mick who was his biggest motivation to create. His latest releases have been placed in a couple of upcoming movies and short films and his latest video for “Better Days” recently hit 150K views. He is excited to release his debut EP “Wrapped Up In Wind” with independent videos for each single!
“Wrapped Up In Wind” is a fresh take on a modern Indie rock sound combining atmospheric guitars and synths with hard-hitting drums and heavy basses! With past collaborations under their belt, Skuff asked TyC to produce the entire project. Skuffs’ unique tone and brilliant pen place this record in a genre of its own. Skuff flexes his spoken word roots while transitioning between catchy melodies and hardcore belts to give us quite the ride. The concept is simply his evolution over the last year and the lyrics are as honest as any will come. This record just tells it like it is.
“Psychic Vampire” by Skuff Micksun & TyC
Talented artists Skuff Micksun and TyC join forces to deliver the intoxicating and captivating sonic and visual experience that is “Psychic Vampires”. With this amazing collaboration, they paint a picture that speaks to us as it draws inspiration from the toxicity that at times can be found in a relationship. So listen closely and open up your eyes for there’s something in this soundscape that is sure to bring back memories of moments lived or seen before (or maybe currently). - WolfInASuit
“The video for Skuff Micksun's alt-folk pop-ified Strange is full of, well, strange going's on with people being sucked into another world, battling creatures and coming through sort of unscathed. The imagery is a lot of fun unless you are arachnophobic and the track itself with the kind of roots folk / meets dreamy pop and hip hop affectations (with doses of psychedelia) kind of felt like a blend of (oddly enough) The Strange Boys and Milky Chance and Cosmo Sheldrake (or not). The overall vibe is hard to pin to just one genre as it creates its own world. The attention to detail in the songwriting all the way to production really makes it a beautiful piece of music.” - Robb Donker (AmericanPancake)
“Today on Sensei's Music Blog, we get to help showcase the newest collaboration from Skuff Micksun and TyC entitled 'Psychic Vampires' - which starts with an eerily cascading guitar under Skuffs’ soaring opening melody. It doesn't take long for the song to take a turn into a background vocal laden chorus filled with dark sounds and strange tones.” - Sensei Music Blog
