Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Mike De'Cole first single "Lost Without You" takes us back to a time when R&B songs were created with real instruments by real musicians. A time when songwriters wrote about love, pain and joy instead of promiscuity, drugs and the degrading of women.

Born and raised on the south side of Chicago is where Mike De'Cole first heard and fell in love with music. Realizing he had a gift to sing he started listening to other greats and working on his craft.

He wrote his first song that was about heartbreak of a past love titled "Lost Without You" that gained him some notoriety. His song was heard on Reverdnation by Verizon Mobile and offered him a chance to perform at the Chicago talent showcase at Buddy Guys Legends as well as the opportunity to perform at 2013 Essence Festival.

In 2016 Mike released his debut album in title of 'So It Was Written', which received great reviews and exceeded his fans expectations. It was during the same year that Mike was discovered by The World Academy of Arts, Literature and Media (WAALM) and got introduced to the best-selling author and renowned Canadian songwriter, Mosi Dorbayani. ‘When I'm with You', a song written by Mosi was Mike's first international collaboration, which captured the attentions of European and North American R&B fans as targeted. Mike's skillful vocal deliverance of ‘When I’m with You’ qualified him to get featured on CBC Music Radio in Canada and BBC Music in London.

"… I believe in professionalism and dedication of Mike De'cole, the R&B rising star, whose skillful smoky voice speaks for itself. He works on his music like a craftsman and is a dedicated professional. says Mosi Dorbayani, SOCAN/ASCAP.

In May 2017, WAALM officially signed up the vocal artist of excellence, Mike De'cole, to team up with Mosi Dorbayani, the critically acclaimed international songwriter to record this EP album in title of ‘May, and Everything After’.

In 2018 Mike teamed up with Grammy Award winning artist Jamecia Bennett Of Sounds Of Blackness to write a beautiful soulful ballad titled Man 4 Me that won the USA Songwriter competition, he is now preparing to release his 2nd project titled Simply Wonderful in the UK but releasing a EP of 4 songs here in the states to get his fan base engaged again and he’s ready for his return.
