John Stephen Sudduth, aka Mikky Ekko, was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, son of a tar plant manager. Around age 7, his father became a preacher and relocated the family to Mississippi, moving frequently from small town to small town. Surrounded by southern gospel, poverty and the resilient past of the deep south, the roots of his own music began taking shape. Mikky then moved to the closest big city, Nashville, where he waded through various bands and odd jobs while surviving the dream. Despite the grind, Ekko continued to experiment with his writing and voice.
Due next year, Mikky's debut album for RCA sees him working with the likes of Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence + the Machine), Elof (Niki and the Dove), John Hill (M.I.A., Santigold), Dave Sitek (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Clams Casino.
