Rive 1

\For one man, humble beginnings is too grandiose a phrase to describe the life from where Mikel Knight emerged. But the rocky back story and tales of being a have-not is of no consequence when the path ahead is paved in pure gold. Mikel Knight’s journey from a kid with an affinity for good music to a man that created his own musical genre reads like a chapter from The Alchemist. He is a seeker, a visionary, a leader and an artist. He is organically grown and dedicated to being true to his cowboy roots. The man who was born to shake up the music industry and knock down the walls of conformity is armed with confidence and dangerous on the mic. Couple that with an army of cowboys dubbed the Maverick Dirt Road Street Team, and you have the formula for a takeover. So strap yourself in and get ready to experience the untamed life and voice of the Maverick of Music Row. This. Is. Mikel Knight.

When asked about his new project The Duke Boyz, ‘The Maverick’
 Mikel Knight had this to say.

“Besides my new album (Urban Cowboy, Where the City Meets the Country) I also have a group album coming out with the Duke Boyz, called Denim & Chrome. The group includes my brother KoolWhip from Austin Texas. Anywhere you’ve seen Mikel Knight, you’ve seen my brother Koolwhip. On stage, or in the videos, you can’t miss him. Also Nashville’s own Jellyroll, as well as myself, make up the remaining members of the Duke Boyz. This album is like a mixture of Brantley Gilbert, Lil John, and Mikel Knight. Add a little whiskey and some buckshot, and you got Denim & Chrome, due out this fall.”
