Mikey Brown

Bookings Expert

Hey everyone! I’m Mikey and I’m so excited to be joining the Encore family as a Bookings Expert. Music is everything to me and I cannot wait to share our passion together whilst delivering the best live experiences.

I’m originally from Crewe and I’ve been singing and performing from a tender age. Everything from Classical, Music Theatre to Indie and Soul has been and still is my world.
I studied Music Performance at the University of Westminster, performing in bands across the UK, playing a wide range of genres and I’m currently working on a Neo-Soul project.

Being part of Encore means so much to me. I think we can all look back and remember moments watching live music performances, and those memories last a lifetime. Our aim is to provide that experience to all our customers and create a community where musicians are treated fairly and feel empowered.

If I’m not writing tracks or lyrics you will most likely find me either in the gym, at a gig or enjoying a quality pint (open to decent pub suggestions).

Here are 3 tracks that I am loving at the moment!

  • Loyle Carner – Sun of Jean ft. Mum, Dad. This stunning track brings back the art of old school hip-hop lyrics with a British twist. The track is sampled from Loyle’s late Fathers album and finishes with a verse from his Mum.
  • Kayatranda – You’re the one. This is just an absolute floor filler, one for a few drinks with some good mates.
  • Sweet Female Attitude – Flowers. No list is complete without this banger.
