A year later in 2015, Ekko released his debut album, entitled, “Time”. Since then, he’s been touring across the world and performing at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Governor’s Ball to name a few. Now, he has opened a brand new chapter in his music career.

“The album is me finding my way through a labyrinth and the emotions I experienced along the way. Anyone can fake it. It’s easy to put on hats. Show people one thing and mime the rest. But at the end of the day, you have to look at yourself in the mirror and say this is who I am. Also, I wanted to give people access to who I am with this album.” – Mikky Ekko
