Hailing from the Bay Area, 19 year-old Audrey Mika first rose to prominence as a YouTube sensation whose following has continued to grow with her unique covers of popular hits. She has amassed over 1 million YouTube subscribers who flock to check out her original material such as her two prior projects, 2018’s “Are We There Yet” and 2019’s “Level Up”, which she recorded entirely on GarageBand. She’s been called a “rising star’ by Paper Magazine and her original music was praised by Ones To Watch who called it “incredible”.

Nestled near the western edge of Schenectady County, Duanesburg might as well as be worlds away from the cosmopolitan hustle and bustle of New York City. However, the upstate town of 6,122 residents bears no shortage of inspiration with its elevated snowy vistas of both the Adirondack and the Catskill Mountains. “Growing up on top of a freakin’ mountain” amidst this rustic serenity, Souly Had constructs alternative hip-hop punctuated by off-kilter organic production and post-modern R&B drip.
Emerging from a decidedly “unlikely” setting, his future-facing style remains a quiet phenomenon bolstered by over 20 million total streams and a deal with Island Records in 2019.
“I was sitting in my friend’s attic in the middle of nowhere watching all of these artists blow up on the internet, and I said to myself, ‘I could do this’,” he recalls. “Duanesburg is a total hick town: boots, flannels, and parties in the woods. It’s definitely a weird place to try to rap. So, I put in my 10,000 hours over the past five years and hopefully I can inspire someone else now.”
At ten-years-old, rock initially called to Souly. On the radio, he discovered AC/DC, Metallica, and Nirvana. Grabbing a guitar, he learned how to play “Smoke on the Water” in addition to studying a Nevermind songbook. After hearing Mac Miller’s “Nikes on My Feet” online, he became an avowed fan and immersed himself hip-hop. During freshmen year of high school, he dove into producing and recording on Garage Band. Snowed in at home for two days, he cooked up his first EP, the aptly titled Snow Day, and went on to distribute it at school.
