serpentwithfeet

serpentwithfeet is not only imagining, but exploring a world wherein Black love is paramount. His new album, DEACON, is “a study rather than a story,” delving into Black, gay love and the tenderness present in the best companionships, romantic or otherwise.

DEACON highlights serpent’s growth as a songwriter, taking a more straightforward approach to expression. Spending time with pop songwriters and observing how they traverse language encouraged serpent to take more risks lyrically.

Raised by religious parents in Baltimore, serpent’s flair for theatrical themes and gospel sensibilities can be traced to the Black church, a place where the artist had his earliest experiences with glamour and the ornate. Well-executed vocal flourishes and the implementation of a quickening vibrato are just a few of the skills he picked up during his time in a Pentecostal choir. He proudly follows in the tradition of R&B artists whose gifts were helmed in the church, and he approached DEACON with an undeniable passion and reverence for the genre.

In his love for love, serpentwithfeet is offering a look into the soul of a man who articulates his passion in a warmer, gentler way. He’s become wholly confident in his gift and messaging on DEACON, which is to be expected when one gives vent to maturity. Through his music, he allows compassion to be the backbone of his art, as he communes with his most loving self.


Apollo Mighty

Apollo Mighty is an R&B/Soul artist based out of Chicago in the United States. Originally from Memphis, TN, from a young age Apollo had a strong passion for music.

“Music was the first thing that I gave myself that gave itself back to me. There was just always something about the marriage of melody and emotion that captivated me. I can still remember jingles from when I was 3 because they had meaning to me. Discovering ways to create that relationship between word, sound, and emotion has always challenged and excited me. So much that I study it and am able to experiment. Music gives me a place to feel safe and free and playful. Creating music feels like alignment to me. It lifts me.”

In 2020, Apollo released his EP project “Behavior” which amassed over 600,000+ streams across platforms. “Behavior” was well received and reviewed by both critics and fans. It was featured on multiple official Spotify playlists; including “Fresh Finds” and “Fresh Finds: The Wave”, Apple Music playlist “Future Hits”, Youtube Music’s “RELEASED” and Tidal’s “New Suggested Tracks” and “New Albums” for R&B/Soul. More features included; KISS FM, CS Magazine, Raynbow Affair Magazine, Sounds So Beautiful, Alfitude, Dynmk, IndieShuffle, h-wing, CaesarLivenLoud, Yellow & Black to name a few.

His previous releases “Solid Gold”, “Forbidden Fruit” and “Let Go” have amassed hundreds of thousands of streams on Spotify alone and have been featured on multiple official Spotify playlists such as “Fresh Finds” and “Fresh Finds: The Wave”. 

Apollo has been performing live all over Chicago during the past two years, and was featured on the Chicago daytime show “Windy City LIVE” in 2019 where he performed “Solid Gold”. During the pandemic he did a virtual LIVE performance for AudioTree.

Apollo is the epitome of pure R&B/Soul vocals, and delivers both classic and new styled songs. Apollo Mighty’s sound has been described as “a mix of John Legend and Kid Cudi” and “The Weeknd meets Frank Ocean”.

May 2021, Apollo released his first single of the year a soulful, chill R&B/Pop track called ‘SMILE’. Check it out here
