“It’s a melting pot,” says Mikey. “We pull from our collective influences. There could be a jazz vibe to the melodies, guitar rhythms from country, hip-hop production, or really alternative chord progressions. It’s a fusion.” “The fusion is emotionally driven more than anything else,” Scootie elaborates. “The sounds mirror whatever we’re feeling at the time.”
Both born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Mikey and Scootie initially struck a chord by sharing such feelings from behind-the-scenes. The musicians met by way of producer Tommy Brown, sharing a house and creative hub in Sherman Oaks, CA. Together with Brown, they collectively penned and produced multiplatinum number one smashes such as “thank u, next” and “7 Rings” for Ariana Grande’s blockbuster thank u, next.
