CFA Mike is an up and coming independent singer, songwriter and rapper who made his professional solo recording debut in 2021 with the single “Latina”. That track introduced a genre-fluid artist who mixes r&b, pop and hip-hop into a chilled and often trippy sound. His songs incorporate both live and sampled instruments to create a nice organic vibe.
Since his debut, the prolific CFA Mike has dropped two albums, an EP and nearly a dozen singles. He has connected with fans around the world on tracks like “Indoors” and “Don’t Play Fair”. On his latest single, the Dallas native drops a heartbroken torch song.
“Glory” is the brand new single from CFA Mike, released worldwide via all major streaming services on October 1, 2022. Ethereal keys and guitar paint the edges of the mix. CFA Mike steps to the mic with a soulful slow jam serenade. A chill trap beat drops as he sings the praises of the object of his unrequited affection. Autotune background vocal harmonies and ambient synths create a psychedelic mood.

Where are you from?

How long have you been making music?
It will officially be two years in November.

My biggest influence would be my brother CFA Ced and JuiceWrld, I honestly wouldn’t be in this world if it wasn’t for their music.

What inspired you to create this project?
I’ve been through my fair share of heartbreaks and they all haunt me mentally so I try to express that pain on this song to show you can be vulnerable and heal in your own way.
What are your plans for the future (musically)?
I’m currently working on a mixtape that I hope opens people’s eyes to my music in a creative and relatable sense.
Is there anything else you would like to say?
I don’t make music to get fame or money or women. I’m here to help out the next person who isn’t able to relay the feelings they have or who doesn’t want to seek help. I want to be that artist that stops tragedies from happening and make the world a brighter place!
