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.

This year, Apollo released single “LMSY” featuring Kenny Flowers. Written about his own personal experience with love and relationships. This single will be the lead single from his ‘We built a rocket’ EP which is an analogy for working on a relationship and Apollo’s journey and experience. Learning how to love can feel like rocket science sometimes. It could blast into orbit just as much as it explodes before ever breaching the atmosphere. “We Built a Rocket” is Apollo’s most honest, personal and vulnerable music yet giving him the opportunity to be more honest than he has ever been in any of his other music. This will be released October 2022.
