#PeepTheVisual: Michael Stokes – “Lay Back Down”

Rising artist Michael Stokes‘ new  single, “Lay Back Down,” from his debut EP combines a sultry, soulful sound with riffs and hip hop undercurrents making it a seamless fit for today’s musical landscape.

Stokes grew up in the town of Benton Harbor, Michigan where he and his brother were first exposed to the music of their father, a talented saxophonist.  Listening to and writing music was a part of the family routine.  Over the last several years, Mstokes — as he calls himself — spent countless hours working with both established and up-and-coming artist.

He was featured on Flo-Rida’s “American Superstar” and Gucci Mane’s  “Money Machine” featuring Rick Ross.

“ We work, that’s what we here to do,” Michael says, reflecting on his extensive collection – over 2000 recordings.  He is currently working on completing his new project to be released this fall.  Peep the visual at the top of the post and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
