A long time ago, in a Steve far far away, Mike and Huey were out in the trenches, fighting together to get to the top.
Now, if you like hearing from the day ones, then you’re in luck this week. Mike first found Huey through Kilmer. And when they both saw Huey’s music getting a buzz from over the hill, they decided to reach out and collaborate. The opportunity to make music together would result in a friendship that has lasted over half a decade.
Huey grew up in Morgantown, West Virginia, in a single-parent household. He would discover hard work at a young age from his mom, who provided for them by working three jobs. It was from this learned mix of perseverance and grit that Huey’s sound took shape. When he was 18, he dropped the “Wish Me Luck” mixtape, followed by several successful Soundcloud releases that gained widespread attention.
Fast forward to where Huey’s career is now. Through several headlining tours and red-eye flights, Huey decided to base himself out of Los Angeles. Since then, he has worked with the likes of Cisco Adler, Afrojack, Bone Thugs and Harmony, Twista, Tony Lake, and many more. He is continually challenging himself and tweaking his sound to make himself the best he can be.
This week, Mike, Kilmer, Foley, and Huey will relive the glory days. There will be reflections on what they’ve learned since their early days in music, as well as some hilarious stories you cannot miss. Above all, you’ll learn Huey keeps going, no matter what life throws at him.
