Hello everybody! I’m M Pike a singer/songwriter born in Italy with origins from Dominican Republic. My passion for music starts really early, composing the first songs at the age of 10 ,growing up performing in different cities to make my voice known. My music range from pop to r & b, soul and more. I love mixing and experimenting different genres to make up my unique style but what really characterizes me are the positive messages of change contained in my lyrics. From Milan till Greece, Egypt and U.K. my performances are full of passion and energy and people definitely feel it. So i invite you to join me on the 16th May at 3 PM to feel this vibrant energy with your own ears, spending great time together and contributing for a good cause.
My first album i bought was Scream from Tokio Hotel. They were a huge inspiration in my childhood learning how to play guitar and drums thanks to their songs. My favorite song and the one i suggest you is Ready, Set, Go!
Whatever it takes because tell about the adrenaline and the willingness to do whatever is needed to make dreams come true. I wish to had written this to inspiring many people with this powerful lyrics.
One song that inspires me at the moment is Thank you by Maejor from his recent album Vol 1: Frequency. He integrate healing frequencies like 432hz to make his listeners makes feel really good listening his songs.
I more often stream songs but the last one i purchased was Back To Love of Chris Brown because i really loved it.
I remember i was crying of joy listening this song in 2007 so i would say the song makes me feel nostalgic about that times is Reach Up For The Sunrise by Duran Duran.
Right now my favorite song to sing under the shower is Blinding Lights of The Weeknd. I love the 80’s vibes from this song. Because i was obsessed of singing it i decided to do the cover with my style that you can check on my YouTube Channel, just search Blinding Lights cover by M Pike.
The song i’m choosing for this question is Lions by Skip Marley the nephew of Bob Marley because represent the movement to change the world with music and LOVE. Our generation is the chosen one to do it. I definitely feel that music is my purpose to make this planet a better place so i recognize myself in that song.
Definitely 24k Magic of Bruno Mars puts me in the mood to be ready to do everything i want on a big night out. Like the cool guy that will take all the attentions lol.
I’m the type of guy that takes life easy , accepting the situation but if i should choose i would select Corazon by Maluma because it’s the closer to my way of react to this situation.
Nice question with this one i choose SexyBack of Justin Timberlake with Timbaland , it’s a classic for this genre but always working. Puts you in the mood to make new adventures.
Was a pleasure to be here! Looking forward to see you all at my virtual gig on the 16th May at 3PM to contribuite for War Child UK
