New Zealand’s Mikey Dam is one of the exciting R&B singer-songwriters entering the various local scenes. Signed to Republic Records, he’s got the major label support needed to become a global sensation. His latest single “Time” is a good song that helps introduce him to newer audiences. It is the follow-up to “Needed Love” and “Barry Tone”.
The track’s indie-leaning acoustic style befits the raw, sentimental lyrics that Mikey delivers. Putting things into context, he says, “I went through a phase where I felt like I was running out of time.
“I also felt like that because I was super far away from family after moving away from hometown. My whole objective with moving to the big city was to accomplish a checkpoint I had in my head. I had mad paranoia about running out of time and not achieving what I wanted to achieve, and I thought I was going to let people down. That pressure was there. I also had people dying in my family, and family members getting locked up in prison. That changed my whole perspective of the value of time.”
