ABOUT APOLLO MIGHTY 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.”
