MUSIKANTO walks the line between Indie-Blues and Urban Americana, while borrowing elements of Experimental Folk and Broken-down Orchestral music. Growing up listening to his father's obscure folk & roots records he was taught music through the likes of Fraser and Debolt and Jerry Hahn. With heartbreaking ballads and melodic melodrama, Musikanto's songs have the grind of a Chicago winter and the soul of a Midwestern bon-fire.. it’s as sincere as it gets.
With an honest comparison, MUSIKANTO carries the lyrical weight of folks like Leonard Cohen, the back road sense of Leon Russelland the driving tone of Ray Lamontagne or Amos Lee. His narratives rattle the core of the human spirit leaving you feeling like an outsider who witnessed something very real.
