portrait of Mike Melinoe

Mike Melinoe

Mike Melinoe is a Detroit-native and Austin-based hip-hop artist, model and painter. One of the most enigmatic figures in the Texas music scene, Melinoe is known for his incomparable flow and psychedelic productions from projects such as CLAJIDU and BUKNEU. Sonically, Mike Melinoe is unrestricted in his creativity - tapping into R&B, pop, rock, etc. to curate a world that he lyrically weaves in themes of love, introspection, and intention.

With artistic roots drawing back to Andre 3000, Basquiat, and Lil Wayne, Melinoe is known for his energetic theatrics and stage presence which has been recently elevated with the addition of a live band.
