Milo aka Rory Ferreira is an artist from Chicago. While you could restrict yourself and say that Milo is hip-hop, he really walks the line between rap and poetry. While Milo clearly sticks with a flow, it can often come off as if he’s sort of talking, sort of not. Regardless, his creativity shines through.
The samples he uses are recognizable, but warped into something new, changing up sounds from Bon Iver, The Wallflowers and others. His poetic and philosophical influences are evident and allow his storytelling to shine. He’s thoughtful, he’s clever, he’s funny, he’s capable of making pop-culture references without it sounding cheesy. What stands out is that he’s able to tell a story that’s obviously true to him yet relatable to his audience.
Check out Milo’s double EP, “Things that Happen At Day” and “Things That Happen At Night” below.
