The music of Nashville artist Mokita is extremely grounded and relatable. Despite its sweeping and sometimes otherworldly qualities, the artist finds a way to create music which soars past bias and preference to find residence within hearts. Perhaps it his small town roots in Cullowhee, North Carolina, or perhaps it is modest beginnings working within a small church as he was trained in classical piano. Whatever the reason, the artist appears to be fully equipped to stake claim to a proper pop following.
On “Take it Back”, the artist fires on all cylinders, jumping between pop sub-genres like a decorated Olympian. In days of uncertainty and fear, his music offers a reprieve and a reminder of the good out there. It makes moments and days just a little more bearable, and this may be his greatest gift as a songwriter.
