Introduction to the series
Welcome to a new series on Proudly dedicated to showcasing the amazing array of talented LGBTQ+ artists in the music industry today.
Each article we will be sharing a new singer who has reached out to us who we feel our readers will relate to and will hopefully love their music.
Music as a whole can be subjective and is the most diverse artistry in the world. So we are going to bring you a variety of different artists from all different backgrounds, music genres and stories.
Our fifth music artist is the pansexual pop performer that is Mike Taveira, who has today released his latest single and stunning breakup single: ‘Karma‘.
Introducing Mike Taveira
Los Angeles-based Mike Taveira made a splash earlier this year with his pansexual pop anthem, “Curious,” which grabbed the attention of tastemakers like Billboard Pride, Gay Times, and PRIDE.
Growing up without any openly pansexual figures to look up to, Taveira knew that his personal journey needed to be expressed through his own music.
In each of the three singles he has released so far, “Heart,” “Curious,” and, now, “Karma,” Taveira showcases his infectious R&B-pop sensibilities while tackling the complexities and vulnerability of sexual identity. With an underlying message that preaches to be true to yourself, whoever you love, whatever you identity as, and whatever life throws your way, Taveira is set to become a force in the evolution of queer pop music.
“I do believe in karma and I do believe she is coming“
Today, Mike Taveira is releasing his new single/video, “Karma.” Pairing poetic lyricism with contemporary R&B vocals and catchy hooks, Taveira delivers serious pop prowess on his latest release.
“Karma” is the breakup anthem for anyone who feels like their ex has yet received the karma they deserve. It’s for those of us who have been left broken and questioning the entire relationship, only for our ex-partner to seemingly move along in the world with no trouble. “I do believe in karma and I do believe she is coming. She just likes to wait for the perfect timing and I was impatient, which led to the song,” Taveira writes.
The pairing video, which was created in collaboration with Canada’s Drag Race star Lemon, showcases how it feels when karma just won’t give you a break: “We wanted to have a simple but effective video to showcase how it feels to constantly receive karma on your end and the result came to dodgeballs being decked at my face.“
