Michael Stokes – Lay Back Down

Emerging artist Michael Stokes dropped the video for his new single  “Lay Back Down,” a song produced by Vandal & Luccie Fontane for Honorable Court from his forthcoming EP. The song combines a sultry, soulful sound with riffs and hip hop undercurrents making it a seamless fit for today’s musical landscape.

In the clip, Stokes is in the doghouse after his love interest finds a suspicious, “other woman” in his phone. But after the couple talks it out, she eventually comes around and the pair “lay back down” for an intimate evening.

Michael grew up in Benton Harbor, Michigan where he and his brother were first exposed to the music of their father, a talented saxophonist.  Listening to and writing music was a part of the family routine.

Over the last several years, Mstokes — as he calls himself — spent countless hours working with both established and up-and-coming artist. He was featured on Flo-Rida’s “American Superstar” and Gucci Mane’s  “Money Machine” featuring Rick Ross.

“We work, that’s what we here to do,” Michael says, reflecting on his extensive collection – over 2000 recordings.  He is currently working on completing his new EP to be released this fall.
