Hey what’s up guys, this is MKTO! We just wrapped up our Ones to Watch with Skype Tour. So crazy to look back at all the incredible things that have happened. Thanks to our fans, we’ve had so many firsts this summer – first Top 10 hit with “Classic”, first Certified Platinum Single in the US, and we went on our first national headline tour. We also received our first nomination at the Teen Choice Awards!
We’ve had such a blast hanging out with you while on the road. We even got to hang with some familiar faces (Hey Courtney!), as well as some new ones over Skype, which was a great way to kick back during our time in Orlando. The legendary Jonny, who was our host for the day, even gave the lovely Jess a tour of the backstage area over Skype mobile and had her sing one of our tracks to help get us in the zone for the night’s performance. It’s been absolutely wild getting to meet you all!
Most people don’t know this but we’ve been writing songs together for years. Since we got signed by Columbia, we’ve spent over 2 years grinding it out with late nights in the studios, 4am call times for video shoots, morning TV, radio station visits – you name it. There’s no such thing as an “off day,” but we do it because we love it. And we do it because we’ve seen just how much our music has meant to all of you.
From the bottom of our hearts we just wanted to say thank you for all of your support. This has been a summer to remember and we wouldn’t be anywhere right now if it wasn’t for each and every one of you. Additionally, the photos you’ve seen in this post are from our favorite memories from this summer, compliments of the lovely Catherine Powell (catherinepowellphoto.com).
