Originating from North Carolina, John Luke Carter began learning classical piano at the age of six, and turned his hand to guitar-playing and songwriting in adolescence. Drawing inspiration from the likes of John Mayer and Jackson Brown, it wasn’t until John-Luke relocated to Nashville after college that he adopted the name ‘Mokita’ and began applying his classical training to his work as a refined electronic producer. From here, he gained widespread attention online since he first released solo material in 2016, and with the glistening new single ‘Bad’, it seems that even more recognition is inevitable for Mokita.
