About Miguel Dakota:
Miguel is the lead singer of Denver-based rock band, Dream Feed. He is also a finalist from Season 9 of America’s Got Talent.
Miguel's first encounters with music came at an early age. His parents brought him to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival at just 10 days old. The festival which brought the music of B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, and Eric Clapton to the stage, left a lasting impact on Miguel's heart for music. At age 11, Miguel received his first guitar and began learning to play and write music.
During 2014, Miguel was a contestant and eventual finalist on NBC's Americas Got Talent. He covered such songs as The Beatles "Come Together", "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes, and "Billie Jean" By Michael Jackson. Miguel caught the attention of the masses with his soulful and heartfelt vocals. His fan base and social media following jumped to 10's of thousands seemingly overnight. After his first auditioned, Simon Cowell tweeted, "Miguel Dakota. A future star...". On the shows Finale episode, Miguel performed alongside the incredible Lenny Kravitz to Lenny's "American Woman".
Since then, Miguel has formed the band, Dream Feed, with lead guitarist and co-songwriter Ryan Wagner, bassist Will Gaines, and drummer Brian Nolan to create an infectious and up-lifting sound. Their music draws on the soulful sounds of the funk and blues-rock of the '70s and adds in meaningful and storied lyrics, all while maintaining a modern feel. The band put out their debut album in September of 2018 to much critical acclaim.
