Growing up in church Mrklynik started playing the drums and had done his first real life recording session at the faith dome in Los Angeles by the age of 10… By the age of 18 Mrklynik was playing 6 instruments fluently Drums/trombone/bass/organ/piano/keyboard, and was gearing up for his first US tour with Fantasia Barrino and Kanye west, As years have passed Mrklynik has toured and shared the stage or been a huge part of the live show for artists such as Chaka Khan Charlie Wilson Jlo The Backstreet Boys Keyshia Cole Estelle among others. Currently Javad “Mrklynik” Day is gearing up for a 2month tour with Jerimiah he plays for Keyshia Cole and serves as assistant to musical director Kevin Randolph on that gig. He is also the MUSICAL DIRECTOR for Grammy winning artist Ciara who just did a sold out US tour and is preparing for an Overseas Leg as well.


Javad credits his sound to the wonderful Kirlin Cable quality, “When I first heard them I was on tour with Estelle and Tarron Crayton (Bassist) had a crazy leopard one but the depth of the sound threw me” “I got in contact with Luis and the rest is history I threw all my cables away in my home studio where I cut drums often and vocals, and I had them request Kirlin Cables in all my tour rigs. The thing is I needed a cable that could do it all because I wear many hats… On KEYSHIA I play bass as well as aux parts, on Jeremiah I play key bass, but on Ciara I’m playing Piano and synths... I needed a cable that I wouldn’t have to worry about; Kirlin is just the best period. THE BEST THING IS THEIR design is so cool I love when an artist comes to my studio and sees the white or cheetah cables! Go Kirlin!!"
