At just 18 years old, mxmtoon has been making waves in the Oakland folk scene since she started releasing sleepy bedroom singles in 2017. Her latest tune, “i feel like chet” is as much an ode to her influences as it is a step into the next generation (bonus points if you can figure out who “Chet” is). With just a soft uke and sweet voice, mxmtoon brings a refreshing flavor of optimism to the future of folk.
Beyond paving new roads with her own singles, mxmtoon is inspiring the next generation of writers and producers. Along with the new single, which you can download here, she also has released all the vocal stems, encouraging fans to create edits and remixes of her latest release. If that’s not folk, we’re not sure what is. You can access all the stems here.
mxmtoon will be headlining The Echo with Khai Dreams on March 16, 2019. Tickets go on sale this Friday, 11/30, get yours here.
