Folk / Indie / Singer-Songwriter
mxmtoon (pronounced em-ex-em-toon) is the moniker of 18-year-old maia, the oakland-based singer, songwriter, and ukulele player who has amassed hundreds of thousands of followers online for her highly relatable songs that either make you want to belly laugh or weep along with her and her self-deprecating and goofy youtube videos. She sings of love, friendship, racial identity, and more, lyrically taking a dive into the common insecurities of the coming-of-age teenager.
On her debut album, plum blossom, she continues that run of thoughtful considerations with more songs about romance, body confidence, and more, all recorded from the confines of her parents' guest room. Her forthcoming 20-song LP the masquerade is due for release September 17, 2019. Passionate, genuine, and warm, mxmtoon feels like a friend you can rely on, in bad times and good.
