January 24th – 24-year-old Austrian artist Mavi Phoenix has been mixing, producing, and creating music for over a decade—part of a generation who takes a hands-on approach to their art. What started as playing around on GarageBand soon led to Mavi releasing their first album, 2014’s My Fault, at age 19, and then discovering that music was their life’s passion. Sitting at the intersection of pop, rap, and hip-hop, Mavi’s sound is characterized by a refusal to be categorized, a narrative that’s beautifully illustrated in their visuals, too. Their music video for “Bullet in My Heart” was a raw and personal account exploring gender dysphoria and how that has integrated into their life.

Mavi Phoenix will open for Milky Chance March 1st at Prague, Forum Karlin Club, tickets are still available.
