MAVI PHOENIX (AT)
There is not really much to say about the Austrian international music scene and you will struggle to find many in the world waiting for the next big Austrian artist to come around, especially when it comes to urban pop music. But who really cares? Not Mavi Phoenix that’s for sure. The Austrian urban/pop artist loves the position she currently finds herself in and is making music the way she wants to make it, not the way the record industry demands. The young artist with Syrian roots started to produce music at the age of 11 when her father gave her an old Macbook. She then learnt to play the guitar and has been producing and writing music ever since. German lyrics were never an option for the girl who grew up on Bowie and Queens Of The Stone Age and went to an English school. Urban rap in particular has had a major influence on her truly distinct style and sound which is a testament to the exuberance of youth and her “don’t give a fuck“ attitude. A couple of weeks ago Mavi released „Quiet“ the first track of her upcoming „Young Prophet EP“ on her self founded label LLT and it straight went into worldwide Spotify viral top 50 charts. She already confirmed the first summer festival shows for 2017 and Mavi's working on new videos and tunes. She’s definitely an artist to watch..
