mxmtoon (pronounced em-ex-em-toon) is the moniker of Maia (born July 9, 2000), the Oakland-based singer, songwriter, and ukulele player who has amassed hundreds of thousands of followers online. Her highly relatable songs 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 diving into the common insecurities of the coming-of-age teenager. On her debut EP plum blossom which was released on December 7, 2018, 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. Passionate, genuine, and warm, mxmtoon feels like a friend you can rely on, in bad times and good.
