Currently in his mid-20s, the Upper Austrian singer, rapper and songwriter uses his personal influences as the inspiration for his wide range of sounds. Mavi Phoenix’s music dances between softboi rap by Drake and Childish Gambino, Charli XCX’s hyperpop and the 90s/00s alternative beats of the Beastie Boys. The 'Mavi attitude' is always ever-present, however, giving everything a unique Mavi touch which combines all these directions into the distinct Phoenix brand.
Mavi was just 11 when he wrote his first songs in his bedroom. In 2014, at the age of 17, his first EP "My Fault" was released, which he produced himself. In the summer of 2019, he spoke for the first time about Gender Dysphoria in the music video for "Bullet in My Heart". It was at the end of that same year that Mavi officially chose to use the pronoun 'he'.
In his debut album, "Boys Toys“ Mavi processes his self-discovery in the gender spectrum for the very first time. Together with producer Alex The Flipper, an honest portrait is created in the form of a concept album - "Just because my voice is high doesn't mean I’m not a guy."
