After the successful debut "Boys Toys" Mavi Phoenix reports back on February 25, 2022 with the release of his new album "Marlon" - and more self-confident, lighter as well as more guitar-heavy than before. Songs like "Grass And The Sun," "Tokyo Drift," "Leaving," "Nothing Good" and "F Song" announce the artist's musical liberation after publicly coming out as a trans man. Guitar riffs, amp and synth sounds meet pop punk of the 2000s.
In 2019, not yet outed as male at the time, he was in Austin to play SXSW Festival a gig. It was there that he recorded his transgender coming out video. Mavi Phoenix spent the last two years undergoing his gender transition, and along with it, redefining his artistic vision. In the course of the hormonal changes, he also had to retrain his voice.
Marlon Nader aka Mavi Phoenix sings about the rebellion of self-discovery, heartbreak, melancholy, living in the moment, sex, attraction and physicality. The album is available for pre-order now here. In spring 2022, Mavi Phoenix will bring "Marlon" to the stage and tour Germany, Austria and Switzerland for the first time with his band.
