MUKZI ( 木子 muk6 zi2 ), is a moniker derived from the singer of Phoon’s surname meaning “the children of trees”. He cut his teeth off the streets of Hong Kong when he started busking back in 2015. He then performed and wrote songs as MUKZI before he fronted the band Phoon. MUKZI took his solo projected and turned it into a band called THE ISLAND in 2018 with his friends (Xavier on drums, Kashun on guitar, Wai on bass & Jonathan on Keyboards) to perform and record his original material as MUKZI & THE ISLAND.
With a sonic palette ranging from hearty folk ballads to vibey R&B, his music dwells with genuine emotions and pop sensibility throughout.
Today he has released his debut singled Island – a dreamy almost 5 minute long track that will soothe your soul.
Besides fronting Phoon and his solo project MUKZI, he is also about to launch his own record label entitled Melon Yeah – for any of you Canto peeps out there – it’s a take on the infamous phrase 咩撚嘢. 🙂 The first release will be Mukzi’s own music.
Clearly, there should be great shit in store for our hyper talented buddy…just listen.
This is his other act:
