locally made sonic medicine with a twist of fizzy jazz

Berkeley-based MintJulep formed in early 2016 when Maya Morales (vocals/songwriter) and Tristan Burke (keyboard) met at a UC Berkeley jazz music club and started working on original songs. What started as a fun side project grew into a band when James Sud (bass/production) joined a couple months later, and Matt Fyke (drums) a year after that. The band’s extensive influence ranges from Hiatus Kaiyote to Ella Fitzgerald to Erykah Badu, but MintJulep is never anything but themselves, with unique musical chemistry, creative future R&B, and dreamy, original indie-pop melodies. We are set to release our EP “sonic Medicine” in early 2019.

You can find our music on Spotify, Soundcloud, and the Apple music store! You can also find more band news, including gigs, songs, and music videos on our Facebook page!
