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.
Despite busy Berkeley class schedules and full-time jobs, we are always looking to fit in more gigs! If you want to learn more make sure to check out our contact page!
