MJ FLAWS is St. Paul based musician Mitchel Paulson, a veteran artist of over a decade under the former moniker "Moxie". Paulson finished his first solo album under the new 'MJ FLAWS' moniker, the debut lo-fi, emo rap album “Army of the Brokenhearted Boys & Girls” in May, 2020, which spawned the hit single "Closer to You" (over 40,000 plays on SoundCloud) and he has subsequently released many singles and covers over the last several months. This artistic direction sees Paulson absorbing himself in the MJ FLAWS character and moving through a painful breakup in his late 30s and struggling to find balance in the space that is inching toward middle age while still feeling youthful and unaccomplished. Paulson, in the MJ FLAWS character, shows a vulnerability with his DIY, grown up teenage brokenhearted love stories seldom seen in artists in their late 30s, yet this emo style rap music will certainly emanate with and be relatable to any Millennial who grew up with the genre stalwarts of the early 2000s- My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Good Charlotte- while showing similarities to artists in the genre today-Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Peep, nothing,nowhere, and more . While MJ FLAWS, like so many others in his generation, struggle with the idea that they are too old to feel this way, his music will no doubt be a rallying cry for those to put on the black eye shadow and sink into all those feelings of angst, love, heartbreak, and ultimately, hope.
