"A delightful set of songs that hinges on upbeat folk."

The Reader, Duluth, MN

“A duo represented by two points of America, with very different voices yet with an excellent and natural blend." 

Indie Air, Buenos Aires, Argentina [Translated from Spanish]

"Take hazy male vocals, pair them with a crystal clear lady voice, throw in a kick drum, some acoustic poppiness, and a ukulele, and you’ve got a winning combination."

507 Magazine, Rochester, MN

"A wonderful time with the audience clapping and singing along!"

ABOUT

 

Band name: Axtell

Genre: Urban Folk/Soul

Origin: Minnesota, USA and Corrientes, Argentina; founded in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Description: Lively Argentine-American acoustic duet with elements of Argentine and US folk and soul

Bio:  Julian Hernandez, a young soloist from Argentina and Kat Axtell, a biology student from Minnesota, were singing on the patio of a tiny hotel in Argentina when the owner walked by and heard them. Immediately he asked them to play at his bar that night, and that was their first public performance together. The audience responded so well that they began to write and perform together in the capital Buenos Aires, forming the urban folk/soul duet "Axtell." Starting out in the city subways as their first rehearsals, they began performing in venues all over Argentina, Uruguay, and the United States.

Axtell’s sound blends genres from both members’ backgrounds: US Pop and R&B with Argentine Folk. Despite being just two onstage, the pair produces an energetic live show with guitar and ukulele, as well as the less familiar charango (Andean lute), and bombo legüero (“drum that can be heard a league away”). Despite skilled instrumentation, they don’t distract from the duet’s best feature: memorable melodies with captivating harmonies.

This summer and fall Axtell will be returning to the US Midwest as well as touring through Southeastern US for the first time on The Trilogy Tour. They will be promoting their third EP And Now, recorded in Buenos Aires in 2018.
