metsä means forest in the Finnish language. It is also the name Maxwell Prendergast took as his artist name. Based in Washington State, surrounded by natural beauty, he draws a lot of inspiration from the world around him. Cinematic intros and natural sounds play with breaking drums and gorgeous synths in his music. Having played festivals such as, Capitol Hill Block Party, Upstream & Summer Meltdown, and opening for artists like Louis Futon , Chet Porter, Elohim, Brasstracks, Big Wild and more.

Maxwell designs all of his logos, personal cover art, brand content, visuals, and more.  It is a continuous work in progress.  metsä is always looking to provide the best live show possible by intermixing a Ableton live set, with electronic drums and guitar.  Using sync'd custom visuals and tons of music (released, unreleased, and remixes) it is a sight to behold.

Currently releasing an EP through a new label called minerva which is lead by RAC & Goldroom. The second single is available to stream now.
