About the ArtistMy First Tooth My First tooth is the brain child (and love child) of One Toy Soldier’s Ross Witt. Influenced and inspired by bands like the Eels, Okkervil River, The Good Life and Neutral Milk Hotel, Witt initially began MFT as a solo singer songwriter project with an unabashed adoration of modern indie folk. But, with an enthusiastic response from many local musicians (and the addition of violins and more vocals) it quickly developed into something else...something grand and with ambition but slightly awkward and unsure of itself at the same time.
Witt’s admiration for musicians like Joanna Newsom and Will Sheff shine through in his eloquent and lucid storytelling, which raises the whole project way above the usual singer songwriter dross. Yes, Witt can spin a yarn about a boy with a broken heart but he’ll do it so subtly and deftly that it will wrap you up in a blanket under the stars and enchant you like the first fairy tale you heard as a child. These songs can be a lullaby for lost and the lonely or a swift punch to the chest, but either way, we defy you not to be moved." - Music for Squares
“Simultaneously rough and delicate, MFT make music that’ll quietly ravage your heart, then give it a gentle stroke better. Killer pretty stuff” - Marsha, Xfm
"There really is no reason why this guy
cannot become the British Willy Mason." - Size
