Ricky explains, “I always thought mxmtoon was such an impressive creative, juggling all of these projects so easily. She brought that same energy to the song. Super communicative, naturally collaborative, and above all just such a kind person. She’s a pro, and I feel lucky to have been able to work with her so early in her career.”
mxmtoon adds, “I was so excited when Ricky reached out to me. I’ve been listening to his music for ages and have even spent many hours covering his songs, so the opportunity to work together was extremely thrilling! ‘Line Without A Hook’ is such a unique song, and it was a pleasure getting to collaborate with Ricky on trying to maintain the core of the original song while adding a bit of my own spin on parts.”
