About Maia

Love and refuge

Ever since she was very young growing up in the Scottish highlands, music has been Maia's love and refuge. Her unique voice was first evident in Carnoustie's church choir and she has been singing and making music ever since.

After a successful spell session singing in the 1990’s, song writing became a nightly routine as a single mother after putting her daughters to bed, developing the personal, confessional style that has become her trademark. But it took a few years for her to see herself as a solo performer, having started her performing career in bands including In Bob We Trust and Edenwood, the popular Lewes duo known for their striking harmonies.

Her personal lyrics about life and love bring Jackson Browne to mind, while her unique voice is reminiscent of Natalie Merchant and K.D. Lang.

Maia has performed at festivals Into The Wild, Hilltop Sessions and supported Icelandic musician Svavar Knútur on tour in Scotland. She also supported Ben Ottwell and John Smith on a double headline bill and most recently Boo Hewerdine.

Her EP, 'New Horizons' is out now and she is firmly establishing herself as an exciting and interesting new voice in the indie-folk scene.

Dreaminess, ethereal unique music with grace and a voice from the heart.
