About with special guest Maiah Wynne

Folk

with special guest Maiah Wynne

Maiah’s music transcends the mundane. It goes above the ‘that song sounds good’ level. I can hear the potential for her to become a future songstress that others will be imitating. She’s that good” says Eclectic Arts writer Mark Sugiyama, and he’s right. Maiah has the kind of hauntingly beautiful voice that can cause a room full of people to fall still, silently taking in every word and note. At just 22 she has achieved milestones in her career others only dream of. She recently received accolades from NPR Music and KEXP and has won a host of international music awards.

Maiah has also caught the attention of some of the biggest names in music including Alex Lifeson, Mohini Dey, and Marco Menamin - all of which she has recently collaborated with. As a testament to her strength as a songwriter and lyricist, Lifeson stated that Maiah has “the ability to deliver an emotive soundscape as a platform to lyrics both personal and universal.” While her songs are uniquely genre-bending and often envelope-pushing, they are never polarizing. She sings from a place of vulnerability, and with that vulnerability comes a beautiful mix of bravery, empathy and compassion.

Earning the title One Woman Tour De Force, Maiah has already written hundreds of songs on an impressive array of instruments including the dulcimer, keys, guitar, uke, banjo, and more. She is known for playing up to 4 instruments at the same time during her shows, often while wearing butterfly wings. Her whimsy shines through in her smile, and it is clear that despite all the hard work, she still makes time to have fun and add a little magic to every show. 

“What made us fall for her even more was her drive to use her talents to make a difference.” says 30A Magazine. Maiah has donated time, portions of song sales, concerts, and music to organizations like MMIW USA, First Aid Arts, and Misool Foundation. Maiah is down to earth, friendly, and inspiring, and beneath every song is the emotional and empathetic storytelling that will keep you coming back for more.
