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 is making waves in the folk/pop world, receiving accolades from music outlets like NPR’s All Songs Considered, KEXP and OPB music. Outside of the folk/pop world, Maiah is currently collaborating on an EP with Alex Lifeson of Rush. 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.” 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. Most recently, she won the international Music from the Moon contest with her original song “Show the World”. As the winner, she was awarded a trip to Space and Rocket Center to perform for the Apollo astronauts, ten thousand dollars, and a recording session at the legendary FAME studios.
