MAÏA is a Montreal based francophone singer songwriter, formerly a founding member of Warner Music folk recording group Ladies of the Canyon. After spending the last few years co-writing and producing for various artists (Mother Mother, Jill Barber), MAÏA returns with her second solo album, “Plus que vive” (Inside Pocket/ Warner Music). This 10 song French heartbreak epic is a wildly personal and intimate look at the singer’s love misadventures. Sometimes delicate and often danceable and entrancing, MAÏA offers up a mature musical and lyrical statement here, as always led by her crystalline and powerful voice. Unique in her brand of bittersweetly entangling darkness and light, hers is the sound of an artist that has truly worked to find her voice, and arrived. She is currently working on an English album slated for a fall 2019 release.
