Maia

“Youthful, spirited, richly atmospheric and intelligently off-centre alt-folk pop" - Time Out, 2012

Maia are a pop folk acoustic quartet from Huddersfield ,who have described themselves as sci-fi folk evangelists !
They have a radiant varied sound , stunning harmonies with a brooding sense of adventure and streaks of pop eccentricity .

After 3 years of live show experience, and supports including the likes of Anais Mitchell, The Low Anthem and The Unthanks the group are continuing to receive huge praise and a greater following for their fantastic live shows. After a critically acclaimed performance at the Cambridge Folk Festival in 2011 and residencies at the monthly Folke Newington night at The Drop (London) and the highly regarded Magpies Nest Collective, the band were asked to headline at The Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre on New Years Eve in 2012 which was the start to a year in which the band played over 80 shows including Hop Farm Festival, Larmer Tree, Port Eliot, London Folk Weekend, Wilderness ,Broadstairs FolkWeek,Musicport and No Direction Home.

Their highly acclaimed celestial album "Pepper Stars" released in Oct 2012
received many 4 and 5 star reviews and was a Time Out Album of the week.
The band were well supported on the radio regionally and nationally receiving from Guy Garvey and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 music as well as being picked for Best of 2012 on Radio 4s Loose Ends Culture Show
