Biography

Maud the Moth was founded in 2010 as the solo project of Amaya López-Carromero. Hailing from Madrid, Maud the Moth has always been a fluid entity, cycling through various line-ups and formations, without loosing sight of its fundamental sense of purpose.

Beginning with a minimal set up of voice and piano, with the occasional use of a looper, the project has also dressed up as a trio and duo in the past. Drawing on a wide-ranging musical background, which includes jazz, classical, avant garde, soul and even some elements of metal, Maud the Moth carefully combines these disparate elements into a final product that is always musical, coherent and heartfelt.

With the release of ''Home Futile Home'' in 2011 through Nooirax Producciones, Noma Records and Excellent Records, Maud the Moth caught the attention of the Spanish specialized music press and the record was showered with praise by the likes of Mondosonoro, H magazine and the Spanish edition of Rolling Stone magazine to name but a few. On the back of this, a series of live performances took place across Spain, Portugal, France and the UK, which is now home to Maud the Moth.

Fast forward to the summer of 2014, when Maud the Moth enters CrispinSound (Little Dragon, House of Trees) in Gothenburg to record her second full-length album ''The Inner Wastelands''. A piece of work which is remarkable for both it's intricacy and it's depth of feeling, the album further establishes Maud the Moth's status as a class act, as well as one that eschews easy classification.
