A pop revolution, with the intention to replace the homogenous, regurgitated norm to be found on today's airwaves with strong melodies and layered harmonies that encapsulate the best of good old British Pop with a fresh face for the 21st Century.

Biography

The Raising Maisie entity is home to 4 minds. Max, Charlie, Tom and Zal. Their lust for strong hook driven melody forced with their high energy performance has seen their popularity soar in the relatively short period of their existence. The seed was sown in Brighton back in July 2009, and since then, they have not looked back in their mission to reinstate the good old-fashioned British Pop band on the mantelpiece of mainstream music. In January 2011, the retro inspired foursome released their debut album “Etc, Etc” worldwide, across all digital distributors to rave reviews. “a goodly dose of witty, wistful confidence. Irresistibly catchy” “a charming album that you’ll sing along to all day”.

Word of the lads was helped spread further by their debut video for the single “Yes, Here It Is” in which the ability to showcase their ambition and originality proved their creativity shone well beyond their years. In 2010, Raising Maisie were nominated in the “Song of the Year” category at the Brighton Music Awards, after opening the Brighton Live Festival. The young indie pop band were also awarded a slot on Gill Mills’ Best of Myspace, who described the single as “Lively piano riff led pop with a great angular jaunty vocal that puts you in mind of the dumb punk pop of the late 80's, blended with the style of The Kinks.”

Raising Maisie have branched out of Brighton across the South East including London, Portsmouth, Horsham, Guilford and Crawley (where they were crowned Battle of The Bands champions and opened the Youth Awards to an 800 strong audience). Things are always looking up for boys, as word of their catalogue of memorable songs spreads. Rock to the pop!
