A dusky, delicate voice brimming with emotion.
Gorgeous orchestral folk-pop
Haunting...a fresh take on music that echoes back to the sounds of Appalachian folk tunes
Maiah’s ability to fuse her evocative vocal arrangements with the haunting narrative of Fearless Girl is a testament to her skills as a strong songwriter who can deliver an emotive soundscape as a platform to lyrics both personal and universal. I was touched deeply when I first heard Fearless Girl and felt any guitar arrangement required a delicate but resolute approach to echo the sentiment of this moving song. I feel very fortunate to be able to collaborate with Maiah on her music as well as mine.
Maiah Wynne is one of those musicians it’s impossible not to like. Down to earth, friendly, and inspiring
haunting vocals and ukulele...she’s making a mark in the folk-pop world.
[A Siren’s Song] fills you with wonder, with longing, with appreciation for the natural beauty that we so often overlook — and in doing so makes you want to run out and hug that mysterious ocean world and keep it safe from harm.
Maiah’s lyrics, music and artistry shows maturity and talent beyond her age
when you see her perform her song “Fearless Girl,” a #MeToo-era tribute that she sings in a strong, lucid voice while tackling keyboard, electronic drum kit and a bucket bass drum, it’s obvious why she’s a rising star.
Wynne delivers a cinematic beauty with “Sleep”. It is rich and complex, breathtaking and engrossing, as Wynne’s lithe vocals glide through the beautifully brooding soundscape. As the rhythms throb and the strings sear, Wynne shares a chilling tale about people suffering with chronic sleep disorders. Their world is a living nightmare, where the night haunts their minds. “Get out of my head, get out of my soul”, she lushly sings. This song, too, will haunt you, but you’ll embrace it instead of trying to escape from it. Hopefully, the rest of the world will embrace Wynne and acknowledge her incredible talent.
Portland Cello Project is honored to partner with Maiah on this genre-bending, envelope-pushing project,” said Doug Jenkins, Artistic Director, PCP. “Deriving from a survivor’s perspective, Fearless Girl blends the shimmery, solid sounds from Alex Lifeson alongside the sultry and evoking notes from Maiah, creating an orchestral folk pop-piece of empowerment that will leave you wanting more.
A prolific songwriter...Maiah Wynne is taking the world by tidal wave.
Haunting vocal tones, like a misty purple sunset filled with cool desert air, combine with an impressive array of instruments—including the mountain dulcimer, thumb piano, and the electric ukulele. The beauty of Ms. Wynne’s tracks is heightened further by her emotional and empathetic storytelling. Follow the butterfly, you won’t be disappointed.
Light and Shadows’ reveals the sound of a true artist perfecting their craft.
One of her most striking videos is of her performance inside the tunnel next to the Berkeley Pit. The tunnel glows like a hallway inside the Millennium Falcon. Wynne, wearing a purple dress and black boots, strums a gorgeous Bohemian Honey electric soprano ukulele (the body of which is made from a Bohemian motor oil can) and sings Radiohead’s “Creep.” Who hasn’t seen that song covered a million times? But Wynne’s take on it is pretty-but-raw in a way I’ve never heard before.
Maiah Wynne is a Gen Zer to watch as she adds her spark to the world.
At just 21 years old Wynne is already scorching out a path as a rising star of the folk-pop world, but what made us fall for her even more was her drive to use her talents to make a difference.
Absolutely gorgeous… The chorus, strings, and vocals really are ethereal and layered in a way that is exquisitely beautiful
Her Beautiful #MeToo Anthem is an expertly crafted song with a powerful message
It’s not just established stars and new super-groups that are making us go “Whoa!”, but plenty of newcomers are blowing us away. Take Maiah Wynne, who resides in Missoula, Montana. Her single, “Monster in a Human Suit”, which is from her EP Lights and Shadows, is gorgeous, haunting indie-folk, where every note and lyric penetrates deep into your skin. The allegory and imagery of the song is that of a seasoned creative writer, yet Wynne is only 19-years old. Could she be the next Brandi Carlile? The skies is clearly the limit for this rising folk star.
emotional and innovative
Maiah Wynne is Mystical, Magical, and Making Waves
Maiah Wynne has a voice that’s both sweet and haunting. Such that if it reached the ear of any sailor, he’d mistake her for a Siren and tie himself to the mast.
she’s able to capture the character from a song or idea, whether it’s a blues song or a dark, minimalist pop tune not too dissimilar from Lorde.
she’s continued to put herself into the world with a steady, humble confidence.
Maiah’s music transcends the mundane. It goes above the ‘that song sounds good’ level. I can hear the potential for her to become a future songstress that others will be imitating. She’s that good.
‘A Chance To Say Goodbye’ immediately evokes emotion. It’s the kind of song that could cause a room full of people to fall still, silently taking in every word and note. With sadness comes vulnerability and with vulnerability comes bravery, empathy and compassion, and what is more beautiful than that?
