MAIA Short Info

MAIA are self-proclaimed sci-fi folk evangelists and have spent the last 3 years touring and playing festivals and as a result have morphed and matured into what has been described as "Harmonic psychedelic sci-fi folk and disco rock....". Winners of the Yorkshire Gig Guide award for ‘Outstanding Live Band’ in 2014, MAIA are taking a break from recording to play a string of dates to showcase some of the new material from their forthcoming album to be released in the Autumn. Their genre busting mix glides easily from sweet stunning vocal harmonies to complex blissed out grooves; punctuated by echoing banjo, shimmering mandolin, spooky brass and captivating vocal melodramas.
