Maija Sofia is a singer/songwriter from Galway. She taught herself to play guitar when she was 13, and has been writing songs ever since. When performing she blends vocals with sparse harp melodies and raw electric guitar before filtering it all through a dark lo-fi layer. She has been described by bloggers Rapunzel and Pie as 'mesmerizing and moving, dreamy, melodic and stunning'; by Harmless Noise as 'Luxurious and Raw' and by Hot Press as 'uber-talented.' In recent months her disconcerting lyrics and ethereal melodies have earned her notable recognition in Ireland and beyond.
