Maija Sofia Short Info

Maija Sofia is a true ingenuity of the current generation of folk and forthright musicians.

-The Thin Air, 2017

Maija Sofia, recently appearing on the cover of the Irish Independent Review as one of Ireland’s young ‘future makers’, has been captivating listeners with her dark, fairytale, lyricism since the release of her first single ‘Cosmonaut.'

Falling loosely under the Antifolk umbrella, she has toured relentlessly across the UK and Ireland and even as far as New York. In 2016 she released her debut EP 'The Sugar Sea’ which was called “bewitching” by The Thin Air, “fine and gossamer” by Nialler9 and “deftly written, subtle and beguiling” by The Last Mixed Tape. The single, 'Stains’ was named an Irish Times 'song of the week’ alongside Lampchop and Bon Iver. Her latest single 'Persephone’ was heavily praised in print and online and was playlisted by RTE Culture.

Some of her most notable performances include the renowned Other Voices festival in Dingle, The London Antifolk festival, Rich Mix Centre in Shoreditch, HWCH festival in Dublin, The Living Gallery in Bushwick NY and support slots for Joan As Police Woman, Goat Girl, Mutual Benefit and Darren Hayman.

She has collaborated with Darren Hayman (Hefner) and Gazel, and appears in the 2016 BFI endorsed film BRAKES starring Noel Fielding and Paul McGann performing her song Cosmonaut. She has also collaborated with acclaimed performance artist Zamira Kate Mummery for Moving Words performed in North Finchley Arts Depot and was invited to perform at the London screening and director Q&A session of the Elliott Smith documentary, 'Heaven Adores You.’

She currently lives between London and Dublin and is writing her debut album
