Maiah Wynne captivates audiences worldwide with the alluring and enigmatic duality present in her music. An award-winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Maiah delivers powerful and universally resonant lyrics with a hauntingly beautiful voice layered in sophisticated and emotive folk/pop soundscapes. Her vocal quality conveys a rare combination of opposing elements that contribute to a timeless and genuinely unique signature sound with wide appeal - simultaneously delicate and strong, light and dark, “pretty-but-raw.” (The Missoula Independent) Oregon Public Broadcasting described her song Sleep as “a gorgeous piece of orchestral folk pop that hides a sinister lyrical theme,” and KEXP wrote of Maiah’s “dusky, delicate voice brimming with emotion.” Varied timbres of dulcimer, keyboards, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, guitar and percussion reveal her multi-talented musical facility, and amplify her ethereal vocal lines.
In addition to finalizing her first full length album, Maiah is currently collaborating on an EP with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Alex Lifeson of Rush, and Juno Award winner Andy Curran. As the winner of the International Music from the Moon Contest in 2019, Maiah performed her original song Show the World for astronauts at the Apollo 11 Homecoming Dinner at the Space and Rocket Center, and recorded at the legendary FAME studios. Additional accolades include winning The Burl Audio Covid19 Songwriting Contest (2020), the Claim to Fame International Song Contest (2018), the HATCH Groundbreaker Award for Music (2016), Zoo Music Awards 18 and Under (2015), and earning Second Place in KEXP’s “Sound Off” Battle of the Bands competition (2018).
“The sky is clearly the limit for this rising folk star." (The Revue) Maiah has featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered (2019), at Sundance (2016), SXSW (2017), and in-studio on KEXP (2018). Her numerous film music placements include the major motion picture The Ballad of Lefty Brown starring Bill Pullman. She has collaborated with the Portland Cello Project and opened for artists and bands including Lucinda Williams, Dave Mathews, Tanya Tucker, Indigo Girls, Beth Ditto, Ruby Omanfu, Brandi Carlile, members of Thunderpussy and Pearl Jam, Asleep at the Wheel, The Sweet Remains, We Three, Glasys, Butterscotch, and Rising Appalachia at festivals such as Red Ants Pants, Timber, NW Folklife, Upstream, and more.
