“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.”— 30A
Maiah Wynne is a multi-instrumentalist, one-woman tour de force. Throughout her performances, she fluently transitions through over 10 unique and traditional instruments, like the dulcimer, oil can ukulele, keys, and guitar, while her feet do the percussive work. Adept at embodying a mood or theme in one song and then swapping it for another, what emerges is a shifting and engaging experience threaded through by Wynne’s hauntingly beautiful voice and earnest lyrics.
Artists like Maiah Wynne remind us that we have a choice in how we engage with the world. Wynne is intentional in the subjects she chooses to write about. She believes in art—music in particular—as a means for change and has dedicated projects to causes including the preservation of ocean life and mental health.
She has performed on large stages and in intimate settings including featured appearances on KEXP, JPR, Sundance Film Festival and South by Southwest. Maiah most recently placed second in The Museum of Pop Culture's Sound Off 2018 competition, and she toured as a featured artist with Portland Cello Project in May. Here latest single "Sleep" has been described by OPB as “a gorgeous piece of orchestral folk pop"
