Maia’s new album The Dash Between the Dates will be released by eOne Records October 16, the day of her OLS show! In the meantime, the first single “Nothing But the Radio” is available on iTunes and is already being played on Portland’s own WCLZ.
We've passed the point where it's news that Maia Sharp is a giant among her music industry peers. Those who write the songs, the singers who scout out the best material for themselves and major artists who seek the stimulus of work with their most creative colleagues, have already placed the singer-songwriter's name at the top of their list of collaborators.
The secret is out among the public as well. Beginning with Hardly Glamour in 1997, Sharp has released five solo albums and one trio album with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock, each garnering critical recognition, and built her following through touring on her own as well as opening for such headliners as Bonnie Raitt, Keb' Mo', Patty Griffin, Art Garfunkel and Jonatha Brooke.
In spotlights, on national radio and television, penning songs for Raitt, The Dixie Chicks, Trisha Yearwood, Cher and many more, in writing sessions with Carole King, Lisa Loeb, Jules Shear and David Wilcox, behind studio consoles producing for Garfunkel, Edwin McCain and others, Sharp has proven her ability to excel wherever talent manifests itself in music.
Maia will be a duo with her long time performance partner Linda Taylor (co-producer of The Dash Between the Dates and “house band” member on the TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway”).
