About Maya De Vitry

Maya de Vitry’s vibrant voice seems to rise out of some necessity of bringing songs to life, embracing listeners with what Folk Alley calls a “soulful intimacy”. She grew up in a musical family in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, understanding music to be a place of gathering, a way to spend a summer night around a campfire. Maya first traveled and performed as a fiddling street musician, and then in bars, theaters, and on festival stages as a founding member of The Stray Birds (2010-2018). Since the band parted ways in 2018, Maya has been devotedly creating a powerful new body of work – one that consistently blurs genre while showcasing her delight in storytelling and her extraordinarily dynamic singing. Whether she is playing with her electric band in a bar or sharing a song on acoustic guitar at a folk festival, there is an emotional immediacy and a striking magnetism in Maya’s music. She has been invited to support a variety of tours – she has warmed up stages for innovative singer-songwriters like John Craigie and Aoife O’Donovan, and bands like Mighty Poplar and The Wood Brothers. In addition to performing and recording, Maya is a sought-after co-writer and co-creator, and has been steadily and closely collaborating within her chosen musical community of Nashville, TN for nearly a decade. Maya has released 3 full-length solo records (Adaptations, How To Break a Fall, Violet Light), 1 EP, and a series of singles. Her latest release is a 5-song EP, Infinite (released 10/20/23).
