Saskia Maxwell

Saskia Maxwell is a singer, songwriter guitarist and flautist who hails from Cornwall in the UK. Whilst her 3 previous EPs have encompassed soulful jazz styles and exuberant folk songs, her more recent performances display a new found purpose and grace and are suggestive of a move towards a more otherworldly and ethereal folk style. Her new songs are explorative of many moods and perspectives that share a common purpose of being spiritually provocative and invigorating. At just 21 Saskia has gigged extensively and has performed over 600 shows and festivals in the UK alone. She has supported the likes of Ralph McTell, Rae Morris, JP Cooper and Rachel Sermanni. She intends to release her debut album in 2018.

Born into a musical family, Saskia has always been surrounded by music and was classically trained on guitar, flute and piano from an early age. She is inspired by bands like Pentangle, Fairport Convention, Dead Can Dance and Cocteau Twins.
