Bio

“Nominated for the Horizon Award in the BBC Folk Awards 2013, Maz O’Connor is a gifted singer of traditional and self-penned songs. She accompanies her uniquely pure voice with guitar, shruti box, piano and harmonium. Described by Froots magazine as ‘an enchanting debut album’, her ‘Upon a Stranger Shore’ was released in the summer of 2012, just after Maz left university. 2013 brought a creative fellowship with the English Folk Dance and Song Society, funded by the BBC Performing Arts Fund, and a summer spent as the singer for the RSC’s production of ‘As You Like It’ with music written by Laura Marling. After a busy year of gigging and gathering new material, Maz ‘s new album will be released in the Spring of 2014 and will be produced by multi-folk-award- winning Jim Moray. ‘a vocal performance that stops you dead in your tracks’ (Fatea magazine)”
