If you spend some time with Maisyn’s music you’ll know more about her heart and yours, too. The Los Angeles-based indie pop-rocker is an emotional force, weaving her way “into the alternative mainstream, particularly the new generation of female rock stars [such as] Julia Jacklin, Camp Cope and Phoebe Bridgers [Floated Magazine].”
Born and raised in the Hudson Valley, Maisyn started tapping into the scene at a young age. Playing at venues like Rockwood Music Hall and DIY touring across the east coast, she gained confidence as a musician and performer. Maisyn set roots in L.A. after graduating from the Popular Music Program at the Thornton School of Music in 2019.
Now working with Grammy-nominated engineer / producer Joey Messina-Doerning (HAIM, Women in Music Pt. III), Maisyn matches introspective lyrics with pop candy melodies. Thoughtful yet unapologetic, she explores themes of identity, coming of age, and longing with fearless poise.
Her debut “Cool Grl,” released in January 2021, reflects on the performance of likability. As Earmilk put it, Maisyn's "Cool Grl" “rejects the concept of conditional love while showing us the inherent value of vulnerability." The song was also praised by 1883 Magazine and Bust and was featured on Spotify's Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds: Pop playlists.
