Maiya Robbie

The most common remark heard after listening to Maiya Robbie is that one has been “transported”.  Her ability lies in being able to pierce through the surface, to the reality of things, to a place of poetic authenticity.  Like a storm about to break alongside half a sky filled with sunshine, Maiya’s music is a textural, vivid experience.  Influenced by the sensibilities of folk and contemporary poets like Gwendolyn McEwen, as well as touched with a healthy measure of indie ingenuity, Miss Robbie has the finesse to not only talk to the heart of a matter, but to take it in both hands and deliver it into the lap of her listeners. 

Several years ago (2007), Maiya joined Shane Koyczan and the Short Story Long with legendary spoken word performer Shane Koyczan, along with Olivia Mennell and Stefan Bienz.  A successful talk-rock band that utilizes Maiya’s songwriting and performance ability with it’s collaborative writing approach and inventive sound, the group continues to play venues and festivals across Canada to standing ovations and rave revues.
