This EP showed up a couple of weeks ago. The folks who sent this to me included all the necessary information, but on the front was attached a sticky note that read, “just listen..”. I took their advice and did just that. Now I’m a big fan of Maia & The Pilots, and their new EP, Taking Off!
This group is led and fronted by songwriter Maia Pillot, who has a soft, yet edgy, yet fantastic voice. At first you wouldn’t think that Maia is a native of NYC. You’d think more Texas or Tennessee. But, keep focused on the lyrics and the music, then something about it changes your mind. These tunes are very straightforward. This isn’t ‘pop’, this is real.
Instead of going on any further.. Just Listen!
