Hi,


I'm happy to announce my Patreon page is up and running! I'll be posting new songs, brief video check-ins and livestream shows plus offering an online workshop and custom song level where I write and record a tailor made song for the person or occasion of your choice. Patreon is a great way to keep the new material coming and stay in direct contact with those who want to be the first to hear it. I've been thinking about some additional content too like demos of songs that were recorded by other artists and interviews and duets with friends like Edwin McCain and Will Kimbrough. All suggestions welcome.


You can check it out at patreon.com/maiasharp


I hope you're all staying strong through this strange brew of Groundhog Day meets sweeping changes.


Thanks for listening,


Maia



I'm starting to find my online show groove...this week I'll be sharing a virtual Writers In the Round with The Accidentals, May Erlewine and Anna Tivel for TIME OUT. Next week: Facebook Live on the SongwritingWith:Soldiers FB page where I'll play songs written at those transformatively meaningful retreats. Check TOUR DATES for details of those shows


I'll also be throwing in some weekend Instagram Live and FB live shows (solo and with friends). Please keep an eye out at my IG @maiasharpmusic and FB @maiasharp. It's a new day but it doesn't have to keep us from sharing some music. Thanks, friends!

Hi Friends,


I know everyone is saying it these days but it's worth repeating...I hope you're all staying healthy, relatively sane and maybe even productive. Those are all challenging missions right now so don't beat yourself up if you're not 3 for 3.


So far I'm managing the sane part but the healthy part didn't go my way a few weeks ago. I got a sinus infection, then pneumonia and, with that diagnosis, the Covid test which came back (12 days later) positive. That's not what I meant when I told myself to stay positive. It was miserable but I'm the other side of it now well out of the contagious w


indow and well past the time when I could have given it to any contacts pre-isolation. I was saved by friends who became porch fairies dropping off groceries, a prescription, homemade chicken soup and even warm chocolate chip cookies. Huge love and thanks to my porch fairies and so many other friends and family members near and far who checked in daily. I felt like hell but I felt loved (that might be a song).

I'm getting the productive part going again now. I mentioned in my last post that I was in the studio...the album is done and mixed and just waiting for a good time to release it with a tour to follow. For obvious reasons I'm waiting to see when that can happen safely.

In the meantime I'll be doing some shows online starting with Shut In and Sing THIS SATURDAY April 4. Just go to StageIt.com to get signed up for your ticket.

I'll be doing more online shows in the coming weeks. Check my instagram @maiasharpmusic, twitter @maiasharp or FB @maiasharp for announcements.

Thanks and please stay well!


Maia
