Up and coming artist Maisie Gaffney impresses with her debut EP ‘Escapes’. The record offers acoustic renditions of songs by the likes of Whitney Houston, Drake and Swedish House Mafia, with Maisie’s passionate performance providing a personal touch to these renowned tracks. Her celestial voice is effortlessly controlled as it soars over shimmering keys and softly strummed guitar, showcasing the limitless talent of this upcoming songstress.
Discussing her new release, Maisie said: “During lockdown it was so depressing and the only way I was able to escape that was to listen and create music in my own little bubble. I want everyone to feel the same through music.”
A breezy and irresistible listen, ‘Escapes’ certainly has the intended impact. Based in Gloucestershire, Maisie Gaffney has been gracing stages across the county with her soulful style, including the Upsurge Weekender at Blackfriars and the G15 celebration in Gloucester Cathedral. She draws her inspiration from artists such as Jorja Smith, Sam Smith and Coldplay, yet her powerful voice carries an abundance of authenticity. This is just the start of Maisie’s journey, and we anticipate big things to come.
