Saskia Maxwell is set to release her first full length studio album and is taking the project to the community. She would like your involvement to help her new material come to life. The money you contribute will go towards paying musicians, studio time, mixing/mastering the record and pressing the album to both CD and vinyl.
Saskia Maxwell is a singer, songwriter guitarist and flautist who hails from Cornwall in the UK. Whilst her 3 previous EPs have encompassed soulful jazz styles and exuberant folk songs, her more recent performances display a new found purpose and grace and are suggestive of a move towards a more otherworldly and ethereal folk style. Her new songs are explorative of many moods and perspectives that share a common purpose of being spiritually provocative and invigorating. At just 21 Saskia has gigged extensively and has performed over 600 shows and festivals in the UK alone. She has supported the likes of Ralph McTell, Rae Morris, JP Cooper and Rachel Sermanni. She intends to release her debut album in early 2018.
Born into a musical family, Saskia has always been surrounded by music and was classically trained on guitar and flute from an early age. She is inspired by bands like Pentangle, Fairport Convention, Dead Can Dance and Cocteau Twins.

"The dream is to complete an album that I am proud of and that brings joy to people's lives. My writing at the moment feels so inspired. I am shifting and developing in both vocal and musical styles. I believe that music brings beauty, colour and creativity to life and can paint a picture of a new way forward - a catalyst for social, environmental, and spiritual change"
"I can't thank everyone enough for all their support and encouragement over the last few years. People keep asking me when they can have a copy of my album in their hands, but a lack of funds has prohibited this project to date. By pledging, there are many different ways to help make this dream of mine become a reality"
HAND WRITTEN LYRIC SHEETS
"not just any old lyric sheet, i promise to go to town a little bit on these"
