The Maitree Express

Our aim is to release a brand new Maitree album and get the best possible recordings we can for our fans!

We did it!

On 18th Jan 2018 we successfully raised £250 of £250 target with 18 supporters in 42 days

New stretch target

If we reach our stretch goal, we will use the extra money to remaster Regular Thang and put more money towards a brand new music video!

Who are we?

We are The Maitree Express! We’re a 7-piece band from Bath that is fast developing a following for love of our original, soulful take on roots music, ska, hip hop, swing and funky beats. The band’s sound appeals to audiences of all ages and backgrounds and we never fail to get people dancing! Our live sets always go down a storm, so now we need to get an album done that can capture that magic!

Our new album:

We released our debut EP entitled ‘Building Steam’ in 2015 and put out a single in 2016 called ‘Regular Thang’, but, as many of our fans agree, we’ve been a bit quiet on the recording front… but you can help us change that!

This year we’ve been working hard on the road, playing gigs in and around Bath and Bristol, and visiting festivals up and down the country such as Nozstock and the Sunrise Celebration. We’ve gained many new fans on the road and played fresh new material in front of people from all over the country. Regular rehearsals and songwriting sessions have made us better than ever before and we are ready to get our latest music out there for you to enjoy! 

We would be extremely grateful if you could help us make the best recording we can by pledging to us today. Please feel free to pledge whatever you want - every little helps. A fiver will get you a full, high quality digital download of our full album (we may add some extra perks in the near future for those who wish to pledge more!)

Peace and love to all, and a massive thanks to those who are pledging. Even if you're not pledging, sharing the page would definitely help a lot! :)
