Detailing the interpersonal relationships that define our lives in surprisingly staightforward ways, songwriter Maryse Smith winds her words around common themes with just enough of a literate twist. Her melodies envelope you and guard against the whipping winds while unexpected key changes and her honeyed voice - that voice! - serves as the reason you keep playing these songs on repeat again and again. Wise and weary, yet shimmering and sweet, it is a voice that ranks up there with the legends. Smith has long been a hidden gem nesteled for years in Burlington, Vermont, and now her journey has taken her to mothehood and Martha’s Vineyard, bringing new reflections on life and love and a window into a fiesty woman cutting through the small town New England air.
