Described by The Observer as ‘a highly individual singer-songwriter’, Maz O’Connor is a truly unique artist.
Known for her haunting, emotive vocals and poetic lyricism, her songs are most often short stories inspired by her love of literature, folklore and mythology. Her Irish roots, she suspects, inform her love of darker tales—those of heartbreak, longing and loss.
Since winning a BBC Performing Arts Fund Fellowship in 2014 (once won by Adele) Maz has release four albums, toured extensively, played live sessions on BBC Radio 2 and 3, and appeared at major U.K. festivals, including Glastonbury.
Her latest album, ‘What I Wanted’ (May 2022), has been widely praised, and called ‘an excellent thing’ by Mark Radcliffe of BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2.
