Chicago singer, songwriter, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Macie Stewart (she/they) returns with “Maya, Please,” their first single/video since their debut album, Mouth Full of Glass, released last year via Orindal Records. Following the same sonic path as Mouth Full of Glass’s avante chamber folk, “Maya, Please” is a tender morsel of meditative acoustic balladry, featuring fingerstyle guitar, understated vocals and lushly-arranged strings, all performed by Stewart. The accompanying animated video was drawn and directed by Izzy Vasquez.
"This song moves in and out of internal and external experience, all revolving around forgiveness. It is a conversation being had inside yourself asking for forgiveness, and ultimately finding the ability to forgive yourself. I wrote the strings at home and recorded them at Fox Hall with Dorian Gehring."
"Maya, Please" is available to stream & purchase from Bandcamp.
