Indie-folk singer-songwriter Maisy Start-Walter was born and bred in Cornwall until she moved to New Zealand at the age of twelve. Maisy travelled the world with her parents at a young age and would spend several months a year in rural France without television or technology. This meant she had to make her own entertainment and undoubtedly led to her developing a creative imagination. Growing up she was introduced to an eclectic mix of music.
Recognised for capturing audiences with a voice so haunting that you can almost feel the pain in every word, Maisy sings about life through her music and lyrics. Maisy is passionate about music and has been songwriting since the age of twelve. She has performed at venues and festivals throughout New Zealand and in Cornwall – in 2014 she supported Roo Panes and Rebecca Clements while on a visit to her hometown thanks to the support of SW1 Productions – and she has won several awards for her songs and performances. Her first music award was at the tender age of thirteen. She has played in front of intimate audiences as well as on main stages at festivals with large crowds. Shy by nature, Maisy is never more comfortable than when she is on stage performing.
