Bio

Hailing from the NSW Central Coast, Maia Jelavic is a fast-rising star in Australian folk. With her soulful voice, spirited guitar and gorgeous imagery, Maia's songs are stories, full of lost loves and dusty windows, of soldiers and seductions. Following the great success of her debut EP tour, The Less I See, throughout Sydney and Melbourne, Maia recently toured the East Coast with Back I Go, the first single from her forthcoming album scheduled for release in mid-2015.
She has performed with some of Australia's best new talent, including Siskin River, Tin Sparrow, Tom Stephens, and Shelley Segal. With influences including Laura Marling, Rufus Wainwright, and Lior, Maia Jelavic is a performer not to be missed.

"As soon as we welcomed this lovely performer into our midst, I could tell her set would be spellbinding. Poised, graceful, and quietly confident, Maia stepped up to the stage and immediately commanded our attention. Her strong vocals, lilting storytelling stage presence and open manner was hypnotic." Jessie Ray, Art Party

"“The Less I See” is a smooth and polished blanket to wrap up in on a day at home with yourself.  Skillful picking and soulful vocals make for a short but heartening ride through Jelavic’s world.  Woven with love and history from the threads of the English language, this cloth is gown that any artist would be proud to don, but tailored by Jelavic  to perfectly fit herself." - Lisa Regular Meyer, EarToTheGroundMusic

About two years late to the party but it's worth stating that this is really lovely. Now I'll be waiting for something new and I promise I won't miss it next time.
