Aya Maguire is a singer-songwriter originally from the Denver area. Although she's played music since she was a small child, her songwriting career really began when she picked up a guitar her senior year of high school and found that songwriting could soothe her soul more than poetry or music alone. Since then she has been using songwriting as a means of understanding the world and distilling emotion.
She began sharing her music at her college open mic nights in Portland, and later at cafés in Seattle before moving to Boulder in 2015. Aya's music has been described as a confessional, melodic blend of Iron & Wine and Joni Mitchell, drawing influence from the talents of artists such as Hozier, Feist and the Tallest Man on Earth. In sharing her work, she hopes to find common ground with listeners while continuing to deepen and expand her musical expression.
