"...something out of time..."
- Dan MacIntosh of The Aural Gatekeeper
Colorado-born Aya Maguire crafts songs around the idea that music can translate emotion from one mind to another, bypassing the intangible barrier that surrounds each of us. Ranging from delicate and emotive to bold and passionate, Aya's guitar picking and ethereal vocals invite listeners to inhabit the space outside of their protective walls.
Departing from its folk roots to explore a more unearthly realm, Aya's debut album, The Sandcastle King, takes listeners on an intimate journey of contemplation. It is due for release on July 13, 2018, just 18 months after the release of Aya's home-recorded EP, Fireflies.
As a visual artist, Aya's use of the acrylic and watercolor media delve into the dreamlike and sometimes psychedelic world of movement and emotion. In abstract imagery and in stylized illustrations, Aya explores the cosmic and the unconscious. Ask her about her commission availability using the form below.
