Maia Sharp

November 20 8:00 pm PST

Second Stage

Doors Open: 7:00pm


Maia Sharp has had her songs recorded by The Chicks, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Keb’ Mo’, Cher, Edwin McCain, David Wilcox, Art Garfunkel, Lizz Wright, Paul Carrack, Lisa Loeb and many more. And through it all, Maia has continued to record her own albums including eight solo releases, one collaborative project with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock and her duo project, Roscoe & Etta (with writing/production partner Anna Schulze).  Each release has been embraced by press and radio and led to extensive touring and appearances on Mountain Stage, Acoustic Cafe, World Cafe, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” CBS Early Morning and the Today Show to name a few.  Maia returns to Hotel Cafe for the first time since moving to Nashville to celebrate the release of her new album Mercy Rising, out now featuring the Triple A radio single “Backburner.”

“What,,,a Lovely,,,Album.  I hit play and it put me in a beautiful trance, that I couldn’t get out of.” – Keb’ Mo’

“I think I have my favorites then another slays me. Maia is a master in her absolute prime — out of the ballpark once again, but this one really ignites everything that is different and brilliant about her writing, singing, songwriting and production. I’m running out of superlatives! ” – Bonnie Raitt

“Backburner” is one clever lyric, but the beauty of the song is that it isn’t cloying or cutesy. The arrangement, which features Sharp’s guitars and synths along with other musicians, is steady and unswerving, like on the cruise-control mode in your car. From Sharp’s contemplative delivery to the tautness of the arrangement, “Backburner” conveys regret without ever sounding maudlin. To extend its metaphor, it stays on simmer and never overheats.” – ROLLING STONE
