Breaking News: Kirsten just announced that she'll be performing on the Emerging Artist Showcase at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival this year! See her now, in our own intimate venue, before she becomes a superstar!
“I never thought I’d ever hear a voice as angelic and mesmerizing as I did when I first listened to Joan Baez some 50 years ago, but then I heard the voice, songs and melodies of Kirsten- Maxwell.” Jon Stein, The Hootenanny Cafe, WTBQ
Jon Stein’s praise might seem over the top. Joan Baez? Really? But take a listen to a couple of Kirsten’s songs and see if you don’t agree:
“It was love at first listen! Not just Kirsten’s gorgeous voice but her well-crafted songs about the intricacies of love and relationships. [Her new CD] Crimson is a must listen.” Joltin Joe, Radio Nowhere
A prolific songwriter, Kirsten was awarded first place in a contest sponsored by the Rhode Island Songwriters Association. She was selected for a coveted slot in the Suzi Wollenberg Folk DJ Showcase at the 2015 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference and this year was named one of the winners of the 2016 South Florida Folk Festival Singer Songwriter Competition which means she’ll be performing on the festival's main stage in 2017.
“Her exceptional vocal range, lilting melodies and heartfelt performance is the perfect match for her songs. [Her new CD] ‘Crimson’ will take you on a journey through familiar moments in life and have you nodding your head in agreement. The best part is that this is only the beginning.” Artie Martello, Mostly Folk Podcast
Listen to the first 15 minutes of the Mostly Folk Podcast interview of Kirsten at kirstenmaxwell.com, and you’ll understand how committed she is to her craft and her art. Which might explain her growing reputation as Long Island’s most promising young singer-songwriter.
