MAIA SHARP w/special guest Kelley McCrae
MAIA SHARP wears many hats, and as the saying goes, she wears them well. She has had her songs recorded by The Dixie Chicks, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Keb’ Mo’, Cher, Edwin McCain, David Wilcox, Art Garfunkel, Paul Carrack, Lisa Loeb and many more. She produced Edwin McCain's last album Mercy Bound (429 Records) and most recently two songs for Art Garfunkel's retrospective double album The Singer (Sony). And through it all Maia has continued to record her own albums. She has five solo releases and one collaborative project with Art Garfunkel and Buddy Mondlock that have all been critically acclaimed and enthusiastically embraced by press and radio. Each release has led to extensive touring throughout the US and UK 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. Her latest album Change the Ending, released last August by Blix Street Records, has garnered more good reviews and national airplay, a video for its first single “Me After You” and another string of dates opening for rock and roll hall of famer, Bonnie Raitt. "The L.A.-based songwriter continues to build an impressive solo career with her serious and sensitive, jazzy/poppy fifth album. These 10 originals showcase Sharp's clear, aching voice and tough-tender reflections on love.” ~USA Today. Maia returns to the Uncle, this time with Kelley McRae, the very second recording artist signed with the Louisville-based sonaBLAST! label.
