Alexandria Maillot’s gritted, inflective vocals and lyrical narratives have often drawn her comparisons to music heavyweights such as Feist, Stevie Nicks, and Alabama Shakes’, Brittany Howard. Now, the Vancouver Island “swoon rock” artist is gaining momentum within the Canadian music landscape with her upcoming sophomore album, set for a 2019 release.
The new record digs deep; it’s the gut wrench of a heartbreak, the belly drop of a rollercoaster. The album is bold, yet equally refreshing in sound: subtle hints of southern rock and old country mixed in with the angsty influence of a 90s grunge rocker.
Alexandria’s resume is as colourful as her genre-blending timbre; Performing since the age of seven, Alexandria has already amassed an impressive list of credits, including being scouted by David Foster at age twelve, working with Randy Bachman, and being featured on the Oprah Winfrey network. She has performed at various music festivals (Rifflandia, Westward Fest, Riverfest Elora, Make Music Pasadenda, Iceland Airwaves), has had songs placed in
numerous TV/film credits (Chesapeake Shores, Hallmark’s “Heart’s of Spring”, Nancy Grace, MTV’s “Life of Jenks”) and has toured extensively across North America and the EU supporting her first release, “Time”, a body work that merited national radio attention across North America with its titular single, Time (On Your Own).
