Actress Maya Hawke is also an accomplished folk musician with two full-length albums to her credit. She released her most recent album, Moss, last year via Mom + Pop. Now, Maya comes to the 9:30 Club for two shows — on Wednesday, March 15, and Thursday, March 16.
Austin Saalman from Under the Radar Magazine praised Hawke and Moss, stating, “Maya Hawke emerges as one of the decade’s most promising artists and her newest album serves to reinforce the point. Striking, passionate, devastating, and, ultimately, revitalizing, MOSS is a breath of fresh air, a stirring vision of young adulthood in blue.”
Maya said of the album, “It’s a heart-bursting, habit-breaking deep breath — for me at least. Making it felt like an emergency scavenger hunt of some kind. It’s sadder than I remember it. An attempt to organize a variety of feelings into some kind of style. Making it changed my life, both in the way it taught me to know myself and the people it brought deep into my heart that I will never let go of.”
Hawke wrote all 13 tracks on the album in collaboration with Lazar Davis, Christian Lee Hutson, and Will Graefe. Maya’s poetic lyricism touches upon themes of relationships, self-reflection, and acceptance and have been lauded by critics including Rhian Daly at NME, who labeled her as “an increasingly excellent songwriter.”
