Kirsten Maxwell


_“She opens her mouth and birds fly out.” _

_ — Vance Gilbert_

Kirsten Maxwell is New York native, turned nomadic singer/songwriter. Often compared to artists like Eva Cassidy and Joni Mitchell, Maxwell is known for her vocal agility. Her vast repertoire, which includes everything from folk classics to jazz standards, is only a compliment to her award winning original songs. Maxwell has released an album and an EP, embarked on six self made tours around the US, and opened for Melissa Etheridge, Tanya Tucker, The Bacon Brothers, and Robert Klein.

She was last seen touring with legendary singer/songwriter Judy Collins.

“Kirsten Maxwell is an amazing writer and powerful, evocative singer whose performances are a sheer joy. She shines in her own lyrical compositions and in her singular choices of other artists, especially those of Joni Mitchell. Hearing Kirsten sing is uplifting-her future as a performer will be an inspiration in an already marvelous present.“
