Basic Folk: Maya de Vitry
Singer/Songwriter Maya de Vitry is on the podcast this week! Maya was a former member of the string trio The Stray Birds, but now she has stepped out on her own with her first solo album, Adaptations.
de Vitry grew up on 7 acres of rolling green in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Even from a small age her musical talent and intelligence were evident. We discuss her singing Iris Dement’s “Our Town” at six-years-old for show and tell, and teaching other kindergarten kids multiplication. Maya then unpacks the evolution of her writing from processing her feelings in her journal to creating a song, and the fear and the freedom she felt recording her first solo album.
