Mae Simpson

The Mae Simpson Band blurs the lines between a wide range of influences. From the depth and energy of funk and rock, down the the melodic edge of R&B and folk. Led by Mae Simpson whose ‘…voice is larger than life — but not as large as her uncontainable energy that radiates from the stage” (Helen Teague – Minnesota Public Radio).

Known for their Intense and exciting live shows, the band has an immediate impact that favors the human connection between the musicians and the audience. They have opened up for acts like Dermot Kennedy, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and more, and played many notable stages across the Midwest like First Avenue, The Fillmore MPLS, Basilica Block Party, and Blue Ox. If you are a fan of artists such as Alabama Shakes, Lake Street Dive and Bruce Springsteen, Mae Simpson is right up your alley.

“Mae’s powerful voice has remnants of Janis Joplin and Ella Fitzgerald, tied together with a rasp of Joan Jett. Brought together by an extremely talented and passionate band, Mae Simpson Music is a ticking time bomb for breaking into the national array of local artists to make it “big.” – Music in Minnesota, Richard Dollarhide

“It’s impossible to stand still during a Mae Simpson Music set. Simpson’s raspy, dynamic voice is larger than life — but not as large as her uncontainable energy that radiates from the stage.” – Minnesota Public Radio, Colleen Cowie

“Mae Simpson‘s horn-laden soundcheck lures us to the Backwoods Stage for one of the most energetic and memorable performances of the weekend. The Twin Cities-based band led by astounding vocalist and namesake Mae Simpson bucks Blue Ox’s bluegrass-leaning tendencies with a lively blend of rock and roll, blues, folk that throws the couple hundred night owls looking on with us into an after hours frenzy.” – Milwaukee Record, Josh Hoppert
