Mae Simpson Music
Mae Simpson Music blurs the lines between a wide range of influences. From the depth and energy of funk and rock, down to the melodic edge of R&B and folk. Led by Mae Simpson, who’s ‘…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 developed an immediate impact that favors the human connection between the musicians and the audience. Opening up for acts like Dermot Kennedy, Robert Clay, Pert Near Sandstone and  Playing many stages across the Midwest like First ave main room, 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.
