MAUDE GUN is two chicks in brooklyn who love ornate storytelling mash together acoustic folk and post-punk to bring you irreverent song-cycles like CLAUDIA, THE WORD (It’s a super cunty 'Jesus Christ Superstar,' as if written by Patti Smith and Joni Mitchell). the harmonies are electrifying, the word-play is gratuitous; the characters are wry and the sound-paintings are effing mythical.
Aviva Jaye loves connecting with people at the intersection of heart, brain & art. Dedicated to empathy and diversity through music, she wields voice, guitar, piano, ukulele & harp to share raw material with simple, haunting motifs & transparent lyrics. Fans of a delicate artist who draws from the simplicity of folk, depth of soul and clarity of pop will be pleased.
