Mia Maestro has released her highly-anticipated debut album Si Agua. A world-renowned actress, singer and songwriter—Maestro has created a wide array of complex and memorable characters on-screen throughout her versatile career, while also carving out her own unique place in the indie music world.
Maestro made the decision to record Si Agua in Iceland after visiting the country for the first time when she was invited by acclaimed Icelandic singer-songwriter Emiliana Torrini to open for her shows. Maestro spoke with Feist for Interview Magazine about ‘Si Agua’, which translates to “if water,” saying, “A lot of songs on the album have to do with my experiences in the water, or melodies that I’ve come up with when I ‘m on a boat or in the middle of nowhere or taking some quiet time on my own.”
Tei Shi’s star has been steadily rising since her hypnotic pop debut EP Saudade, and has now released the highly anticipated follow up EP Verde. Since releasing her debut track “M&Ms” in 2013, the Argentina-born and Vancouver-raised songstress hasn’t stopped touring North America and abroad. Tei Shi is taking the momentum from her recent acclaimed SXSW performances in Austin and will make her way across North America and Europe, stopping in Montreal on May 2, before hitting Bestival in Toronto on June 12 and Squamish Valley Music Festival just north of Vancouver in August. All tour dates are listed below.
