Maya de Vitry’s devotion to songwriting is her way of staying present, curious, and imaginative. Pennsylvania-raised and Tennessee-based, Maya de Vitry first appeared on the touring scene in 2012 as a founding member of The Stray Birds, and Violet Light marks her 3rd full-length release as a solo artist. Produced by Ethan Jodziewicz and Maya de Vitry (with numerous musical guests, as each track features an entirely unique band) Violet Light is an open-hearted invitation to explore the tensions between the visible and the imagined, between love and control, and our unrelenting human desire to belong—to a home, to an environment, and to each other.
A versatile singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Maya de Vitry is thrilled to bring Violet Light to the stage in May 2022 in a dynamic and powerful show featuring band members Joel Timmons (guitars), Shelby Means (upright bass), and Dominic Billett (drums). The show will also feature an opening set – and collaborations – with special guest Alexa Rose – a North Carolina-based songwriter.

Headwaters are the source of a river. The furthest point from where water merges with something else. They are not mighty. Just a network of small tributaries, like a creek, not necessarily picturesque, but they’re the most important part of the river. Water is fluid and inconsistent and sacred and indifferent. You can be miles down a river, but you’re still at the origin. And in that way, water feels like it has transcended time. That’s how these songs found me—the way memories find you, in that slivering, elusive water. As quickly as you come across them, you bend in another direction.
Headwaters is the sophomore album from Virginian indie folk singer Alexa Rose. A series of minutely-observed vignettes that feel intimate and expansive at the same time. It captures the sweetness of life without avoiding any of the pain, with songs about time and its constraints, peppered with precise details pulled from Rose’s own life that make universal themes seem personal, inviting the listener to make each song their own.
