Rebecca Maze biography

Rebecca Maze wrote her first song up a tree in the rolling Kent countryside at the age of 16. A hundred songs later she moved to Devon to study Literature at Exeter University.

Through writing subversive songs-critiques on the violence and misogyny of video-game culture, Rebecca established herself as a singer/songwriter with imagination and intelligence.

With a song featured on Charlie Brooker’s BBC program Gameswipe and her albums reviewed in The Guardian and The Independent Rebecca has gained a large following.

Now she’s applied everything she learnt to writing songs that are truer to her heart. Inspired largely by literature and myth, many of the songs focus on the courage it takes to live out one’s potential. She also composed the soundtrack for the film-documentary In Transition 2.0.

Rebecca is currently recording her new material and performing across Europe as part of the IC Music Programme. She lives in Devon (UK).
