Maia Pillot (the singer, songwriter, and guitarist for the band) is a recent Portland transplant, all the way from New York City, where she's been gigging with her band for the last 3 years. They've created a uniquely folk-pop'n roll sound that'll make you wanna get up and dance.
They manage to combine super fun and catchy music with lyrics that reflect universal journeys through life’s passages that transcend age, gender, or background, while always having a positive and hopeful perspective.
At their live shows, Maia’s keen social observations and stand-up bits flow in between songs, making for an awesome mix of music and comedy. If you combined Stevie Wonder, Jenny Lewis, The Strokes, and Louis C.K., you'd get Maia & The Pilots.
