Alexandria Maillot’s resume is as colourful as her genre-blending timbre. Her gritted, inflective vocals and lyrical narratives have often drawn her comparisons to music heavyweights such as Feist, Stevie Nicks, and Alabama Shakes’, Brittany Howard. Now, the Vancouver Island “swoon rock” artist is gaining momentum within the Canadian music landscape with her upcoming sophomore album, set for a fall 2019 release.
The new record digs deep; it’s the gut wrench of a heartbreak, the belly drop of a rollercoaster. The album is bold, yet equally refreshing in sound: subtle hints of southern rock and old country mixed in with the angsty influence of a 90s grunge rocker. “Messed it Up”, the first preview of the record, is no exception. “Messed It Up came from the relative place of uncertainty,” comments Alexandria. The album centers around the concept of morality; what it means to do good, to be good. A series of contemplations and realizations, the album begins and ends with a chordal question, offering up the perspective that in our search of the right way, in the end, perhaps there is not one definitive answer.
Performing since the age of seven, Alexandria has already amassed an impressive list of credits, including being scouted by David Foster at age twelve, working with Randy Bachman, and being featured on the Oprah Winfrey network. She’s performed at music festivals such as Rifflandia, Riverfest Elora, and Iceland Airwaves, and toured extensively across Canada and the EU. The 2016 release of her debut album, Time, has proven to be a body of work that has merited national radio attention and widespread critical acclaim amongst industry peers and music lovers alike.
