In an industry that still prefers its female stars quietly compliant, Mae Muller is the most enticing of propositions: a rising songwriting talent intent on telling it precisely like it is. Frank, funny, and endlessly relatable, the Little Mix and Sam Smith-approved singer is breathing new life into pop with her street-smart yet soulful compositions, and empowering others to speak their truths in the process.
Mae might not be seeking anyone else’s approval but she’s already received co-signs from Little Mix – who she opened for on their most recent UK arena tour – and Liam Payne – who personally picked Mae as the only support act for his recent live-streamed birthday show. Experiences like these have only strengthened her own determination to headline arenas. “That is the goal. And I have no doubt that it will happen. It’s just when. I want to tour the world. I want Grammys. I want BRITs. I feel like I can do it so I don’t see why not?”
