Maple Glider is the project of singer-songwriter Tori Zietsch. Striking emotionality is at the centre of her performance, leaning into an intimacy that is achieved by way of deeply personal reﬂections and velvety melodic compositions. Vocals melt into layers of plucked acoustic guitar and lulling piano, drawing on the sombre styles of folk contemporaries with a stark tenderness and introspection that assumes the listener is inside her bedroom as she plays for herself. Her debut album To Enjoy is the Only Thing is out June 25th.
Maple Glider will be part of the First Fifty online showcase on Thursday 18th November 2021.
