Biography

Maeve O'Boyle is a singer songwriter from Glasgow, Scotland, who has a knack for writing catchy pop songs with a folk twist and all topped off with a powerful voice that is capable of blowing away any audience. It is testament to her talent and standing that she has a queue of other writers and musicians wanting to work with her including Ricky Ross (Deacon Blue, James Blunt), John McCusker (Kate Rusby, Roddy Woomble, Battlefield Band), Gordon Gourdie (Echo & The Bunnymen) and John McLaughlin (Busted, Westlife, Shane MacGowan).

Performing music from an early age, Maeve was already an established face on the Glasgow music scene by the age of 15 but first came to most peoples attention when she won a 'Danny' after appearing on the Danny Kyle stage at Celtic Connections in 2006. Later that year she also won the Daily Record's 'Search For A Star'. Several offers of record deals came and went before Maeve decided to sign for the independent label Linn Records. Linn is best known for the manufacture of high end hi fi equipment and has been the home of acts including The Blue Nile, Hue & Cry and Martin Taylor to name but a few.

Maeve went into the studio with legendary producer Calum Malcolm to start work on her debut album in 2008 with the fruits of her labour being All My Sins. Released in June 2009, the album received critical acclaim from all quarters. The release of the album saw her take to the road to promote the record, including tours with Sandi Thom, Eleanor McEvoy, The Mercurymen, JJ Cale, Boo Hewerdine and Martyn Joseph.

Having taken a self imposed break from music, Maeve went back in the studio in 2011, again working with Calum Malcolm, to release her acoustic EP, Intermissions.
