Upon receiving her M.A. in music composition, Melody continued to work on her craft as a singer-songwriter, and subsequently released her E.P. in February 2015. Her recent single “Lightning Strikes” received rave reviews, peaking at position 5 in the Hot 100 Charts on LLUVIA FM Radio in Spain, leading Good Times Magazine to say, “It’s a light, airy, and sexy love song; it moves along with a pleasing, lightly rocking pace…All in all, given the solid groove and the great instrumental performances as well, this single is a tasteful triumph.”
Her voice will hit you first. Pure in quality and heartbreaking in nature, this is not a voice you hear everyday. Add award winning songwriting and deceivingly good guitar playing and you have the makings of an experienced performing singer/songwriter, often mistaken for being older than her 24 years. Based in Huntington, Long Island, Kirsten Maxwell has garnered a strong hometown following; the cornerstone of her fast rise in the music scene.
