Artist Intro: Maitri

Creating in Brooklyn, NY, Maitri is a new sound that reflects modern day struggle and offers hope for a better reality. In the release of Today/Flying Stars, gospel returns to Africa and country-western meets outer space.

“Imagine David Bowie producing a show featuring Sam Cooke songs as played by the Dirty Projectors.”

Translated from Sanskrit, Maitri (”my tree”) is an unconditional friendship and acceptance of yourself that extends outward to the world. This group was formed by Caroline Davis (voice/woodwinds) to embrace both the hardship and ecstasy of life through song, and it is now a collective songwriting outlet for both herself and Ben Hoffmann (voice/keyboards).

Featuring driving keyboards and a powerful rhythm section led by Sam Weber (bass) and Jay Sawyer (drums), Maitri incorporates a heavy dose of soul and R&B, while also drawing upon indie influences. A unique sound in the Brooklyn musical landscape, Maitri is the soundtrack for the inevitable ushering in of the new world order.

Myself, being from NY, born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, there has always been a wealth of new talent, and now, more than ever the need for positive imagery in music with insightful and innovative creation is being met head on and with powerful expression. Maitri is taking from the past and molding it to meet the sound of the future, where Soul, R&B, Jazz and Rock melt to create a “Super-Beat” that crosses the boundaries and appeal to all music lovers.
