Crafted as a chronological storyboard of emotional upheaval, this new album encapsulates Davies’ journey through the stages of relationship grief. But don’t expect a mere lamentation; “Lovers’ Gothic” skillfully blends elements of pop and classical music, infusing poignant melodies and velvety vocals to soothe the soul. Recorded in top-tier studios across the country, Maïa enlisted a stellar lineup of collaborators, including Marcus Paquin (Begonia), Erin Costelo (Kaïa Kater), David Mohacsi (Rêve, Mother Mother), and more, to co-produce this raw and evocative collection.

Maïa Davies is not just an artist; she’s a force in the music industry. A bilingual, Juno and ECMA nominated producer, songwriter, and recording artist, Davies boasts an impressive resume. As a founding member of Warner Music Canada group Ladies of the Canyon, she’s delivered a dozen top-ten Canadian commercial radio hits and earned accolades like the SOCAN #1 songwriter award and ECMA nominations. Davies is also a dedicated advocate for women in music, actively involved in initiatives like the National Arts Centre’s Global Network of Female-Identifying Music Producers. With over a decade of experience in artist development, she’s mentored both major label and independent artists.

Beyond her solo endeavors, Davies is one half of Montreal indie band Darkometro and has lent her talents to numerous Canadian recordings, collaborating with artists like The Dears, Serena Ryder, and Kevin Hearn. Based in Montreal, Davies’ influence extends far beyond Canada, with work taking her to cities across North America and Europe.
