Maz O'Connor Biography

Maz O’Connor’s songs are short stories wrapped in a unique soundscape.

Maz O’Connor’s songs are short stories wrapped in a unique soundscape. They combine acoustic instruments, folk imagery, electronic soundscapes and, of course, O’Connor’s ethereal vocals. 

 A millennial meeting of Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, heartbreak, longing, and a taste for irony remain constant touchstones. Other influences include Paula Rego, Mary Oliver, Nina Simone, Bjork, Pina Bausch, Flannery O’Connor, Marc Chagall, Emily Dickinson, Toni Morrison, plainsong chant, sessions in Irish pubs, urban foxes, and the lonely moon.

Her new album, co-written and co-produced with composer Will Gardner (Alt J, Lapsley), is an ambitious song-cycle set in the city at night. It explores themes of anxiety, isolation, inequality, capitalism, insomnia, regret, sexuality, spirituality, absent friends, and the search for redemption in an age of consumerism.
