More by Mauve

Life happens. Changes can break you. But music gives you the chance to create a new story.

If you ask singer-songwriter Mauve what she feels about creating music, she says it has the ability to take you to an altered reality. Mauve wants to give homage to the transforming powers of music, to revitalize you despite discouraging and less-than-ideal situations.

A rich voice in a small frame, while growing up Mauve was constantly inspired by theatrical performances, and she turned to the keys of her piano to bring forth that passion into her everyday life. From the age of 14, she has worn her heart on her sleeve as she has learned to play and write her own songs. Now, her music has gained over 150,000 streams on Spotify and counting.

There is a certain edgy sensibility that she brings to her music. You can tell in her live performances, which she believes are the best part of being a musician and singer, that she has a natural ability to bring energy to the stage, which moves her listeners to a better place.

Influenced by the deep and emotional vocals of Amy Winehouse and Sia, you can feel the vulnerability in Mauve’s lyrics, as they are placed over a catchy, tropical house beat. She gives credit to Toronto for providing many outlets and opportunities to explore different styles of music through its vibrancy and the diversity of its people.

“The Sound is a romantic connection to the energies that flow within when life is sparked by inspiration, when The Sound of life itself moves you. This track is simply beautiful, bouncy and the rhythms driving, the music has the ebb and flow, like the waves on the sea shore, drawing you into the undertows of joyous raptures.”

“Nice vocals, mixdown of it is clear and powerful. The balance between the vocals and the music is well-managed. Track is full of good vibes, pleasing to hear! Good job.”

“Things are getting hot outside with some added sweetness! Mauve released her single Sweetness on May 11, 2018. Here is the details about the song: ‘Sweetness’, combines different genres to create a unique sound, from ethnic percussions to modern EDM beats. Also, with its different energy levels, ‘Sweetness’ takes the listener on a journey. “I can never be simple or static with a song that I am making”. Coming up with a strong musical theatre influence, Mauve is always striving to create music that is dramatic and from the heart, in whatever form or emotion it may be conveying. This time, ‘Sweetness’ follows the theme of the “chase”, when you’re playing the game of love in our fast-paced world. One of those pop songs that will be in played on Top 40 radio. Great tune to listen to in a park or beach during the summer time.”

– Ming Wu

“Singer/songwriter with an eclectic, soul-jarring but playful sound; Mauve transcends genres to bring you feel-good tracks with hints of Jazz through Tropical House and EDM production. Since her last release, ‘The Sound’, Mauve raised the bar high for anything that would follow. In her release “Sweetness”, Mauve dedicates to that person that you just can’t stop thinking about, because they bring a certain feel and flavour to your life that can only be described as sweet.”

– Concert Monkey

“Few artists are able to provide listeners with a full sense of whom they are with just a single song, but Sweetness, the latest effort from Mauve, does a tremendous job in showcasing a bevy of styles and approaches used by the performer. What we were most impressed by with Mauve’s new single is how effortlessly she is able to go and blend together a number of styles that would seem to work at cross purposes. This means that a tried and true late 20th century sound (drawing heavily on pop, R&B and even Broadway) is dovetailed with an EDM backdrop. The production is lush and allows each element of the track to shine, all while coming forth as something that listeners have never heard before.”

– James McQuiston, NeuFutur

“The Sound is the sultry single from Canadian electro-pop artist Mauve. In Mauve’s own words, the track is about how music can keep you going through periods of change and as a listener it comes through loud and clear. Starting her musical career, Mauve has a big future ahead of her.”

– York Calling

“From the first moments of the song you feel the beautiful and distinctive voice of Mauve in your soul, this will make you repeat the song again and again.”

– Indie Music Home

“Playing piano, guitar, composing, writing lyrics, and (for our greatest pleasure) singing with charisma, MAUVE is remarkable for her several musical skills. Plus, nowadays even more important than artistic talent, MAUVE has this entrepreneurial mind-set to drive her far on the path to success. This young artist from Toronto builds her musical identity step by step with chic and perseverance. First recording covers from various music genres as pop, rock or jazz, she got inspired by the iconic Sia, Arctic Monkeys and Amy Winehouse. When she finally launched her own sound a year ago, she turned to electro-pop soundscapes.”

– Musical GlobeTrotter (Dec 20, 2018)

“Sweet and bubbly, heartfelt and flirty—it’s a tale of longing and love from afar…the kind of track perfect as a soundtrack for late summer romances and mischief. Repeated listens began to call up memories within me I had thought long forgotten—flashes of infatuation and of crushes past. Vicariously experiencing the thrill of falling for someone through her skillful lyricism and noticeably rich voice is a real treat. It’s truly a welcomed bit of hopeful escapism from the troubled world of today. Though still early in her career, Mauve seems to possess an intuitive knack for navigating the tropes and of conventions of the current day pop landscape.”

– Aurora Campbell, Best Kept Montreal

“Feel-good, fresh summer track for your pool parties or night out pre-games”

– Welsh Da God

“Toronto-based singer/songwriter Mauve has just unveiled her brand new single Come Around. This is a very cool piece of pop music with catchy electronics and its laid-back vibe is perfect for the weekend. Mauve’s smooth and dulcet vocals are quite captivating and, along with the infectious chorus, make the song stand out and soon you’ll start humming it.”
