When you think of big UK music talent you picture Dua Lipa, Adele and Little Mix amongst others. Well, have we got news for you, Mae Muller is about to join this epic roster of talent and we’re getting a front row seat!
Singer, songwriter and professional baddie in our eyes, Mae Muller, 23, confesses that perhaps her passion behind performing came from growing up in her North London family home, fighting for all attention to be on her — blame it on middle child syndrome — although she confesses that her parents went on to have more children, her passion for showcasing her talents didn’t go away:
“I’d stand on the coffee table and sing songs and force everyone to have a look at me. I was always just that annoying kid.” she reveals as she virtually sits down to kiki with GLAMOUR.
It’s obvious that Mae has been working on her impeccable stage presence and her captivating flair for performing for some time, with a unique sound that has the power to span generations.
However, Mae Muller didn’t actually get into music until she turned 19. She reveals that she struggled to find a way in, so resorted to where some of the greats like Justin Bieber and Adele did — social media. “I started putting videos of me singing on Instagram and I put a song up on SoundCloud and then from there it just kind of snowballed. I started getting into sessions and just making more and more music and working on improving my writing skills.”
Mae Muller is now working on her latest music projects and is the ambassador for Love, MeMeMe – a Gen-Z, forward-thinking wellness and skincare brand. We managed to squeeze into her busy schedule to talk all things music, therapy and sharing advice for young women that money can’t buy…
My musical taste comes from listening to Dixie Chicks CDs on long car drives…
“Both of my parents are big music lovers. My grandparents used to live in Wales and I remember being in the car with my mom on these really long car journeys to see them. She’d put on the Dixie Chicks’ album, Home, and I just fell in love with it. I loved their songwriting and storytelling. I just thought it was so beautiful. I think that was really instilled in me from a young age.
My mom then bought me the All Right, Still album by Lily Allen, and I was definitely too young for those stories, but that was another album that has kind of changed my life. I was like, ‘Who is this girl? She just says whatever she wants, how she wants to say it, telling these insane stories.’ I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I want to do that’ and obviously because she’s singing with her London accent, I really heard myself there, I thought it was amazing. It’s started my love story for music and storytelling.”
I want to be able to create music that you hear, see and feel…
