Let The Journey Begin . . .
Hi, I’m Mae Challis
I’m a singer, songwriter and musician from the Isle of Man.
2018 has been incredibly busy for me so far! I was fortunate enough to secure some sponsorship which has enabled me to take time out from all other obligations so that I can concentrate on my song writing, musical technique and development. I have also been able to focus on my new acoustic set.
I’ve played quite a few live acoustic shows on the Island and in the UK so far this year. It’s been so well received that I’m planning to develop my live profile further afield. I feel that I’ve definitely improved and developed my own style now and I’m really looking forward to getting out there more!
I recently spent time in Wales working on some of my songs with top producer Steve Bush (Stereophonics, Ocean Colour Scene, Corinne Bailey Rae). I then flew to Malta to record a duet of one of my songs ‘Is It Strange’ with Maltese star Joe Roscoe. To have someone else singing one of my songs was truly magical. Something I never thought I’d achieve!
I also recorded and filmed one of my Isle of Man acoustic shows in May and the CD and DVD of the evening was released on 5th July! It’s called ‘Mae Challis Live at Bath and Bottle’ and I think it represents my new sound perfectly! I’m very proud of this album! It was an opportunity to be completely me and showcase all the hard work I put in leading up to the evening of the recording. Performing live is my favourite setting so for me, this was perfect. I hope you enjoy listening to the recording as much as I did performing it! X!
