JPR Live Session: Maiah Wynne

Maiah Wynne is a multi-instrumentalist, one-woman tour de force, with a show that appeals to people of all ages and backgrounds. Throughout her performances, Maiah fluently transitions through unique and traditional instruments, like the dulcimer, oil can ukulele, keys, and guitar, while her feet do the percussive work. 

Adept at embodying a mood or theme in one song and then swapping it for another, what emerges is a shifting and engaging experience threaded through by Wynne’s haunting, evocative voice and earnest lyrics.

Wynne has performed on large stages and in intimate settings including featured appearances at Sundance Film Festival and South by Southwest. Maiah most recently placed second in The Museum of Pop Culture's Sound Off 2018 competition, and she toured as a featured artist with Portland Cello Project in May.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and conversations.
