Awards

Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grants: 2006, 2008
Her vocal style is so warm, intimate and compelling–it’s clear that she cares about the words and telling the story, with clarity and without artifice– practically a lost art these days. MICHAEL FEINSTEIN, PIANIST, SINGER, HISTORIAN

Maud knows how to sing to you. Her style is so efficient, moving and always true to the meaning of the lyric and the integrity of a great melody. It makes her liberties all the more expressive. It’s refreshing to hear a great singer who knows it’s really all about the song. MICHAEL JOHNSON, SINGER/SONGWRITER/GUITARIST

Maud is a very special young lady with a great gift to communicate to her audience. Her voice is so beautiful. She has the magic. SANDY STEWART, SINGER

I think she’s the new Peggy Lee; a young singer out of the Midwest. If you like cool, artful storytelling in jazz, check her out! AMANDA MCBROOM, SINGER/SONGWRITER (“THE ROSE”)

Maud sounds wonderful. Strong and sure and musical. She’s got an honesty that is real and comes across easily. She is a talented lady. Working with her is a pleasure. WARREN VACHÉ, CORNETIST

The simplicity and grace of her singing is stunning. LAUREL MASSÉ, SINGER (MANHATTAN TRANSFER)
