Growing up in the wild and rugged countryside of the west of Ireland, Maija Sofia's childhood solitude instilled an early devotion to songwriting. Leaving the stillness of the west behind, Maija spent several years submerged in the chaos of cities between Dublin and London, letting life unfold rapidly and alchemise into strikingly singular songs.

Writing mostly at night, an innate nocturnal intimacy permeates Maija’s deft lyricism, and in 2019, Bath Time, her critically acclaimed debut LP arrived via Trapped Animal, announcing Maija as an accomplished songwriter whose unwavering eloquence and storytelling set her far apart from her contemporaries.

Bath Time garnered widespread praise and a coveted Album of the Year nomination at the RTÉ Choice Music Prize.

A recipient of the Arts Council of Ireland’s prestigious Next Generation Award, Maija has since been commissioned to write new compositions by several revered cultural institutions, including the National Concert Hall, Sirius Arts Centre and Cork Midsummer Festival. Now performing with a full band, Maija’s sound is continuously evolving and expanding in its breadth.
