Ellyn Maybe is a prolific international sensation who has impressed the likes of Henry Rollins, Jackson Browne and was featured reading her work in the film Dancing At The Blue Iguana. More remarkable still, is her humble enthusiasm for the craft and her imaginative sensibility.
Ellyn Maybe is a grand alchemist of spoken word, teasing the elements of music and transcendence then fusing them together. She is a puppeteer of epic wordplay and refreshingly, a slightly off-key instrument of expression, vulnerability and humor.
