Helen Maw is singer/songwriter and musician from Liverpool. She began writing her own music in her teens and has performed her songs in venues across Liverpool and even as far as Madrid. She writes a mixture of soulful and classically inspired pop and loves to perform and write as much as she can.
Her main musical influences include artists such as Amy Macdonald, Carole King and Joan Armatrading. Like the artists that she admires, Helen aims to write songs that tell stories of life and connect with her listeners. Combining heartfelt lyrics with catchy melodies, Helen writes about the world around her and everyday life.
A multi instrumentalist, Helen has been independently releasing her own music since 2019. Her most recent single ‘Playing With Fire’ has received radio play across the UK, Europe and even America. She was named ‘Artist of the Week’ on Mersey Radio in
May 2020 after releasing her debut EP ‘Everything in Between.’
In 2020, she co-founded Satellite Music and Events, a female led organisation which aims to support emerging artists and provide them with coverage and opportunities they may not be able to
usually have access to.
In April 2021, Helen released her third single 'Wait'. The song has been her most successful single to date and has been played on radio stations across the world, including multiple plays on BBC Introducing Merseyside and Amazing Radio. The track is still currently receiving daily radio play across the UK. 'Wait' was accompanied by a lyric video which featured various shots of the city of Liverpool, shot by Helen herself.
"Wait" has been described by Helen Maw as "one of those songs that can be applied to a number of relationships. I didn't really have a specific one in mind but it is about when someone you love is going through a bad time and they can't seem to see a way out. It is from the perspective of trying to rationalise with them and say that they'll wait for them"
