Toronto's Quirky Indie Soul artist Maylee Todd choosing her own adventures!

Now supporting Woodhands, The Golden Dogs and Aloe Blacc on upcoming Canadian Tour dates

After a busy and successful summer, Maylee Todd and her band are off on new and exciting adventures! They'll be supporting indie-tronica duo Woodhands on an upcoming tour that starts in Vancouver and ends in Peterborough, she’ll also be supporting one of the hottest soul artists around-- the sensational Aloe Blacc whose hit “I Need A Dollar†has become anthem of the recession -- at the closing party for the Nu Jazz Festival on Monday, November 15th in Toronto at Wrongbar.

Maylee Todd, one of Canada’s most exciting new music acts, is spreading an infectious energy around like wildfire. With the vocal chords of an angel, charismatic stage presence and a string of soulful pop tunes, this bright, young spark is turning heads by reinventing tropical grooves. Maylee first gained national exposure as a guest vocalist on Woodhands singles “Dissembler†and “Dancer,†and through collaborations with the likes of Henri Faberge and the Adorables, Peter Project and Circle Research. Now Toronto-based Maylee introduces us to her band Pegwee Power and their debut album Choose Your Own Adventure (released on Do Right Music in June. 2010). The group, which started as a solo act, with just Maylee on her harp, guitar and tenori accompanied by a looping station, now consists of Andrew Scott (synth) Eric Woolston (vibraphone & drums) and Chris Kettlewell (upright bass & accordion).

Maylee injects a unique element of humour into much of her art, which also explains her eccentric choice of attire on the album’s cover and on stage. Her outrageous new video "Aerobics in Space" (view video here) has created an incredible buzz on social networks since the launch only three weeks ago. “I think the idea of doing any sort of physical activity in space is pretty funny,†she explains. Since going viral, the video has been added to MuchMusic and now in rotation on The Wedge.

Following a recent performance at Pop Montreal to a capacity crowd and an incredible summer festival season that included The Evolve Festival and Harbourfront's World Routes Festival; Maylee Todd now embarks on her first solo tour to the west coast promoting her quirky, light hearted stage show and debut release to unsuspecting audiences.

"Todd's delicate vocals and detailed harp work sooth the soul on the adventurous 'Pegwee Power!!!' while the star and her talented backing players channel their inner funk, complete with dancing horns, a mid-cut drum breakdown and the ringleader's inspired screams on fitting closer "Aerobics In Space - Exclaim Magazine
