Sat atop a creaky old rooftop deck on a late May evening. San Francisco falls under a blanket of fog and lulls the city sounds to hum to a slower rhythm. Huddled humans speak in buzzed banter. Cold hands hugging drinks filled with liquid warmth and fuzzy moments in the making. Gentle cheers join the whistling wind and Mae Powell stands before us comfortably basking in the golden glow of swaying string lights.
Mae Powell. A vessel of melodic love. A speaker of wonderment. A creator of sweet melodies dripping with honey tones. Goosebumps rise as night falls and the words she croons are sweet and serious all at once. Small smiles and closed eyes are signs of contemplation and blissful listening. The collective mood rises and falls like the tides of the sun and moon and Mae’s voice grows with the flowers that sprout from her lush garden of words.
Raspy ruminating words reveal wisdom running wild roaming with real wholehearted revelations of love. Her idea of love is a beautiful one. An all encompassing kind of love. Love as a whole and love in its infinite pieces. Rummaging around inside the idea of love - she speaks of its ability to permeate beyond one being, thing, or feeling - something that often gets lost in perceptions of love. Mae leaves you to ruminate in her parting words as she sings sweetly...
“When I say, I say that I love you
It's really just the universe pouring love back into itself
Magick love. Magick love. Magick love. Magick love.”

About The Curator - Maria Fish
You can most often find Maria in her garden humming along to an eclectic playlist titled “Life’s a Garden, Dig It” and of course tending to her beloved plants. This garden is located on the island of Kaua’i at her childhood home surrounded by tropical fruit trees and flowers. Beautiful music has always gone hand in hand with the beauty of the island. Just as she nurtures her plants, she looks forward to nurturing this playlist and the community of music lovers that feel like stopping by and having a listen.
