Episode

Ni Maxine is a Neo-Jazz Singer-Songwriter; a black woman navigating the modern world and exploring themes of home, identity, self-esteem and belonging. Maxine’s childhood was steeped in the deep cultural reference points of black history. She recalls her father’s love of jazz, her mother’s love of neo-soul, funk and rare groove, as well as her Sunday mornings in a gospel church, where she first learned to sing.

Her message is clear; “I want to inspire young people who are having (or had) a similar experience to what I had, growing up, and cultivate community. The algorithm divides us, but we are more powerful when we are united.”

Ni Maxine is popping in to share some soulful selections before she heads off to the North East to open up for Madeleine Peyroux, to kick off her first UK ‘tour’. Get tickets now!
