Saskia Maxwell is a songwriter, singer, multi instrumentalist and dancer who has performed over 1000 shows across the UK and Europe over the last decade. Saskia's more recent performances display a new found purpose and grace and are suggestive of a move towards a more otherworldly and ethereal folk style. Her songs are explorative of many moods and perspectives that share a common purpose of being spiritually provocative and invigorating, with beautiful soaring vocals and intricate finger picking guitar.
Saskia weaves devotion & spirituality into her music and dance performances and draws inspiration from many sources.
As well as working as a solo performer, Saskia is also a part of the psychedelic band Silas & Saski. in 2020 Silas & Saski released ‘Power Of Three' on Ozric's Erpsongs label.

S&S fuse together many genres including electronic music, folk, space rock, prog, Turkish, Arabic / Oriental, psychedelic, dub / reggae with traces of metal.
