Saskia Maxwell is a songwriter, singer, guitarist, flutist and dancer who has performed close to 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 act, Saskia is also a part of the psychedelic music project Silas & Saski. Their Latest release ‘ Power Of Three’,
released by Erpsongs label, is a myriad of sonic blasts, soaring vocals and angel choirs, accompanied by powerful basslines and “to the skies” guitars, nestled in a bed of multilayered synthesis. The EP features members from the early days of Ozric Tentacles, including the founder Ed Wynne with a guitar solo of epic scope, Tom Brooks making EMS Synthi bubbles and percussion from Paul Hankin. S&S fuse together many genres including electronic music, folk, space rock, prog, ethnic, psychedelic, dub / reggae and traces of metal.
In 2021 Saskia joined the legendary Ozric Tentacles on stage, playing flute with them at 02 Shepherds Bush Empire, 02 Academy Sheffield, Equinox Festival and OBTC Festival.
