Maud Hixson

Maud Hixson grew up in Minnesota, and became a full-time musician after being named "Best New Voice" at a local jazz festival in 2003. She has since worked with a variety of musicians, from the Wolverines to Warren Vaché. She made her Guthrie Theater debut in 2010, performed for the New York Cabaret Convention in 2011 at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rose Hall, and in October, 2012, appeared in concert with composer and pianist Richard Rodney Bennett as part of the Midtown Jazz Series in New York City. A two-time recipient of the Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, she raised over $10,000 via a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the first album dedicated to the music of composer Michael "Mickey" Leonard. Recorded at Nola Recording Studios in February, the album features new arrangements by pianist Tex Arnold, and Maud is also joined by bassist Steve LaSpina, cornetist Warren Vaché, and guitarist Gene Bertoncini. The album, "Don't Let A Good Thing Get Away" will be released May 1st, 2013.
