"For me, songwriting comes from a place of wanting to find the truth in life. Sometimes that truth is so complex and nuanced that it requires a whole song to explain," shares Maria Maita-Keppeler, the principal songwriter and front person for the Portland, Oregon-based indie rock band MaitaMaita-Keppeler's bold vulnerability and literate flair is on full display on the quartet's debut album, Best Wishes

The album will be out on venerated indie imprint Kill Rock Stars (‪Elliott Smith, ‪Sleater-Kinney, ‪the Decemberists) which is a story in itself. Until recently, KRS was headed up by Portia Sabin, whose husband Slim Moon founded the label. When Portia played Maita's record for Slim, who retired from the label 12 years ago, he experienced something of an epiphanic moment. "My love of Maita, and my belief in Maria's songwriting, pulled me back into the record business," Slim affirms. He has since returned to his original role as president of Kill Rock Stars.

Best Wishes balances ethereal musicality with visceral expressiveness. This juxtaposition is mirrored in the arrangements through potent use of loud and soft dynamics and in Maita-Keppeler's lyrics, which manage to be layered, literate, but also impactfully concise.
