WATCH | Discover Toronto's Maylee Todd Through Her Latest Visuals For "Downtown"

Polymath. Free thinker. Psychonaut. Jill-of-all-trades. Renaissance womyn.

Toronto-based multi-disciplinary artist, vocalist and producer Maylee Todd has been called many things. But the one thing her artistic and musical output has been consistently called is stimulating.

“a body of work that is much more about music for me”

Maylee’s playlist of songs can be viewed more as MANTRAS inspired by her psychonautic lyrical approach, and her interest in science fiction, human psychology, and unconventional thinking. She just released the music video for one of her singles "Downtown" - a colourful artsy VHS-style video showcasing her bigger-than-life aesthetics that just capture your attention right away. 

Given that Maylee’s creativity takes direct inspiration from her working in a wide range of artistic disciplines; song-writing, film, performance art, comedy, 3-D projection mapping and design, it should come as no surprise that she added album “producer” to her repertoire, having produced all 17 of the songs on the album. In fact, Acts of Love is characterized by an “in-the-box” studio approach that sees Maylee wholly embracing technology and taking on the role of producer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist, recording and playing the bulk of the music in her home studio.

From the new album 'Acts Of Love' out Nov 3.
