"Mae has a vocal range that immediately made me feel like I was watching a young Janis Joplin take control of a crowd and the keyboards, drums, bass, and the saxophone were reminiscent of Van Morrison."
– Music in Minnesota
“It’s impossible to stand still during a Mae Simpson Music set. Simpson’s raspy, dynamic voice is larger than life — but not as large as her uncontainable energy that radiates from the stage … Nearly every song included audience participation, and Simpson had the crowd jumping, clapping, and singing along.” —The Current

Formed in the fall of 2017, Mae Simpson Band has built a broad collection of original music that refuses to fall neatly into a single genre. Blistering funk and dance music mixed with soul, blues, country, calypso, jazz, rock, and even a little hip hop — bringing the crowd to their feet every time. In the spring of 2018 the band won the Battle of the Blues Bands at Famous Dave’s and opened the Lowertown Blues Festival. Since that time Mae has been a Nominee for City Pages “Best New Band and Best Live Concert.” Going on to WIN City Pages Reader’s Choice Best New Band.
