[From Facebook] Edmonton-born Mae Anderson is a talented singer-songwriter intent on living her passion for music to the fullest. Charming and charismatic, Mae got an early start performing for an audience when, at the age of three, she snuck up onstage when her parents weren’t looking to sing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.”
At 18, Mae has already tasted more than a twinkle of stardom. Two years previous, she landed a distribution deal with Universal Music Canada, which released her first CD, Off the Floor, recorded in Montreal. She also ventured to Las Vegas to collaborate with Yves Frulla, Celine Dion’s music director, on a nationally-released Yuletide single, “Perfect Christmas.” In 2010, she was chosen to sing the specially-commissioned torch relay anthem “There’s A Light/Cette Flamme” at Sir Winston Churchill Square to herald the Edmonton arrival of the official beacon for the Vancouver Winter Olympics. And she was the youngest artist selected to perform at Alberta Showcase 2010, an event facilitated by the Arts Touring Alliance of Alberta.
Prior to her CD release in 2009, Mae enjoyed a great deal of success with her first single “Rainy Day,” which received airplay on more than a dozen stations in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes, including a number-two slot on Joliette, Que. FM station 103.5 FM. “Rainy Day,” which was added onto Off the Floor, also received airplay in Alberta on Joe FM, CBC Radio One, CHFA and CKUA, when the fluently-bilingual Mae started showcasing her release during Edmonton Chante, Edmonton’s francophone music and arts festival. Additional accolades over the tune included Song of the Week status in Quebec music trade magazine Palmares, while the song reached No. 28 in the Top 50 countdown facilitated by l’ADISQ, Quebec’s official music association. One media pundit even declared Mae as “the Pearl from the West.” in September, 2009.
Choosing to go independent in 2010, Mae is currently at work adding to her music catalogue with a range of pop-oriented songs, displaying a maturity that defies her teen years. Future plans include another release and more live showcases, as the performer also tries to finish high school. In the meantime, fans can track her progress on Facebook.
