Years of brotherhood, self-proclaimed and genetic, have created the Indie/folk/rock band Maitland.
Pulling influences from Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, and woodsy expeditions, Maitland has transformed from a
minimalist folk duo into a rock quartet. With the release of the band’s first album, “(from a cabin in the
woods),” Josh Hines (vocals/guitar/songwriter), toured subway systems in the North East cities like
Boston, Philadelphia, New York, etc. Once it was time to make more noise, Josh Hines invited his brother,
Alex Hines (bass/vocals), Evan Moffitt (guitar), and Adam Shumski (drums) to the stage. Capitalizing on
the versatility of the folk iterations, Maitland’s live performances express backwoods rustic elements
paired with driving percussion and unforgettable melodies. Evan Moffitt creates a comfortable blanket of
atmosphere to lay over Maitland’s three part harmonies, haunting falsettos, and dynamic percussion.
