Exploring the musical legacy of Prince and beyond
Mae Simpson formed “Mae Simpson Music” in the fall of 2017. Originally from South Carolina, Mae moved to Minneapolis on a whim. Her gut was right, as Mae Simpson has turned into one of the cites best bands. The band has built a broad collection of original music that refuses to fall neatly into a single genre. Blistering funk and dance music, to blues, jazz, rock, and even a little hip hop. In the spring of 2018, the band won the Battle of the Blues Bands at Famous Dave’s Minneapolis, and opened the Lowertown Blues Festival. Since that time, Mae Simpson has been nominated for many “Best Of’s”; winning the City Pages “Reader’s Choice Best New Band”, and most recently was named one of First Avenue’s “Best New Band of 2019”.
