Maylee Todd

Acts of Love

DO RIGHT! MUSIC

Released: 3rd November 2017 | 17 track neo-soul album

Toronto-based songwriter, vocalist, producer, and multi-disciplinary artist Maylee Todd is best known for music that incorporates elements of disco, funk, soul, electronic, and experimental sounds. Her previous two albums Choose Your Own Adventure (2010) and Escapology (2013) brought her on tour across North America, Europe and Asia, charting worldwide, and establishing her as a breakout Canadian indie artist.

Her third studio album Acts of Love 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 a sonic standpoint, the new album marks a departure from the harder-edged sounds of her previous work, boasting a more stripped down, synth-based production approach, with hypnotic beats and undeniably poppy hooks. The 17 track album covers a wide range of timely, topical and universal subject matter, including gender bias (From This Moment), addiction (One of These Days), solitude (Lonely), forgiveness (Eye To Eye), polyamory (Goat Wut U Need) and virtual reality (Virtual Life).

This record is a bedroom record. I spent the winter writing and learning software, so creating can be limitless, explains the self-professed augmented reality nerd. Acts Of Love is essentially a tale of Maylee's metamorphosis, of constantly mutating and evolving musically, with the ultimate goal being to enlighten listeners on the symbiotic relationship between music, technology, performance art and human nature.

"modern pop and r&b flourishes with a dreamy Tom Tom Club afterglow. Something for the night time, the right time and those tranquil moments between."

"Todd conveys an openness to possibilities that's exhilarating"
NPR Music
"The warmth of the arrangements and the smooth grace of the melodies make Acts of Love an easy record to cuddle up with. It's also an impressive work of auteurism"
All Music
"Todd's penchant for evolving as an artist—both inside of music and in her other visual endeavors—makes her work thrilling because she feeds her creative spirit, not adhering to a trend"
Noisey
"On Acts of Love, Todd has found herself — not committed to any particular genre, but to music highly rooted in authenticity, integrity and emotional complexity"
