Groove – Episode #42: Mai Leisz
She just turned thirty, but she is an old soul. It’s for this reason that she has fit in performing with artists like David Crosby, Joan Baez, Jackson Browne, Seal and others. Mai Leisz (formerly Mai Agan) is a curious and engaging bass player. The Estonian born composer started on classical violin and piano. At the age of 16, she picked up the electric bass.
After moving to Sweden she found herself touring and playing with the best of the best from both Estonia and Sweden. Then, on a fateful day, while busking in Stockholm she ran into Greg Leisz and Bob Glaub from Jackson Browne. Things have never been the same since.
Mai’s story is almost as magical as her playing. And, while young in years, her style and attitude are strong and powerful… and in demand.
Enjoy the conversation…
