Mae Moore wears many hats. As a composer, she co-wrote the massive hit “Heaven in Your Eyes” for the Top Gun soundtrack. As a recording artist, she was a major label success story on CBS/Sony, scoring nine top forty hits, two Juno nominations and two SOCAN Awards for commercial radio airplay, as well as having her songs placed in several television series. She has toured and shared the stage with a diversity of musicians including Marianne Faithful, Morrissey, Crosby, Stills and Nash, John Hiatt, and Pete Seeger to name but a few.
As an indie artist, she and her husband, slide guitarist Lester Quitzau, were the focus of a BravoTV documentary project, when their collaborative recording Oh My! was released in 2004. More recently, Mae received a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for her latest (2011) recording and companion art book titled, Folklore. Her guitar style of jazz and folk/rock is built on a foundation of alternate tunings that sets her sound apart.
Born in Brandon, Manitoba in February of 1956, Mae is Canada’s quintessential bohemian, a musician, painter, and longtime environmentalist who has lived all over Canada, and now lives on a small island in British Columbia, growing organic apples, and painting.
