Maud Hixson

Singer/Song Stylist

January 13, 2020

Hailed as “gently virtuosic” (All About Jazz), Maud Hixson is a devoted exponent of great songs, ranging from
the classic Great American Songbook to the often unsung or for gotten compositions awaiting rediscovery.
Based in Saint Paul Minnesota, “Hixson’s slightly gauzy tone and breezy singing evokes cool-school singers of
the 1950’s.” If you like cool, artful story telling in jazz, check her out.
