Based in the beating heart of record production, Los Angeles, Australian artist George Maple is on the rise once again. Her resume features US number #1 records and sell out shows from Paris to Sydney in her work as an enigmatic artist, ghostwriter and producer. Maple has written and produced hits for global superstars such as DJ Snake, Hayden James, Flume, What So Not and more, making her one of the most in-demand and successful Australian exports to be recognised on the international music scene. Last year Maple was invited to join the Recording Academy, the prestigious society of music professionals behind the GRAMMYs, and attended the esteemed event in Los Angeles.
Maple’s 2017 debut LP ‘Lover’ received glowing reviews from critics and fans alike, and debuted at #2 on the Australian iTunes Charts, establishing her as a household name in Australian music. Supporting the release of her record, Maple toured with global superstar Lorde, R&B powerhouse 6LACK and embarked upon her own sold-out Australian headline tour. Now, the producer, vocalist and multi-media artist has delivered her infectious new single ‘Superhuman’.
‘Superhuman’ sees Maple taking the reins with production duties, alongside alongside US producer 1-900, who has consistently delivered hit tracks via international star Joey Bada$$. Also collaborating on the track are Australian music darlings, What So Not, with whom Maple wrote the 2015 hit, Gemini. Maple’s vocal leads the way, gliding through punchy production of ‘Superhuman,’ with a self-realised, care-free attitude.
Drawing inspiration from real-life experience, Maple opens up about her personal connection with ‘Superhuman’, “This song is basically a reflection of where I’m at in my life at the moment… It’s about new romance and being open to new opportunities. Let your super-freak flag fly.” Launching her uncompromising live show, UTOPIA, in Melbourne earlier this year, Maple developed the concept to represent her passion and drive to change the world through art. Maple explains, “At heart I am a Utopian. I believe art can change the world. By celebrating unique and meaningful artistry we can contribute to this powerful change.”
