ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mai Bloomfield writes songs, sings and plays guitar and cello. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, her musical path started with cello at age nine. From grade school up to college, Mai played in symphonies and chamber groups, traveling to internationally, receiving awards in various orchestral competitions. When she was 16 she got her first guitar and, fueled with a love of poetry, she began to write songs.

Since 1999, Mai has been one of the two lead singers and one of the four songwriters in the indie folk/rock band RAINING JANE. She also plays guitar and cello in the group. The band has carved a name for themselves in the independent music scene, and in 2008 they co-wrote “A Beautiful Mess” with JASON MRAZ, which appeared on his chart-topping album “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things.” They’ve also had songs placed on “GREY’S ANATOMY”, “SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE” and “BROTHERS & SISTERS.”

In 2009, venturing out for something a little different, Mai released her first solo effort “Eclipse." An impressive first release, this 3-song sampler features well-crafted songs sung with conviction, hope and honesty. With a personal edge, the songs speak of inner strength, will and the yearning for something more. Appropriately, it feels like the promise of more great music to come! Sonically, the tunes build off of acoustic guitar, vocal and cello with the support of other players on keys, drums, bas, slide, and more, thanks to the tasteful production led by Brad Gordon.

Since the "Eclipse" release, Mai has been selected as a 2010 KERRVILLE NEW FOLK FINALIST and a 2010 INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING CONTEST SEMI-FINALIST. It's no surprise that the art of song craft is truly at the forefront of Mai's musical path. Driven by this love of songwriting, she has made it a point to keep herself at the drawing board attending song seminars, workshops and retreats. She has taught songwriting to girls ages 8-15 at a summer music camp, and after having volunteered for 3 years at “Rock ‘n Roll Camp for Girls” in Portland and Seattle, Mai is now helping a team launch “ROCK N’ ROLL CAMP FOR GIRLS LOS ANGELES,” dedicated to empowering girls through music education.
