MaVe, alias Marita Vestad, is an electronica artist originating from the small village of Ringebu, Norway. In 2014, “MaVe” was established together with producer Are Næsset, and the duo releases electronic pop music infused with elements from drum&bass, trap, hiphop and rock. She has been described as “assertive and fearless”(Ole Grauphaugen, head of Rondaståk Festival(NO)); with an uncompromising live show and a distinctive, powerful vocal performance.
MaVe has, over the past two years, independently released multiple singles and music videos, which has led to gigs and support slots both in the UK and Norway. The list includes acts such as BIGBANG(NO), AMBER RUN(UK), FRØDER(NO), MARIANN ROSA(NO), as well as the French electronica artist OWLLE in a sold out Sebright Arms in London. In 2016 MaVe released her debut EP "Overload" followed by a Norway/UK tour with appearances at NRK Innlandscenen, Threshold Festival (Liverpool), O2 Academy Islington (London) and Rondaståk (NO).

Links to the EP:
“Great melodies, sophisticated lyrics, gripping songs with a hint of experimental, complimented by the outstanding voice of MaVe. A daring act unafraid to set themselves apart by the unique arrangements, direct vocals and sometimes dark subject matter. MaVe’s songs are strangely addictive and a gorgeous complex trip, not just aesthetically but emotionally”
– Jar Live
”Powerful Norwegian voice”
” MaVe offers up an intense emotional ballad with ”I Og Wild” in which her sweeping vocal are perfectly matched over a piano tinged soundscape”
”‘Overload’, and its 5 tracks of dark electronica, with the outstanding feature being MaVe’s huge powerful and compelling voice. The highlight in terms of the EP tracks is the opening song ‘I Go Wild’, with a beautifully written piano accompaniment that acts as a great contrast to MaVe’s explosive vocal talents.’
