Announcing… **Amaya López-C aka Maud the moth**
We are absolutely delighted to welcome to this year’s Riba Rocks festival the amazingly talented Amaya López-C aka Maud the moth. Her unique sound is going to overwhelm festival goers in The Valley this September.
‘Maud the moth is the personal project of the singer-songwriter Amaya López-C, who uses piano and her voice as main instruments to build a musical universe full of shades and intensity.’
You can listen to her music on this link.
‘Her personal style is hard to fit into a tag, since her classical training but yet taste for dark, and heavier sounds made her a sort of stateless musician. To be fair citing influences one must name composers such as Debussy, Turina or Esbjörn Svenson as much as the singing of Mahalia Jackson or the strength of Tool, Faith no more and Battle of mice, among many others.
Maud the moth aims for compositions that range from songwriting to storytelling and focus on abstract ideas and a fantasized perception of reality, consolidating the intense and personal style which always defined Amaya’s singing throughout her wide experience in Madrid’s underground rock and metal scene.’

‘After the release of her debut album “Home Futile Home” (Noma/Nooirax/Excellent Recs. 2012)Maud the moth, caught the attention of the Spanish specialized music press (Mondosonoro, H magazine, Rolling Stone Spain, Calle 20, etc.) gaining excellent reviews, both for her studio and live work. The project was also selected as finalist and semi-finalist for prizes such as “Festimad”,”Termómetro RS”, “Villa de Bilbao” and “Destino Rock in Rio”, and was chosen by the artist Ana Curra to support her show “El Acto” on February 2012.
Maud the moth is currently living in the U.K. and is working on a second album.’
