Maisie Hannah Peters[1] (born 28 May 2000) is an English musician from Brighton, England. She is a pop singer-songwriter who started her career by posting original songs on her YouTube account in August 2015. She self describes her musical genre as "emo girl pop".[citation needed]

Career[edit]

In 2017, Peters released her debut singles "Place We Were Made" (August 2017) and "Birthday" (November 2017) respectively, but it wasn't until 2018 when the singer began to gain more notice. During this year she signed for Atlantic Records UK, a division of Warner Music UK Limited. It was under this label that she released her single "Worst of You", which is her most played song on her Spotify discography, amassing almost 82 million streams. A few months later she released another single titled "Best I'll Ever Sing".

She released her debut EP titled Dressed Too Nice for a Jacket at the end of 2018.[2][3][4]

In 2019, Peters released two more singles, "Stay Young" and "Favourite Ex", with the latter, along with "Feels Like This", appearing on ITV's Love Island during the summer. In October 2019, she released her second EP, It's Your Bed Babe, It's Your Funeral.[5]

Her song "Smile" was on the soundtrack album Birds of Prey: The Album, for the film Birds of Prey, released by Atlantic Records on 7 February 2020.[6] That same month, Peters was announced as the supporting act for a majority of the European leg of Niall Horan's Nice to Meet Ya Tour.[7]

In April 2020, she started an online book club known as "MP Book Club".[8] The first book for May 2020 was Exciting Times by Naoise Dolan.

In May 2021, Peters was announced as writing the new soundtrack album for the Apple TV+ original series Trying.[9] The album features the original songs from the show’s second season written and performed by Peters. Subsequent to the announcement of the release of this album, "Funeral", the lead track for this album featuring fellow British recording artist James Bay was released on 4 May 2021. The first play of this song appeared on New Music Daily[10] hosted by Zane Lowe on Apple's in house radio station Apple Music 1.

On 15 June 2021, it was announced that Peters had joined Ed Sheeran's Gingerbread Man Records label.[11][12][13]
