Harlem, NY-based Dirty Mae is lead by sweet and sultry crooner Cassie Fireman with her magnetic cabaret style, and an insatiable gift for lyrics and poetry; she cast a spell on Southern boy Ben Curtis, no stranger to the spotlight with vocal grit, southern-bred blues, and a flair for the dramatic arts. Their connection is electric, then add musical prodigy Robin Frost to the mix, and there emerged the truly unique sound that is DIRTY MAE.
With the three founding members coming from completely different backgrounds, it's hard to nail their sound into one genre. One editor described it as "New Orleans Ghost Folk." Emmy-nominated composer, Michael Whalen said "it's like two characters from a Faulkner novel making music today." Our Northern contingency calls it "indie folk," while our Southern friends "just call it Americana!" Whatever you call it, it is an unforgettable sound of old and new worlds, that will keep you swinging all night long. Together they are a recipe for unmistakable success.
Since forming in 2016, they've been featured on the CW Network, headlined NYC’s Big Red Fest, and played world-class venues such as Rockwood Music Hall, Le Poisson Rouge, BB Kings and CitiField for the Yankees Mets Subway Series Concert. They just released their freshman self-titled EP, and are already hard at work on their full length album (scheduled to release Fall 2019).
