Los Angeles singer-songwriter Mia Maestro is excited to reveal her extraordinary video for her song “Blue Eyed Sailor.” The video is a groundbreaking collaboration merging the worlds of film, music and art like few music videos have done before. It was directed by media-artist Juan Azulay and Oscar-winning cinematographer Guillermo Navarro (Pan’s Labyrinth) and is based on the beautiful camouflages of artist Cecilia Paredes, with striking cinematography that brilliantly captures the spirit of Mia Maestro’s unique flavor of experimental pop.

TheBlue Eyed Sailor EP will include 3 songs, including “Time To Go” which features Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice, and “Llovera” which was featured on the The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One soundtrack. The album art is above, and you can see the complete track listing below.
Mia Maestro uses her experience as an actress to help fuse together her music with theatrical elements. Born in Buenos Aires, she grew up and found a love for some of the world’s most renowned songwriters like Patti Smith and Leonard Cohen. She began cultivating her own dynamic and evocative voice at a young age, taking singing lessons around the age of thirteen. Influenced by everything from rock to opera, her voice shines, soaring above even the most turbulent orchestrations. Like the best classical pieces, her voice evokes emotion, finding the heart-wrenching notes in the subtlest of inflections. Influenced by singer-songwriters, her voice takes you on a journey, transporting you through poetry to places that once existed only in your imagination.
