Listener's Poll: Jivewired Radio Top 50 Spins For 2010

The listeners have spoken, and "Eclipse" by Mai Bloomfield has been voted the 2010 Song Of The Year on Jivewired Radio.

Mai Bloomfield is a singer-songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist. Born and raised in Los Angeles, her musical path began with cello at age nine, and by 16 she was playing and writing her own songs on guitar. Out of college, Mai started singing, writing, and playing guitar and cello in the folk/rock band RAINING JANE. They carved a name for themselves in the indie music scene touring nationally for 6 years (120 shows/yr) and self-releasing 3 albums. In 2008 they co-wrote “A Beautiful Mess” with JASON MRAZ and have had songs placed on shows such as “GREY’S ANATOMY.” In 2010 they helped launch “ROCK N’ ROLL CAMP FOR GIRLS LOS ANGELES,” a non-profit dedicated to empowering girls through music education.

In conjunction with her work in Raining Jane, Mai continues to evolve as a solo artist and cellist. As a cellist, she’s been featured on records with JASON MRAZ and WILLY PORTER and has appeared on programs such as THE TONIGHT SHOW with SARA BAREILLES and INGRID MICHAELSON. As a solo artist, she writes and plays on guitar and has toured with a handful of national artists. In 2009 she released her first solo effort “Eclipse” and in 2010 those songs led her to become a FINALIST in the TELLURIDE TROUBADOUR and KERRVILLE NEW FOLK songwriting contests. In 2011 she’ll be a Showcasing Artist at the National Folk Alliance Conference.

Keep an ear to the ground; more is on the way...
