“A good friend turned to me and said ‘I bet you can write a song’.  And I begrudgingly accepted the challenge, it turns out he was right.”  This simple bet set off a chain reaction that led Megan Brown to become the alt-rock artist Makiisma (Mah-kees-ma).  Having performed and toured as a violinist and vocalist with numerous bands over the past decade, Brown was no stranger to the music scene before the spring of 2017 when Makiisma, backed by a three-piece band, took shape.  As Makiisma, Brown, a lab technician by day, creates music infused with heartfelt passion. Topped with haunting vocals, soulful violin, and energetic keys, her music draws the listener in and leads them on a journey through the many dynamic shifts that are characteristic of her songs.  Makiisma’s unique song-writing and melodic intuitions have led the band to pen their own genre for their music; doom-folk.   Bringing together elements of the classical world with her passion for heavy, raw, expressive music Makiisma creates songs that lie somewhere between Portishead, Black Mountain, and death gospel artist Chelsea Wolfe.
