Maïa Vidal (born February 20, 1988) is an American singer of French, Spanish and Japanese ancestry, and currently residing in Europe (mostly Barcelona and Paris). Initially the lead singer of Kievan Rus, an all-girl punk act, she then went solo under the Stage Name of Your Kid Sister, doing covers of Rancid and Georges Brassens.
She moved on to her own quirky brand of folk music in 2011 with her first solo album, God is my Bike. Her second album, Spaces, was released in 2013.
Maia Vidal provides examples of the following tropes:
- Does Not Like Shoes: She prefers to go barefoot on stage.
- Genre Shift: From punk to folk, and on to indie pop.
- Nice Hat: As Your Kid Sister, she wore a hat shaped like a wolf's head.
- One-Woman Song: "Katerina Ivanovna". Maia seems to have a girl-crush on Dostoyevsky's character.
- Precision F-Strike: "We drank into the dawn, and f*cked into the dark"
- Siamese Twin Songs: "Poetry" and "I'll Sail All Night".
