Aya Maguire enchants listeners with a powerful voice on her album The Sandcastle King. Words cannot even describe her exact sound. When listening, one can find similarities with Copeland and Fleetwood Mac. From the poignant lyrics and descriptive visual metaphors, Maguire makes her voice into a storytelling instrument.

The album exemplifies the waves of heartbreak, unrequited love, growth, and shows how one turns struggles into strengthened victories. Quoting Maguire directly, she explains that “not everything one feels can become good music, honest emotion is just one necessary component”. By mixing in authentic reflecting and a powerful voice, she makes a statement on the album The Sandcastle King that announces she has arrived for listeners to hear her stories.
