Jaye Maynard

Jaye became an alto member of The Art Mob in 2017, upon having her arm gently twisted by her friend Paul Martin Kovic. She hadn’t sung in a choir since her days as a youngster with the Middleton (Wisconsin) Civic Choir and Middleton High School Concert Choir (apart from a brief stint in a Celticesque, a cappella, women’s vocal ensemble that accompanied modern dance performances at NYU’s Steinhardt School while she was studying for her Master of Arts in Vocal Performance). Her degree rocketed her toward Broadway and Off Broadway and informed her work as a jazz and cabaret artist covering the Blossom Dearie Songbook.

Jaye spends her days as a transition specialist operating Whirling Dervish Customized Personal Assistance: She provides bespoke human and real estate services including organizing, packing, moving, and staging. As Park Slope Doula, she mothers mothers before and after they give birth. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband Spike, their cat Ethel, their Airbnb guests, and sometimes Henry, a SUNY senior.
