Siren and Friends —
Siren Mayhew is a vocalist, pianist, & composer hailing from Martha’s Vineyard. She began singing publicly at the age of 5. In 2008, at 16, she won the first-ever Boston Pops High School Broadway Sing-Off, earning her a performance with the Pops on the Fourth of July on the Boston Esplanade. In 2017 she entered the New England Song Writing Contest and received a Judge’s Choice Award for her 2016 single, “Mars”. She has performed at countless events around the Vineyard as well as on the mainland. Among her major performances are two guest performances in London at the Breakthrough Breast Cancer benefit held in Cadogan Hall in 2010 and 2011, performances with the Cape Symphony in 2016 (in which she played an original composition accompanied by the orchestra) and again in their 2017 Holiday Pops concert, and concerts at First Night Chatham in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2017. She currently sings with the Sultans of Swing – a wedding band that plays on the Vineyard and around the country. Siren collaborates with several local bands, in addition to performing her original music.
“I’ve worked with many, many young performers during my years in music. Many were greatly talented. Few, though, seemed totally ready for the stage. Sometimes, a young artist is instinctively and intuitively a great performer. I look forward to watching [Siren’s] development”
— KEITH LOCKHART (CONDUCTOR OF THE BOSTON POPS ORCHESTRA)
“This girl has a world-class talent...period!...She’s an old soul and the mechanism is in place for her to be a great artist.”
— MICHAEL STRASSEN (ACCLAIMED MUSICAL THEATER DIRECTOR IN THE WEST END, LONDON)
