Everything You Wanted to Know About 'Blonde' Singer-Songwriter Maisie Peters

There truly never has been a better time to be a Maisie Peters fan.

We've been infatuated ever seen we first heard her one-of-a-kind voice in 2020, and she's continually kept us on our toes with her witty, charming and always infectious songwriting that's always relatable without ever being predictable or trite. Her songs often read like diary entries ripped from the pages of our own lives, and from her completely irresistible "Psycho" to her incredible newer releases including "Blonde," "Good Enough" and "Not Another Rockstar," we can't get enough.

Maisie also recently wrapped up a massive European stadium tour with Ed Sheeran, and this week, she'll begin her "i'm telling the whole of america tour," kicking off Friday, Nov. 4 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. Looking forward to catching her? Here's everything we learned about Maisie as our latest Woman Crush Wednesday.

Fun Facts:

1. One of Maisie's unique talents is speaking really fast—and that includes an impressive rendition of the song "Getting Married Today" from Stephen Sondheim's Company.

"I used to be able to do this song from a musical, and I still do it. If I'm having an injection or I need to take my mind off something, I'll try to do the whole song really fast. I can try to do it now—'Pardon me, is everybody here? Because if everybody's here I'd like to thank you all for coming to the wedding. I'd appreciate you going even more I mean, you must have lots of better things to do and not a word of it to Paul…' That's all I can do, now. I remember finding it when I was young, and I was a weird kid who liked to memorize things."
