Who is Mai Leisz?
She just turned thirty, but she is an old soul. It’s for this reason that artists like David Crosby, Joan Baez, Amos Lee, Seal and others enlist her for bass duties. Mai Leisz (formerly Mai Agan) is a curious and engaging bass player. The Estonian born composer started on classical violin and piano. At the age of 16, she picked up the electric bass. After moving to Sweden she found herself touring and playing with the best of the best from both Estonia and Sweden. Then, on a fateful day, while busking in Stockholm she ran into Greg Leisz and Bob Glaub from Jackson Browne. Things have never been the same since. Mai’s story is almost as magical as her playing. And, while young in years, her style and attitude are strong and powerful… and in demand.

What is Groove – The No Treble Podcast?
This is an ambitious effort. This will be a fascinating conversation. Our goal at Groove is to build the largest oral history of bass players. Why Groove? Most of the content about the bass revolves around gear, playing techniques, and more technical chatter. For us, bassists are creative artists with stories to tell. They are a force to be reckon with. These are the stories and conversation that we will capture. To create this oral history of why these artists chose the bass, what their creative lives are like, and where inspiration can be found.
