Maple Glider is the project of Lismore-born, Melbourne-based songwriter Tori Zietsch, a brand new face on the scene. She’s also a brand new signing to Pieater, the Melbourne record label home to Big Scary, #1 Dads, Airling, and more. 

Zietsch originally rubbed shoulders with the label during their Pie School initiative, where she entered a winning demo and ended up recording a track with label head Tom Iansek and the crew. The single unfortunately never saw the light of day – it was recorded under a two-piece band Zietsch was in at the time which has since folded. The music I create as Maple Glider exists because I write to make sense of my experience, to learn, and because to me, it has always felt like my easiest form of communication. However, it wasn’t to be the end of her story. In 2019 Lansek was enlisted once again to produce and record a series of songs Zietsch had written for her solo project, Maple Glider. “As Tradition” was the first song to be released from that collection of tunes, and you can see why the label wanted to sign her.

My songs centre around the lyrics, exploring intimate themes that are often cathartic to write. I don’t have rules when I make music. I play around, express freely, let go of my expectations, have fun, and stay open

Many of you will know I started working with Pieater last year and it has been the best ever. More recently, I have signed to the incredible Partisan Records to release these songs worldwide. I am so grateful to be working with such a hard working and passionate group of people!!! I want to say a massive Thank You to everyone who has worked on the release of “Good Thing” and supported it thus far. It is a song very close to my heart and I’m damn lucky to be able to do this.
