Inside Mae Muller’s career so far as UK star takes on Eurovision 2023

UK singer-songwriter Mae Muller, 25, is ready to take on the Eurovision Song Contest this year with her upbeat pop track I Wrote A Song.

The star, who has cited Lily Allen and Gwen Stefani as her influences in the past, will follow in the footsteps of SPACE MAN singer Sam Ryder, 33, who came second in the competition last year.

While her Eurovision debut has seen the singer rise to fame on a national level, this isn’t the first time she has taken to the stage in Liverpool or performed alongside internationally famous acts.

Mae, born “Holly Mae Muller”, has actually rubbed shoulders with some high-profile stars, including Little Mix, Sigala and even Mika, who hosted the show and performed in Italy last year.

Without further ado, takes a deep dive into Mae’s impressive career up to now ahead of her dazzling debut on the world stage.

Mae Muller made her first acting appearance at the age of nine 

Mae grew up in Kentish Town, London with one brother and three half-brothers.

The budding star found her love of music at an early age, enrolling at the Fine Arts College in Belsize Park, North London.

She started writing songs when she was just eight years old and, at the age of nine, went on to star in the music video for Mika’s hit single Grace Kelly.

Mae Muller was working in a local pub when she was first discovered 

The singer was working shifts at her local pub in Kentish Town when she landed her first record deal.

Mae, who was also working at American Apparel at the time, started publicly performing in her late teens, asking her friend to produce a few demos for her in exchange for a bottle of wine.

She was then discovered in 2017 when she uploaded the demos to SoundCloud and, after sharing a video of her singing to Instagram, her future manager got in touch.

After getting taken up by her manager, Mae’s debut After Hours was released in February 2018 and she was signed to Capitol Records that same year.

Mae Muller has supported Little Mix at the same Liverpool arena used for Eurovision

The star is no stranger to the huge stage at the M&S Bank Arena, which can fit up to 11,000 people.

Mae previously performed in the iconic venue when she supported none other than X Factor girl group Little Mix on their 2019 stadium tour.

“I have been to Liverpool a few times,” Mae confirmed in an interview as reported by the star.

“I was actually there when I supported Little Mix on tour and we did like three shows at the arena. So I’m definitely looking forward to going back.”

Mae’s team-up with Little Mix came after she released her debut studio album, Chapter 1, on April 5 of that same year.

Following the successful tour, she also announced her own first national tour across five cities in the United Kingdom.

Mae Muller found mainstream success this year with DJ Sigala 

The star entered the charts at no 57 in 2021 when she joined the Swedish artist collective Neiked and the American rapper Polo G on the single Better Days.

The track peaked at no 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and 32 on the UK Singles Chart.

In March of this year, Mae collaborated with Sigala, Caity Baser and Stefflon Don for the single, Feels This Good, which solidified her one to watch.

I Wrote A Song was then released that same month, and the track smashed records by becoming the First UK Eurovision entry in over a decade to debut in the UK Singles Chart’s top 40.

Mae Muller is excited to represent the UK in Eurovision 2023 

After being announced as this year’s entry for Great Britain, she said: “I’m so excited to participate in Eurovision this year and represent the UK!

“I’ve loved watching Eurovision all my life, so to compete in such a massive music competition is simply brilliant.

“I’m a huge fan of so many of the artists that have found success at Eurovision, from ABBA to Måneskin!

“Sam Ryder was so amazing last year and proved the UK can be back on the left-hand side of the leader board!”

Speaking about her inspiration for the song, she explained: “I wrote the song I Wrote a Song a few months ago when I was going through a hard time and wanted to feel empowered about relationships, so for it to be chosen for this year’s UK Eurovision song is honestly a dream!”
