About Kirby

Singer /Songwriter Kirby Maurier (marie-aye) is truly a result of hard work and dedication to music. A musician since age 11, she played the clarinet throughout middle school, high school, and college. She began writing songs in the 10th grade and performed them at local talent shows. It was then that Kirby realized she possessed a gift to move people through song.

Growing up in a rough neighborhood, Kirby looked to music and education not only as a means to success but a way to inspire others. She combined her knowledge of music and education and founded the Miami Music Museum, Inc, a non-profit online (virtual) museum in 2010 to preserve Miami’s music history by creating educational displays of musical events and artists that have empowered Miami to become a Mecca of culturally diverse music and to support emerging artists, and encourage others to enter the music profession.

Kirby’s first album “Doing The Most” was released on July 31, 2015. The 9 track album was featured by iTunes and Apple Music during the first week of its release. “Doing The Most” was one of the highest selling independent R&B albums in the South Atlantic Region in 2015. The album also enabled Kirby to become a voting member of the Recording Academy in which she is honored.

About the Song

Long before the Pattie Labelle pie craze, S.P.P. was created a day after Thanksgiving of 2014 in a small studio apartment belonging to producer and friend Vegas Fontaine. “I brought over my recording equipment and a sweet potato pie that was left over from the day before. I figured we’d get hungry in between working on music for the day. A little while after I put it in the stove, the smell of the pie filled the room! I started playing around and singing about how good it smelled and the next thing I knew, I'd written a whole song about pie!” - Kirby
