Maisie Peters has a passion for storytelling through her songwriting. Mentored from youth by her mother, it was evident that songwriting was her passion, entering The Guardian’s Short Story competition at the age of 9. Aided by a voracious appetite for a story, Maisie has a mature yet innocent point of view from which her songs are crafted, with an overarching theme exploring the changing world as her generation grows.

She started uploading her original songs onto her YouTube channel, gathering hundreds of thousands of views. She released her first single Place We Were Made, which has amassed nearly 42 million plays on Spotify. She followed up later that year with the similarly stripped-down piano ballad Birthday. The songs gained attention in indie-pop circles and Place We Were Made was named BBC Introducing's song of the week. Following this attention, Peters signed with Atlantic Records UK. Under their banner, she released various singles and two EPs, Dressed Too Nice for a Jacket and It's Your Bed Babe, It's Your Funeral. Both Feels Like This and Favourite Ex appeared on Love Island.

Peters contributed the song Smile to the soundtrack album Birds of Prey: The Album, for the film Birds of Prey. She was also announced as the opening act for Niall Horan 's Nice to Meet Ya Tour on tourdates in Europe. However, these concerts were cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Peters released work for another soundtrack, this time for Trying: Season 2 (Apple TV+ Original Series Soundtrack). She wrote and performed all songs, with a feature by fellow British recording artist James Bay on the song Funeral.

Peters signed with Ed Sheeran's Gingerbread Man Records. Under this label, she released her debut album You Signed Up for This. The album debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart and was the top selling album in UK independent record stores for that week. With the first two singles of the record, John Hughes Movie and Psycho, Peters garnered her first notations on the British charts.

Peters embarked on her first headlining tour in 2022, touring the United States. Later that year, she joined Ed Sheeran's tour as opening act. While touring she released singles Cate's Brother, Blonde, Good Enough and Not Another Rockstar. She cited various (pop) rock bands as influences in her new music. Peters has announced she will tour Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Peters released Body Better, the lead single from her second album, calling it one of her "most honest songs ever". Following this, she announced her second album The Good Witch, alongside its tracklist, describing it as her own "twisted version of a breakup album". To promote the album, fifteen weeks before the release, Peters began posting weekly tarot cards designed around each track on the album in company of a description of the song. Peters is currently on her North American tour ,The Good Witch Tour, with support from Grace Enger.
Fan reviews:

I’m a new fan of Maisie but her stage presence was so amazing. Definitely one of the best shows I’ve ever witnessed!

Insane absolutely. Maisie is just such an amazing performer. I initially fell in love with her lyricism and her ability to convey emotion, but hearing her sing live... this girl has pipes! I was so impressed with how her voice never faltered despite singing live for over an hour. She was great at crowd work, and the show passed by an instant, a great experience overall!

One of the best shows I've ever seen in my life. Such a joy to see Maisie moving on from small venues to touring with a full band. So happy to have caught her live again this year!

Amazing concert! It was one of the best concerts I’ve attended. Everyone was just singing and dancing, it was awesome!

Love her! Anyone who hasn't been to a Maisie show should go as soon as you can! She is such a talented performer and her vocals are incredible. Even if you don't know any of the songs the vibe of the concert is just so fun and everyone there is the sweetest people.

Maisie Peters and her band put on an absolutely amazing show. I will go every time I get the chance.

Best show ever! Maisie peters never misses! She has an incredible stage presence and it was the best concert I’ve ever been to.
