Early and Personal Life
Maisy Stella is the youngest daughter of famous Canadian folk duo The Stellas. She and her sister grew up without access to any type of technology.
Maisy and Lennon were cast on “Nashville” even before they catapulted to fame with their YouTube cover version of Robyn / Erato’s “Call Your Girlfriend.” They posted the video on May 30, 2012. Their transcendent harmonies immediately went viral, and today the video has over 20 million views. They have appeared numerous times on “Good Morning America,” performed on “The View,” and have successful singles on the two “Nashville” soundtracks which together have sold 2 million tracks to date. In December 2012, their Christmas song, “Christmas Coming Home,” debuted.
Maisy’s favorite subjects at school are math and social studies. Like Lennon, she loves being outside, recording songs, making home movies with friends, and anything creative and musical. Maisy is an accomplished singer and also plays the ukulele, guitar and piano. Her favorite song to perform is “Ho Hey” and her favorite artists are Neon Trees and Katy Perry.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, producer R.J. Cutler recalls the chain of events. “When Maisy auditioned for us, we were completely blown away. Then she told us she had a 13-year-old sister named Lennon and that the two of them often sang together. So we asked them both to come in and audition.”
Some of the most exciting moments in Maisy and Lennon’s burgeoning careers have been performing at the Grand Ole Opry, as well as playing LP Field in Nashville before nearly 70,00 fans at CMA Music Fest. They’ve also gotten to meet many artists they admire, including Harry Styles, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Zac Brown, and have realized that some of the biggest stars in the world are the sweetest people they ever met. They are most grateful that their first acting job has enabled them to learn from their amazing co-stars, whom they count as friends.
