Alpha Maid is a guitarist and producer from South East London who crafts compositions of lo-fi punk, grunge and glitch electronics.

Her most recent release is second EP ‘CHUCKLE’ released in March 2021 via C.A.N.V.A.S which AQNB found Alpha Maid “at her folksiest sonic approach to date as she enlists her beat-up acoustic guitar to soundtrack introspective impulses”.
Through their collaborative project 33, Billy Bultheel and Alexander Iezzi further consolidate a partnership which has taken many forms.
