What is striking about Maylin is her very unique style. She calls it “TRIBAL -BLUES -ROCK : a mix of traditional American music and the diverse cultures she has been around (among
which, the one that was passed on to her by her ancestors from Madagascar).
However, “What you first notice about Maylin is her voice: a voice with great range that feels at ease in every register and that can play with all the facets of her warm and spellbinding timbre”
“Dernières Nouvelles d’Alsace ” Feb 3, 2015
Maylin’s mother, originally from Madagascar gave her a taste for poetry and a deep connection with nature. Whereas, her French-German father ingrained in her the longing for risk and drama. This cultural mix shaped her adventurous soul.
Maylin was raised in a small village of the French countryside. Her personal quest to overcome an extremely shy nature lead her to find ways of being herself and expressing her personality. Pursuing a career as an artist didn’t seem like an obvious calling.
She became a model in Milan, an actress in Paris (La Reine Blanchestarring Catherine Deneuve). Her determination to find her personal expression brought her to the US for 15 years. In New-York, then Los Angeles, she was an actress (October 22nd, In God’s Hands).
Singing was the ultimate challenge for the one who had been told from childhood that she sang "like a saucepan". This drove her to dig out her voice — and therefore her path — of a singer-songwriter. While in the US, she discovered the spirit of the Delta, the spirit of the Blues.
Maylin currently lives between Paris and her village of Poitou where she creates and records most of her songs and her web-series Maylin's lab. She also draws inspiration from her travels, most recently when she met indigenous peoples of South America and was able to begin to learn their shamanic traditions.
In 2005, Maylin Pultar released a solo album On My Way To See Youunder the name Maylin
In 2013, she released the EP Run hippy Run
In 2015 She released the EP Eagle Lion and Crows.
In 2018, under the name Maylin and the Mad Machine, the EP Naked Truth, was produced by Ladell Mclin, a Chicago Bluesman.
Maylin has a habit of marking her rebirths with new stage names. This is how she returns in September 2020 as Maylin, The Buffalo Girl.
On stage, Maylin embodies a character, who is a mixture of woman, raven and
tree: Buffalo girl.
Buffalo girl, her alter-ego, is a fantasized character— a superhero born out of the earth, whose mission is to reconnect people invaded by technology to their ancestral customs and the values of “root peoples”. She strives to reintroduce the notion of communion and respectful links with nature in everyday life.
Maylin desires to walk towards a personal authenticity and to express her dignity along with those who suffer. This desire pushes her to create. Thus, she encourages others by drawing on the healing power of the vibrations of the human voice.
